I have to agree with Tina from Bob’s Burgers.
I have been working on my chapter about zombies, which will be the last chapter of my book. I thought I had finished the section about zombies and fears of global health pandemics but then the last two episodes of The Walking Dead happened.
Wow! Talk about adding even more trauma into the mix! Adding another virus that makes people bleed from the eyes and kills almost immediately is a great twist. Executive producer and director of the series George Nicotero said on Talking Dead that they were inspired by the 1918 flu epidemic. This epidemic was truly frightening. It killed 50 to 100 million people and many were healthy young adults: http://virus.stanford.edu/uda/.
Guess it is time to revise that section again.
