We’ve recently featured a couple of Halloween lead-up posts featuring Bigfoot and Zombies, both scarily good. We’ve shown Green Bean Books’ extremely rare, real and actual, big hairy foot! We’ve recapped Queen Anne Book Company’s “Bigfoot Double Feature,” replete with Sasquatch poopcorn, howling and footprint casting. And we introduced a collection of Bigfoot books. We also published a horrifyingly good Face Out from Seattle Mystery Bookshop for My Life as a White Trash Zombie. Believe it not, zombies, and it’s fast paced!
To continue the theme on this All Hallows Eve, we’re giving away away copies of Finding Bigfoot and Zombie Cribbage! Both are featured in independent bookstores throughout the Northwest this holiday season. Add a comment to this post—Bigfoot sighting, narrow escape from zombies, who (what?) you think would win a game of cribbage between a zombie and Bigfoot—and we’ll randomly select a couple of winners early next week.

I saw Bigfoot this morning. In the mirror.
I think Bigfoot would win in a game of cribbage between Bigfoot and a zombie. Bigfoot has to be pretty smart to stay hidden all these years.
Agreed. A zombie will just drag himself down the middle of the street on a Sunday morning.
Bigfoot would wrap a few zombies in bacon for a snack while kicking some cribbage booty!
Bacon required, for palatability.
I have done Anthropological research into the myth, legend, and lore of the Pacific NW Native Americans and that of the Tibetan People. Bigfoot, Squatch, and Yeti are all quite real! The similarities are stunning, and while their fur coating may differ in color and shag from region to region, their effect upon the native populace does not. Whether it is the hailing of a young Tibetan Woman out laboring in the fields to come and join them in aid of some disguised need while taking on a confusing shape shifting form, or that of someone in present day America out making their way in the wilds, it can be confusing, disorienting, frightening, and fascinating, all at the same time. What seems to be most fascinating to me however is their ability to disappear into portals and thus their interdimensionality. This is what most people do not consider. They are able to be here and not be here at the same time. I hope this clarifies some key points as to the behavioral aspects of their physical structure. Oh, and maybe most importantly is the fact that they gather the bones of their dead and take them to caves covered in geologic time never to be found until one day they are. I have heard tell of a intact skull being housed as a relic high in a mountain monastery in Tibet. It is treated and cared for with great reverence and honored as it would any enlightened being.
Love zombies!!!! I don’t think a Bigfoot would stand a chance against one – in a board game or the apocalypse. Sorry 🙂
well we heard knocking in the woods in broad daylight one day… made a believer out of me… yep, sure did…
I’m p-r-e-t-t-y sure Big Foot lives in the hills just east of my house
Thanks to all who got their Zombie/Squatch on for the contest. Our random roll-o’-the-dice winners are Emily, from Martinsville, IN, whose favorite indie is The Book Corner, in Bloomington and Willy, from Eugene, OR, who wants to plug Tsunami Books, local talent Peter Brown Hoffmeister (“Graphic the Valley,” etc.) and kindly thanks NWBL “for all of their efforts to connect the reader to the writer.” —NWBL
Just had a student ask if we had anything about cryptozoology.
My youngest daughter looked like a zombie hand model this weekend after an unfortunate treadmill runin! Her response — too bad it was 3 days after Halloween, otherwise she could have really amped things up as Zombie Batgirl!
