I write a roughly monthly article about the science of science fiction for Blastr, SyFy Channel's online portal for news and views. Just in time for Halloween, my new article is up: Scientist uses his brains to explain how to make zombies plausible. I've been thinking about zombies a bit lately -- I've been eating up* books about them too -- and thought it would make a fun topic for Blastr. May I add? Coolest. Artwork. EVER! My kudos to the Blastr art department for the awesome and awesomely clever graphic to go with the text!
