Philip A. McClimon is an author who writes in the Science Fiction, Fantasy, Post Apocalyptic, and Dystopian genres.

A veteran of the United States Navy, it was while deployed to Iraq during operation Iraqi Freedom that the long held dream of being a writer reawakened. Studying the mechanics of story and narrative structure, Philip honed his craft. Upon his return to America, he focused primarily on screenplays. He wrote a Western, a science fiction piece, a sword and sorcery script, and two action adventures. Recognizing the opportunity that self-publishing was beginning to offer, he wrote his first novel. Nicole’s Odyssey is a story set in a zombie apocalypse. The first book in the H.E.L.L. (Human Extinction Level Loss) world, it was well r

I touch upon this in chapter three, TICKET TO RIDE. Even as a kid myself, I remember seeing the movie OMEGA MAN, remade as I AM LEGEND with Will Smith. It was one man alone (or so he thought) in a big city after an apocalypse. The attraction for me was the whole city was his oyster. He could go anywhere he wanted, take anything he wanted. We see this kind of thing play out in more recent shows like THE LAST MAN ON EARTH when the main character has all kinds of national treasures hanging on his walls and he is living in the White House. In the third chapter of ROKKETS, the kids are sitting around talking about taking advantage of this, of the places they might go, things they might do. Each one has their own thoughts on the matter. Area 51? For one reason or another, Misty wants to go see Johnny Rokkets who every "sane" person thinks died years ago. For one reason or another, it's decided and then it's destination: Memphis.(less)

The original first and second chapters are now the last two chapters. They form an epilogue under the section "Six months before any of this happened" I moved them because I felt like it was taking too long to intro the main characters of the story. I wanted us to meet the characters and get on with the story faster than we were originally. I liked those first two chapters and so we get a look at them at the end. They tell us the circumstances that brought on the zombie apocalypse in the first place. (less)

IMDb: The Dead Don’t Die

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8695030/ #amwatching #zombies #thedeaddontdie Unapologetically quirky with a subtle deadpan humor that sneaks up on you almost faster than its breaking of the fourth wall. This movie is a mellow zombie flick. Starts off with a very relaxed vibe. Small town pace where you can imagine people chewing gum for fun. Lots of set up…

“Truax had another marshmallow poised to go into his open mouth, but he froze after hearing Dale’s outburst. “I don’t think I like your attitude, Dale. Everyone is addicted to something. Drugs, power, sex. Might as well be to something wholesome, like these little sweet white puffs, made from 100% all natural unicorn poop.” “That’s not where marshmallows come from.” Truax grabbed Dale by the shirt and pulled him against the cell bars. “Yes it is, damn you!” “Okay, okay! Marshmallows are unicorn poop!”

“when the end came and there was initial chaos and rampant starvation, people learned all too well that you could not rely on stuff. You needed friends. A dead phone provided no companionship; an empty house no comfort. The latest fashions provided no food, but you could always eat a close friend.”

“Stand. Stand against this threat. Stand with your heads held high—for you are the true possessors of this world’s future. Stand proud. And I will stand with you. This is our world to rebuild. Not theirs. Ours. So, let’s not fuck it up. - The post-apocalyptic nomadic warrior from a speech given at the gates of Eternal Hope, Colorado, moments before the Massacre of Eternal Hope, Colorado.”
