About V. M. Zito
Vincent M. Zito lives in Connecticut with his wife and his daughter. He works during the week at a New England ad agency, where he is the creative director.
Zito also writes a little about the zombie genre, exploring some of the reasons behind our fascination with zombies. He's interested in how a fascination with the apocalypse might illustrate the powerlessness people are feeling right now. It's a thoughtful approach, shared by other writers as well.
On his blog, Zito also explores short horror fiction, comic books, and even lucid dreaming. His comments are well-organized and articulate. Most of his reveiws praise those same qualities in his fiction writing.
What Makes V. M. Zito Unique?
In an ordinary taxonomy, we use those fancy Latinized names for ordinary plants and animals. Thus, human beings are referred to as Homo Sapiens sapiens (yes, "sapiens" is in there twice. But that's not important right now). Zito, after considering the various types of zombies, developed a classification of scientific names for a few varieties of shamblers.
Zombi Voodooicus (Voodoo created), Zombi Romeros (classic), Zombi Sprintus (can run), Zombi Speechifysis (can talk), Zombi Twentyeightus (still kind of alive), Zombi Supersmartus (the thinking zombie) and, of course Zombi What-the-effus (has skills that make readers go WTF?).
