About the Author:

Christian Sellers (born 1978) is the co-author of 'The Complete History of the Return of the Living Dead' and the feature documentary 'More Brains: A Return to the Living Dead'. His first break came as a writer for the international horror magazine GoreZone, in which he was a contributor for from 2007 until 2009.

His work has also appeared in issues of Shock Horror and Paracinema, as well as websites like Dr. Gore's Funhouse, Retro Slashers, Love-It-Loud.com and the Friday the 13th site. 'The Complete History of the Return of the Living Dead' was published by Plexus Publishing Ltd in January 2011. 'More Brains: A Return to the Living Dead' was released on DVD in October 2011.

Born in Birmingham, West Midlands UK in 1982, Gary Smart has always been a fan of all things horror. From lending out VHS copies of 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' to his fellow 5 year old classmates to building models of Dr Channard from 'Hellbound: Hellraiser II' at the age of 12 Smart has always had a fascination with the macabre.
Smart has been a lifelong fan of 'The Return of the Living Dead' and spent his youth playing zombies with neighborhood friends. Smart was always Ernie Kaltenbrunner. A lifelong dream finally came true in 2007 when Smart became friends with actor Don Calfa. Smart organized Calfa's first UK convention appearance at the NEC Birmingham in 2007 and also the following year in 2008. Since their first meeting in 2007 Smart and Calfa have become close friends and are in weekly contact. Smart also became close friends with actress Beverly Randolph.

After two painstakingly stressful years 'The Complete History of the Return of the Living Dead' was finally released in January 2011 by Plexus Books UK. Featuring interviews with over 100 cast members and over 300 exclusive interviews 'The Complete History of the Return of the Living Dead' became an instant success with fans of the franchise.
