Interview: The spirituality of George Romero’s zombie movies

I’ve just been interviewed by TheoFantastique, the excellent website devoted to examining the religious resonances of fantasy, horror, and science fiction.

In “Spirituality in Romero’s Living Dead Films” (Dec. 3), TheoFantastique’s proprietor, John Morehead, quizzes me about my academic paper “Loathsome Objects: George Romero’s Living Dead Films as Contemplative Tools,” which appears in my forthcoming fiction-and-nonfiction collection Dark Awakenings.

On a related note, the publisher recently (and at my request) moved the book’s publication date back from the end of this month to the beginning of January. Hardly a blip on the scheduling radar of all the readers who keep asking me how much longer they’ll have to wait, but a significant shift in terms of the book’s overall momentum.
