Austin Peay State University professors to publish scholarly book on zombies

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Dr. Antonio Thompson, Austin Peay State University associate professor of history, sat in his office after final exams last December, contemplating the moral implications of killing a zombie.
