Zombies -- the New Vampires? by Scott M. Baker

Please drop by Rea's Reading Room where, as part of my blog tour, I attempt to answer the question if zombies are the new vampires.  See the excerpt below. 

When I asked Rea if there was anything in particular she wanted me to write about for this guest blog, she offered the topic of whether zombies are the new vampires.  Since I’ve written extensively in both subgenres, I jumped at the chance.  However, I don’t think you can say that zombies are the “new” vampires.  That implies that the gut-munching living dead are replacing the blood-sucking undead as the dominant monster in the culture, which is far from the truth.  They’re distinctly separate subgenres with widely different fan bases.
