    LOTF 61: Daniel Kraus on Posthumously Collaborating with George A. Romero

    In this episode, we do something a bit more special. Daniel walks us through what it was like to collaborate posthumously with the late great George A. Romero to write The Living Dead. It is a breathtaking story, with many surprising twists and turns. Did Romero reach across time and space to help Daniel write this book? We don’t have the answer to that, and neither does Daniel. Listen to the episode. Hear Daniel share his story.

    You decide.
