George Romero may have passed away in July of 2017, but unsurprisingly, he’s not letting the grave hold him back from telling us one last zombie tale. Romero is world-famous for bringing us classic zombie films like The Night of the Living Dead, and before his death, he was working on a novel called The Living Dead. Unfortunately, Romero passed before he was able to finish the story, but Daniel Kraus has signed on to finish the novel, which Tor will publish in fall of 2019.
In another life, I used to be a Youth Services librarian which means I have read more than my fair share of books aimed at 12-17 year olds. One of the criticisms against young adult books (YA) is that they are too formulaic to ever have any real stakes. And for horror, those stakes are vital. But a recent groundswell of YA titles exploring generational fears, both real and imagined, highlight the complexity and the subversive value of the genre.
When they kill Godzilla, it's not with explosions... instead, they sneak up to it while it's asleep & slowly steal its oxygen while mournful music plays. When Godzilla -- the product of nuclear testing -- dies, it's SAD, almost a euthanasia. https://t.co/W7rkj9hvmF
Watched the 1954 Japanese cut of GODZILLA on @FilmStruck -- well acted, great score, wonderful effects. And Godzilla is legitimately disturbing -- he seems glossy and knobby, even tumorous, which is such an interesting physical take. https://t.co/T1UrYIiVpW
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
