Monster Books Podcast is back with a new episode all about young adult zombie books!

Today host Jessica Scott is getting a little political with some genre mash-ups of the living dead: Out of Salem by Hal Schrieve and Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson. She talks about why horror, and zombie fiction in particular, is so relevant to political discussions and what these books have to say about modern life.

Jessica also discusses body horror and the interesting ways that a zombie protagonist can give us insight into mortality and human nature. Finally, she delves into how friendships evolve and sometimes die and the interesting connections between zombies and witchcraft.
