Erin’s Bookshelf: A History of the Great Zombie War (The Simpson Experience)

Hello all!

In addition to promoting The Guardians, as well giving you some insight into my writing life, I’d like to use this site to highlight books that I’m reading and loving.

So welcome to Erin’s Bookshelf!

This first book is a little bit of a cheat, since I did contribute to it 😉 But I love it, and so much work was put into it by so many people, I think it deserves a little bit of love!


From Amazon: “There was little warning. It was upon us. Living death. This collection of historical documents includes excerpts from diaries, audio recordings, official reports, and chatrooms, as well as photographs, maps, propaganda posters, and even a fornication license. Together they illustrate stories of sacrifice, heroism, and craven cowardice among the population of Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa. These are people from all walks of life, all ages, all colors and creeds, united in one goal: survive the zombie apocalypse. This is our memorial to the fallen.”

This book was actually part of a class I took in college, and everyone in the class contributed to the story. It’s a unique take on the zombie genre, that presents the apocalypse of the undead from multiple points of view, primarily within the perspective of a small college town in Iowa. Each piece of writing is different in voice, style, and focus, but they all work together to tell one story.

If you like zombies, and small Midwestern liberal arts schools, you’re going to want to check this one out!

The book is available in paperback at

Until next time,

Erin K.
