News and some zombie books

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have landed myself in a new library. I am now in the reference department of the Irmo Branch Library of the Lexington County Public Library in South Carolina. So if you are ever in the area, stop on by and say hello.

We have a great teen area with some comfy chairs and a really friendly staff that likes to work with people of all ages.

Now to talk about some books. I've been going over some zombie titles the last few months and have found a few gems. One that is for the grown up guys out there is World War Z: and oral history of the zombie war. This one has been around for a while, but if you missed it you really should pick it up.

For the younger readers out there is the series by David Lubar called Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie. The first book is called My Rotten Life and we learn how Nathan becomes a zombie and how he tries to cure his condition. It is a fun read and continues on for a number of books.

Finally there is a new book that just came out called Zombies vs. Unicorns. This one is a collection of stories by just about everyone who is hip in teen books these days. I'm waiting for my library to get this one in and hope that I can get the first jump on it. If anyone has had a chance to read this one, please let us know what you thought of it.


  1. I've heard to much about zombies v. unicorns, but haven't had a chance to get to it. I'll be interested to hear what your readers think! :)

  2. Congrats on the job Zack!!!!!! That's awesome.
    The "World War Z: and oral history of the zombie war" sounds pretty cool and I will have to give it a read.
