Some things, when combined, are simply destined to be classics – like peanut butter and jelly or Han Solo and Chewbacca. They were just meant to be together.

Now we bring to you the winners of another timeless pairing: the immutable beauty of Japanese poetry and terrifying, brain-munching zombies. What could be better?

Explore the dark side with the three winning zombie haiku poems from the recent ‘Poets of the Apocalypse’ competition brought to you in association with Trista Wilde and Zombie Guide Magazine.

Contest winners receive a zombie prize pack including: 1) a signed copy of the book Fame by Trista Wilde, 2) a signed author’s photo, 3) a zombie movie 10-pack, 4) publication in Zombie Guide Magazine.
