What’s hot…

I’m tentatively down to do a panel at Conjure (you’ve joined, right?) on What’s Hot? This is, as far as I can tell, a variation on the annual year in review panel CHARLES and I have done in previous years. One thing that is hot – and the Stephen King review below brought this to mind – is zombies. For some reason, everyone from Alex Irvine and Kelly Link to Stephen King is writing about zombies. I’m sure there’s some deep cultural reason for this, but it is interesting.

  1. Zombies are definitely big, and you’ve seen that in the cinemas in the past few years too: 28 Days Later (which no one seems to be publicly accusing of plagiarising Day of the Triffids, which surprised me), Day of the Dead remake, Land of the Dead, Shaun of the Dead. A lot of zombie comics, too.
