Call for Abstracts
Economics of the Undead: Blood, Brains & Benjamins
The editors seek abstracts for essays exploring the relationship between economics and the undead, especially zombies and vampires. The chosen essays will appear in a collection to be published by Rowman & Littlefield….
We at the Annals of Improbable Research have from time to time published material of that sort, the latest being “Co-Existence of Vampires and Humans Is Possible: Proofs Based on Models Derived from Fiction Literature, Comic Books and Films“, by Wadim Strielkowski, Evgeny Lisin, Emily Welkins. That article appears in the special Sloths & Vampires issue of the magazine.
(Thanks to investigator Rose Fox for bringing this to our attention.)
BONUS: Wadim Strielkowski and Evgeny Lisin also produce the Supernatural Economics blog
