Warning From The CDC: Zombie Attack!

Saturday, May 21st, 2016


If the world doesn’t end soon, you still have to worry about zombie attacks.

Say what?

That’s right, streets full of wandering, flesh-eating, formerly-human ghouls doing the zombie shuffle.  And you’d better have a plan for your family’s protection, Skippy.

This tongue-in-cheek (I hope) official warning comes from the US Center for Disease Control – the same people who warned us against swine flu and an invasion of bedbugs – yikes!  Here’s part of what they said:

“The rise of zombies in pop culture has given credence to the idea that a zombie apocalypse could happen. Zombies would take over entire countries, roaming city streets, and eating anything living that got in their way. This idea has led many people to wonder “How do I prepare for a zombie apocalypse?”

Zombies just aren’t on movie screens!  Remember me talking about them here?

I warned you!  So, on some future date, if a zombie walks by with the guts of one of your friends hanging from his mouth, don’t come bitching to me.

George Paturzo is the artist who designed the cover of my book in 1993. He also illustrated ‘The Godfather’ by Mario Puzo about 20-years before that. Many people said they look similar.  Together, Puzo and I sold over 500,000,000 books.  For many years I’ve been a consultant for executive business presentations. You can see my work website here:



Pustak Mahal is a large publisher in India who bought the international rights to the book.  It features 2-covers.  Used copies can be purchased here:


My book was also published in Russia and other countries.  I’m still looking for the cover published in China – supposedly it was pirated.  I know I never saw any of the royalties.
