An Interview with Bryan Cassiday about Zombie Books
The following is an Interview with Bryan Cassiday, author of Zombie Apocalypse: The Chad Halverson Series.The five-book boxed set contains the complete and unabridged editions of Zombie Maelstrom, Zombie Necropolis, Sanctuary in Steel, Kill Ratio, and Poxland.
I: When did you first start writing zombie books?
BC: In 2011. The first zombie book I wrote was Zombie Maelstrom. Publisher's Weekly did a hatchet job on it when it first came out, but that did not deter me. I wrote four more zombie books.
I: Do you plan on writing more zombie fiction?
BC: I have recently written zombie short stories. I haven't written another zombie novel in a while.
I: Are you going to write another one?
BC: I haven't made up my mind on that. I hadn't planned on doing another one, but I might change my mind. It would depend on whether there was any demand for one.
I: What do you want to accomplish as a writer? BC: I want to take you out of your comfort zone. You know that commercial where the advertiser wants you to be comfortable in your own skin? Well, I don't want you to be comfortable in your own skin. I want you to squirm.
