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:
