Zombie Postcard Fiction: The Horde is Here!

"What about grandma's china?"

"Leave it."

"What about the photo albums?"

"There's no time."

"The cat is hiding."

"Leave her and get in the car!"

Zombie Postcard Fiction: The Lost Bookmarks

Without electricity and internet, we lost all our useful bookmarks.  All those "how to" videos on youtube were suddenly gone.  We don't know anything anymore.

Flash Fiction: Try Again Later

"While the people appear to be dead, we have to presume that they are merely in an altered state of consciousness.  We have to remember that these disease victims are people's fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and children.  If you encounter a victim of this devastating illness, do not approach them, do not hurt them, and call 911 immediately."
--- Atlanta Mayor's announcement to the city in Zombie Complex.



   "Mom, 911 just plays a recording that says all circuits are busy.  Try again later."
   "Don't worry.  The government will take care of it.  They will clear the streets and deliver us some food."
   "What should we do?"
   "Try again later."
   "But, we are hungry now."
   "That's not my fault.  Your school should have brought you lunch."
   "But, we're hungry."
   "Quit bothering me and go entertain your brothers."
   "They're hungry too."
   "Don't make me whip you.  Leave me alone."
   "I guess we'll try again later."

Zombie Cinquain: Sleepless

They scratch
all day and night.
They know we are in here.
The dead can wait for a long time.
Sleepless.

  "Never."
  ''What?"
  "There are no more police mom."

The Long Hiatus for The Walking Dead: When is TWD coming back?

If you're a zombie fan, then The Walking Dead has probably been a big part of your universe for a long time.  But, no long how long you've been watching the show, the breaks between seasons and the mid-season breaks are the worst.  If you are like me, you can't wait for the show to come back on.  This year, the COVID catastrophe has delayed the release of the Season 10 finale until this fall.


When is TWD coming back to television in 2020?


According an article on the British news website, Express, The Walking Dead season 10 finale will air on October 4, 2020.  According to an article on Entertainment Weekly, The Walking Dead:  World Beyond will premiere a week later on October 11, 2020 and will be aired after new episodes of Fear the Walking Dead.  It's great that zombies will be all over our screens in October, but unfortunately, Season 11 of The Walking Dead will be pushed back until 2021.

What do we do while we wait for TWD to come back?

I highly recommend reading zombie books and short stories.

There's plenty to be read on this blog.

Zombie Postcard Fiction: Another wet wipe!

"Before they went dead, the news said they have to bite you to infect."
"But, he drooled on me."
"No bite though?"
"No.  Just hand me another wet wipe."
"We're all out."
