Which literary figures would you least want to encounter as zombies?

Could you outrun an undead Jeffrey Archer? Could you fend off the reanimated corpse of Virginia Woolf with a selection of experimental fiction in hardback?

Consider the possibilities here.

Michael Crichton was a big lad, would make an imposing Wight, long reach and difficult to bring down

FleurDuMal - 16 Feb 2021 14:45:45 (#2 of 45)

Charles Dickens would probably be good as a zombified pursuer. He’d be extra-vengeful.

Frodo Baggins.

It took him bloody AGES to get there the first time. Can you imagine how long the bloody books would be if he was a zombie!?

Marquis de Sade would not be nice. I'm not sure about Casanova either.

Zombie Fay Weldon?

SinnerBoy - 16 Feb 2021 14:51:31 (#6 of 45)

Tiny Tim probably wouldn't be too much bother, unless the little bastard was in a group. You wouldn't notice him, with all the adults.

DesEsseintes - 16 Feb 2021 14:52:24 (#7 of 45)

Rushdie would be quite frightening. Also Jilly Cooper.

mingmong - 16 Feb 2021 14:53:00 (#8 of 45)

DBC Pierre would be one of those zombies that runs, and could jump out at you from a darkened doorway

Most of the rest of them would just lumber towards you and could be easily outpaced

Dubris - 16 Feb 2021 14:53:13 (#9 of 45)

Horseflesh might distract a zombie Jilly Cooper for long enough for you to make your escape.

nemo75 - 16 Feb 2021 14:53:59 (#10 of 45)

I messed up, didn't I? <sobs>

SorrellA - 16 Feb 2021 14:54:18 (#11 of 45)

Zombie Roald Dahl, he was a big one.

Dubris - 16 Feb 2021 14:54:59 (#12 of 45)

#10 - Characters are up for grabs here just as much as authors, I think.

popstar7 - 16 Feb 2021 14:56:46 (#13 of 45)

Zombie Marcel Proust transported back to his childhood home in Combray by the transcendent taste of braaiiinnns.

FleurDuMal - 16 Feb 2021 14:57:38 (#14 of 45)

Jane Austen would be fearsome. All that polite, English lady thing is just a front for her ravening brain-hunger.

carterbrandon - 16 Feb 2021 14:58:56 (#15 of 45)

The zombie lonely long distance runner would be a zoombie.

Dubris - 16 Feb 2021 14:59:30 (#16 of 45)

#14 - Trap her in a length of sprigged muslin.

nemo75 - 16 Feb 2021 15:00:25 (#17 of 45)

Miss Marple.

Catspyjamas17 - 16 Feb 2021 15:00:53 (#18 of 45)

Haruki Murakami as he is a keen runner.

tasselhoff - 16 Feb 2021 15:01:07 (#19 of 45)

A zombie Stephen King would be pretty similar to the un-undead version until he scooped your brains out. So beware.
