Zombie apocalypse? Where?!

We don't how and we don't know when, but we know this: it's coming. The best thing you can do is accept it and prepare yourself by memorizing every page of Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide. Let us help you with that!

Enter below by 5pm ET, Thursday, April 11 for the chance to win one of Max Brooks' Zombie Survival prize packs. After the contest closes, RandomBot will choose three lucky survivors winners, and we'll contact them via email.

Each prize pack contains:

  • Limited copy of The Zombie Survival Guide with signed bookplate by Max Brooks
  • World War Z, also by Max Brooks
  • The Zombie Survival Guide Deck
  • (2) The Zombie Survival Notes Mini Journals
  • The Zombie Survival Guide Journal
  • The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks
  • For those of you who only want a copy of the book with a signed bookplate (maybe because you already own everything else?!), we have a limited number of those for sale, too! You can nab it here.

    Max Brooks was kind of enough to donate these preparedness packs and had this to say:

    Dear ThinkGeek Readers,

    Thank you!

    Thank you for believing in the crazy idea of a book on how to survive zombies. Thank you for proving that itís okay to approach a seemingly fantastical scenario with logic, common sense, and real-world research. Thank you for validating the notion that no detail is too small, and that no scenario can be overthought. Thank you for taking my work as seriously as I do. Thank you for allowing my passion to become my job.

    Max Brooks

    Thank you, Mr. Brooks, for helping us prepare for the inevitable!

    The contest is now closed. If you're still reading this, we hope this means you made it out alive. Congratulations to the lucky winners: Jen M. from Fort Collin, CO; Melissa W. from West Elizabeth, PA; and Jennifer Bl. from Roseville, MI. If that sounds like you, we'll be in touch shortly.

    We asked you all, "The zombie apocalypse is upon us. WEAPON OF CHOICE?" There was an overwhelming response of "katana", with "crossbow" being a close second. Hmm, we wonder why?
