The Science behind the Undead

List of Articles on the Science behind Zombies

I’ve been reading a lot of articles on the science behind the undead recently. I don’t want to take myself too seriously! but I do at least want to present realistic zombies in my Zombie novel. I’ve collated some of these articles here to refer back to. You may also find them interesting
