The third question I asked our Zombie authors was:
Pop Quiz: The item to your left is your only weapon during the Zombie Apocalypse. What is it?
So how many of our authors are screwed?? Read to find out…
Armand Rosamilia, author of Dying Days 4 –
A scrap piece of paper. I might not have a really good chance of survival.
Julianne Snow, author of Glimpses of the Undead –
My cell phone – yes! I can call for reinforcements!! I feel like I just won the lottery!
Thomas M. Malafarina, author of Ridge of Dead (Dead Kill Book 1) –
A pair of scissors. Should work out just fine. At least I’d take a stab at it.
Charles Ingersoll, author of Day Zero –
Boy, am I in trouble… it’s a 12 inch flexible ruler.
Stephen Kozeniewski, author of The Ghoul Archipelago –
It’s a stapler. They switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn’t bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it’s not okay because if they take my stapler then I’ll set the building on fire.
Sarah Lyons Fleming, author of Until the End of the World –
My cat. At least she’s not declawed.
Stevie Kopas, author of Haven –
Oh yay! I get to answer this one this time! (I ask this at the end of all my interviews on Horror Metal Sounds.) The item directly to the left of me is a venti iced coffee, sugar free hazelnut, no milk. Bring it on, apocalypse.
TS Alan, author of The Romero Strain: A Zombie Novel –
A large knife.
John O’Brien, author of A New World: Untold Stories –
Luckily, it’s a knife. But I’m not sure what good that would actually do.
Ian McClellan, author of One Undead Step: A Zombie Novel –
A five shot Taurus snub-nosed .38 revolver.
T.W. Piperbrook, author of Contamination 5: Survival –
A MONSTER energy drink. Oh boy.
Shana Festa, author of Time of Death: Induction –
A coaster. But at least it’s made of stone so if I give it a good toss maybe I’ll make it. Who am I kidding?
Bryan Cassiday, author of Poxland –
A meat cleaver.
Robert Chazz Chute, author of The Plague of Days Season One –
Futon. I guess I could hide under it. Kind of unwieldy.
Rhonda Parrish, author of Waste Not –
Uh. That’s either a pen or a digital camera. Maybe my odds aren’t as great as I thought they were >_<
Rebecca Besser, author of Cursed Bounty –
Hmm… That would be a treadmill, a box fan, a phone, or a TV tray stand. That could be interesting in many ways.
Claire Riley, author of Odium II: The Dead Saga –
**looks sad** A can of Pepsi Max
Jack Wallen, author of The Last Casket –
My mobile phone. I’ll take it because it would enable me to gather together a horde of my own! Hell yeah.
Jay Wilburn, author of Zombies Believe In You –
A stack of notebooks with ghostwriting jobs at various stages of completion. I’ve always suspected these would be the source of my death one way or another.

Great answers! If I could ask a follow-up question, I’d ask Ian McClellan if he always writes with his revolver next to him. 😀
I’m wondering that now too Becky! Thanks for the comment 🙂
