My guest today is Peter Cawdron, who comes from the land down under.  I don’t have to pay the Men At Work a royalty for saying that because Peter is an honest to God Australian zombie enthusiast.

Peter’s the author of the Z is for Zombie series of books which include What We Left Behind and All Our Tomorrows.  These books tell the story of teenager Hazel, who in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, searches for Steve, David, and Jane, the only people who ever understood her.

An avid fan of such classic science fiction writers as Philip K. Dick, Arthur C. Clarke and Michael Crichton, Peter is also a prolific science fiction author in his own right.

  1. Thanks for the reblog. It was a great interview. On the part about Kirk calling Scotty on the phone and how that’s difficult giving space/time issues – if you read Redshirts by John Scalzi, there’s a part where the main character uses a payphone like kiosk that allows him to place a call across the universe. It doesn’t really explain how it works but recognizes that calling someone across the universe is a problem and that somehow this invention made it possible. Space travel is fun to think about but the more you do, the more impossible it seems without the invention of tech that we can’t even conceive of currently. Anyway, keep fighting those zombies!

    • Ooo, Redshirts is on my reading list. I’ll look out for that section.

      I loved The Martian because (for the most part) it avoided handwavium and absurdium. I hope that’s a sign of things to come 🙂
