Why Have I Been Taken by ZOMBIES?

HALLOWEEN is around the corner, if with this early snow we'll actually have trick or treaters is anyone's guess, but it does get me thinking about Zombies.   I write fiction these days, but realistic, contemporary, fiction (read: LIE), and I'm consumed (yes, a bad pun) by zombies in pop culture.  But in an odd way, zombies live in reality for me.  They are the great metaphor for our times, hordes of people, who can neither love, nor hate, nor read or write, they only live, only consume the flesh of those who do.  For some of us the world is too much with us, for others it has forsaken them.  I root for the living in the AMC Walking Dead series, but then I wait for the zombies to come too.  They are us, if we let them be us.  I wait for Brad Pitt's new movie World War Z: an Oral History of Zombies written by Max Brooks for further insights, unfortunately I will have to wait until December, 2012.  Certainly, the zombies will not consume Pitt.  Only lesser mortals, those ready in some psychological or immoral way to become the other?  I will continue to root for the human, and truly what makes us human.  But I am taken with Zombies these days, and I'm sure there are those that root for the zombies out there?
