URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Zombies: A Hunter's Guide - Joseph A. McCullough

Release Date: 20/09/13
Publisher:  Osprey Adventures


Osprey's hugely popular, Zombies: A Hunter's Guide returns in this deluxe, limited-edition hard cover. Bound in black leather with silver embossing and silver, gilt edging, this beautiful book is sure to be an instant collector's item. Zombies: A Hunter's Guide contains all of the information necessary to recognize and combat this growing threat. Beginning with an explanation of the historical origins of zombies, it follows their history through to the threat they pose to the world today. All varieties of zombie are catalogued and examined, giving their strengths and weaknesses, with a special emphasis on recognition and elimination. Finally, the book covers the tactics and equipment used in zombie fighting, from the man on the street with his sharpened hockey stick to the latest fully automatic grenade launchers and anti-undead armor employed by top-secret government "Containment Teams." Accompanied by numerous full-color reconstructions to help with identification, this book is a must for anyone on the frontlines of the Zombie Wars.


This title is a good bit of fun for fans of the shuffling undead. It’s written to give them a huge running alternate history alongside giving the reader the chance to see the countermeasures placed by the governments of the time.

Its quirky, it’s a whole lot of fun and when added to the cracking illustrations really brings the whole thing, to life. Finally throw into the mix a writing style that just invites you in with its allure and all round it’s a book that I’m going to get a whole lot of fun from as well as some cracking Urban Fantasy writing project idea’s. Great stuff.
