“Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”

“Well, for starters, it’s an island. Oahu and especially Honolulu were highly populated when the dead started coming back, and because it’s an island, there would have been no escape from the creatures. It will be very risky to attempt resupply with that many of those things massed in the areas we’ll be operating.”
J.L. Bourne, Shattered Hourglass

“We PT every morning as a group, and some of us are fast. I’m not the hare of the group, but I’m not in the goon squad, either.”

July 2016: It is time. Zombies. (Sorry, Celeste)

We have only narrowed this down to Adult/Horror/Zombie. So, no comedies, no romance, no kids books... this is meant to scare you in to a healthy OCD Fear of human bites. Zombies at their best.
