Finally. Finally we're at letter Z. This has been tougher to do that I originally thought, but it feels good to finally come to the end!
Let's face it, we love zombies. And steampunk does too! And why not? It's a fantastic contrast - the fusion of a perfect and idealized past with the gruesome and horrible zombie-laden future.
For example, in the YA book, Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, Seattle has built a huge wall to contain the "Rotters." These zombies were once regular people, but a terrible gas called the "Blight" escaped from the ground and transformed these citizens into flesh hungry monsters.
Here are some great examples of steampunked zombies:
|Stuff steampunk nightmares are made from|
|Oops. Got just a touch of the "Blight."|
|An airship full of brains!|
|This dude actually scares the shit out of me.|
|Was a noble woman, now loves to eat brains.|
