There are certain words in the English language that just don’t seem to lend themselves to rational pairing. Here are some examples: underwater polo. Chocolate-covered bacon. Tornado Football. Exploding automobile. Deep-fried Coke. Zombie erotica.
For the record, all the stuff I mentioned above really does exist. As much as you may be intrigued to hear about the rest of them, today we’re here only to talk about the one phrase in the above list that I personally haven’t experienced live: zombie erotica! But I have come close to a live experience, specifically through having recently read the novel “The Blooming” by Tonia Brown.
Released in early 2010, “The Blooming” is a little tale of adventure, deception, sex, and of course, the walking dead. The story follows a documentary team that accompanies a professor to a small, unexplored island in the South Pacific. The professor is looking for a mythical blooming flower whose existence has never been proven, and as is usually the case with situations like these, the characters get stranded on the island and get more than they bargained for when things go awry. Including the aforementioned sex and the walking dead.
