Most of the time the zombies typically fall into one of the five basic types:
- "rise from the dead" zombies,
- voodoo created zombies,
- viral or parasitic zombies,
- radiation created zombies, or
- the experiment-gone-really-wrong zombies.
(And yes, I just revealed the title to my new ya zombie book that will be out in a couple of weeks!!!)
In my zombie world, a virus is what created my zombies. No one really knows how the virus started, it's just an accepted, highly contagious disease that must be dealt with. The virus causes dead humans to reanimate and go on a feeding frenzy. The virus is transmitted to living humans through zombie bites. If a human survives, he/she is doomed to turn into a zombie, which in turn, goes on a feeding frenzy.
Of all the types of zombies out there, what's your favorite kind?
