Undead in the West

From: Cynthia J. Miller:

I am also very pleased to announce the publication of  Undead in the West:
Vampires, Zombies, Mummies, and Ghosts on the Cinematic Frontier,
co-edited with Bow Van Riper (Scarecrow Press).

The volume’s seventeen chapters, contributed by an array of scholars from
Europe, Latin America, Canada, and the U.S., look at the history,
complexities, and implications of incursions of the Undead into the West in
films such as BILLY THE KID VS. DRACULA, John Carpenter’s VAMPIRES, PLANET
TERROR, SE SEI VIVO SPARA, BUBBA HO-TEP, and more, along with AMC’s THE
WALKING DEAD and the CW’s series, SUPERNATURAL.  Issues of restorative
justice, empowerment, liminality, racism, exploitation, and the
construction of masculinity are among the topics discussed in depth in the
volume’s essays

The volume is available on Amazon, as well as through it’s webpage:
