Zombies: A Hunter's Guide; from Osprey Publishing

Osprey Publishing, renowned military history publishers out of Great Britain, recently produced a guide to zombie hunting. This volume identifies all major breeds of zombie, including undead animals, a rare and frequently overlooked zombie subset. It also includes an overview of anti-zombie equipment and tactics. Osprey is famous for gorgeous, full-color artwork that details the subject of each book. You can sample some of that art in this video from Osprey:

This book is an excellent addition to the literature because, despite their backwards view on gun control, there's been a lot of interesting work done on the zombie eradication issue in the United Kingdom. These guys know their stuff. So when I hear a new anti-zombie handbook is being released, I take notice.

You can order the book from Amazon here.

Osprey produced an excellent fake video to promote their book. "Fake?" you say. Yes, fake. I could tell early on because despite what Michael Jackson would have you believe, zombies don't dance. You'll see what I mean... And at the end, all the "zombies" are credited as Osprey employees. Unless that UK socialized medicine is even crappier than I've been led to believe, I doubt Osprey has a zombie workforce.

Here it is:
