Dead Inside: Poems and Essays About Zombies is a collection of contemporary writing that immediately found a popular home among fans of AMC’s award-winning television series The Walking Dead. In it, you will find poems dedicated to Daryl Dixon and essays on Rick Grimes and Carol Peletier. In general, these literary works tackle the human element and emotional impact of an imagined apocalypse.

A sample syllabus is available with ideas for instructors who wish to use the anthology in a college-level course (Please contact for our educational discount code that students can use to order books directly from us).

Both college classes and book groups may be interested in this list of discussion questions to guide your reading of the anthology.

Additionally, Paul Fuhr, of the Furious Podcast, Drop the Needle, and Afterparty Magazine, put together this playlist of music based on the themes of the collection, which include survival, betrayal, redemption, rebirth, struggle, infection, return, and many others. The playlist was featured on Largehearted Boy, a music and literature blog.

Just as zombies have evolved into an icon of popular culture, this book has already amassed an enthusiastic readership.
