Who would win in a no-holds-barred battle to the death? Mankind or Mankind Undead? In honour of the inaugural Blogger Book Fair (All’s Fair in Blogs and More!), they go head-to-head in the TOURNAMENT OF MONSTERS!
Mankind: There is no monster more frightening than mankind. Our vices can drive us to depravity. We can be purely evil. We can be mad. Sitting atop the food chain with intellect that has made us masters of our world, we have limitless power to destroy. Evil lurks within us all. Defended by Brandon R. Luffman, author of Out After Dark and Best Served Hot
Zombies: Sure, mankind is scary with its greed and self-destructive tendencies. But do you know what eats mankind? That’s right. Zombies! The walking dead are the ultimate monsters. They groan. They eat brains. They dance to Thriller. And what’s worst than being chewed to death by the corpses of your former friends and family? Defended by Wynne Channing, author of What Kills Me
