We are seeking content for a new large format book that will showcase the creativity of the players and game organizers who make HvZ possible. We are looking for writing and artwork that reflects the history, culture and aesthetic of Humans vs. Zombies overall as well as the unique dynamics of individual games.

WRITERS: Send us your HvZ-inspired writing in the form of essays, nonfiction narratives, short fiction, puzzles and mission storylines, and whatever else you’ve got! We have a growing list of articles we would love to see written if you need ideas, they can be located under the WISHLIST category.

ARTISTS & DESIGNERS: Send us your HvZ-inspired artwork. We want to see promotional flyers, photography, paintings and drawings, mission props, and whatever else you’ve got! Since we hope that this book will ultimately be something you can be show friends and family members, we need plenty of artwork and photography to make each page visually interesting. If you feel you have some HVZ-inspired images you think could could help fill our pages, submit them! We also have a growing list of art we'd love to see, so please view our WISHLIST.

Things already in the pipeline:

  • Chris Weed - an oral history of the game's origins
  • Dungeon Master's guide to HVZ
  • An article about women in the game
  • An article about running a game for kids
  • Player Archetypes: There's one in every game
  • Variations of the game – special characters, etc.
  • Modding Guides
  • HvZ Lingo
  • Cards vs. Zombies

  • School posters
  • Photos of games
  • General art
  • Fiction/journals/plots
  • Modded blasters
  • Costumes/make up

The Team:
  • Max Temkin
  • Chris Weed
  • Christie Kliewer
  • Lily Dodge
  • John Mortara
  • Kristina Ness
  • Andrew Ward

Submissions to the project will be taken via our Submittable page.

Is this project still a go? My submissions have been "in-progress" in Submittable since 2012
