Zombies return to Henderson County

“Patients, suffering from an advanced and aggressive form of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, were released into the general population after an incident at a medical treatment facility outside of Washington, D.C.

The Centers for Disease Control and U.S. military officials have confirmed that the infection could reach Henderson County as early as November. Quarantine zones and secured evacuations routes to containment areas for the non-infected population are currently being prepared in areas where outbreak is considered an imminent threat.

Camp Ton-A-Wandah will serve as the containment zone for Henderson County. A voluntary evacuation will begin Sunday, Nov. 3 at 2 p.m.

As Henderson County prepares a response to the crisis, citizens wait to evacuate. Site coordinator Bob Williford strongly suggests citizens leave their homes on Nov. 3…..”

Can you Hack the Zombie Apoc

Zombies chased Justin Riddle for three miles on Casper Mountain a year ago. His torn shirt was smeared in blood, tie flapping as he ran.

“My story was, I was on my way to a job interview when a zombie apocalypse happened and I got hurt,” Riddle said.

It was just a costume, but the second Casper Zombie 5K Run could help prepare someone for a real zombie apocalypse, he said.

It had the elements: zombies in your path, having to escape, and feeling like it would never end.

He dodged slow zombies, ran from fast zombies and jumped over a zombie.

The event returns to Casper Mountain this Saturday, Sept. 7, to benefit Joshua’s Storehouse. There’s an improved obstacle course this year and a party at the end.

Some runners might be savvier from last year’s race, but so are the zombies ..

Virginia Tech to track ‘zombie virus’ at Boy Scout Jamboree

” If researchers from Virginia Tech’s Virginia Bioinformatics Institute have their way, 50,000 Boy Scouts might just turn into zombies as part of an educational game called “Virus Tracker” during the national Boy Scout Jamboree from July 16 to July 22 at Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia.

Virus Tracker was developed by researchers at the Network Dynamics and Simulation Science Laboratory to help people understand the spread of disease and the public health response required for disease outbreaks. The data collected by playing Virus Tracker can be used to understand how social contact networks are pathways for transmission of infectious diseases.

Designed to show how disease spreads, Virus Tracker allows participants to use scannable bar codes to “infect” other players. They’ll get points for infecting one another, but they will also strive to become and stay human…”

(Unfortunately, looking at the charts, infection seems to be inevitable in a zombie outbreak)

Description:

WELCOME TO THE END OF THE WORLD!

Disease-K has decimated the world leaving its victims shambling homicidal maniacs. And nestled along the warm Gulf waters sits Gulf Shores…the last outpost of civilization. With looters and thieves preying on the shocked survivors, it’s up to the retirees and bank tellers, phone repairmen and charter-boat captains to put the town back together.

THE SHADOWS ARE GATHERING OUTSIDE OF TOWN!

There, in the sands and marshes of the Gulf of Mexico, the citizens of Gulf Shores along with scattered military units, a downed Air Force pilot, and a lone Coast Guard cutter form the last line of defense against the amassing horde of the infected marching its way toward the sea destroying what is left of humanity along the way.
As summer gives way to the fall and the cold winds blow off the sea, Gulf Shores draws the line and prepares to make the…THE LAST STAND ON ZOMBIE ISLAND!

The Reviews are Great:

….”So you think the imminent zombieclypse will be fun and games? Maybe if you’re dealing with slow shamblers, mister, but not in the scenario envisioned in this rip roaring tale. With a well-explained and plausible sounding explanation for the undead and a lot of attention to detail, it becomes very obvious how completely outclassed survivors would be.”

……”Last Stand on Zombie Island was good to the last drop…of flesh and blood, that is! Very captivating and entertaining throughout with interesting, relatable characters that will keep you intrigued. The zombies themselves are more amped and determined that your standard shambling zombie and will have you on the edge of your seat. Two thumbs up, 5 stars, a real page turner! “

….”The description of this novel as being based “upon totally ordinary people” is 100% TRUE. In all the Z stories I have read (lots), I have never before read a story which SO CAPTIVATED ME without the presence of A SINGLE “PURELY HEROIC…LARGER THAN LIFE” personality. There are multiple possible explanations

….I should warn that the “infected” are NOT Romero Zs: They’re faster, they actively seek out and destroy any element of civilization, they are sick, sexual predators, and they kill in new ways.

….I was frustrated THAT I COULD NOT SPEND ALL MY TIME READING IT! I was captivated to the end. This was a case of a “whole greater than the sum of its parts”. I cannot explain more without revealing spoilers. This is a surprisingly RIVETING STORY–BE WARNED!”

Also available as a Trade Paperback and Hardcover from Necro Publications.

If you buy a paperback or hardcover and send it to me I will sign it and send it back to you for free….!

Enjoy, and get your shamble on!

Zombie Hold Ups in Philly

Christine Speer Lejeune of the Philly Post has a great article entitled “Where to Hide When Zombies Invade Philly: Where would you camp out?”

“I’ve begun seeing the city through different eyes: Homes I once coveted for their floor-to-ceiling windows don’t look so awesome anymore. Same with my own sweet little apartment—too many doors. The Free Library has too many entrances; same, alas, with Ikea, which would otherwise be perfect. But that second-floor Superfresh in No Libs? That’s genius. We could stay there for months. This is how I take in architecture now: How zombie-friendly is it? Eastern State Penitentiary has a whole new appeal as a long-term residence. Same with the Moshulu…..”

Good stuff….

A new Zombie First Responder Course

What would you do in the event of a zombie apocalypse? Have you ever wondered how you would navigate a band of lone survivors in an earth populated by six billion flesh-eating creatures ravenous for your squishy brains?

For those who have not fully considered these quandaries, a group in Portland, Oregon is offering an intensive two-day curriculum to prepare the unprepared.

Viewers of the recent slew of zombie films, such as Dawn Of The Dead, Curse Of The Zombie and Shaun Of The Dead might of course think they already know of course (you use a cricket bat, right?).

But for the rest of us help is at hand as the Daily Mail Reports. .

Courses cover stealth, how to re-murder a zombie with a samurai sword and the ideal camouflage

New zombie course helps students learn about survival behavior

From Michigan State http://news.msu.edu/story/10412/

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Coming soon, zombies will be invading Michigan State University.

The School of Social Work is offering a one-of-a-kind online course called “Surviving the Coming Zombie Apocalypse – Catastrophes and Human Behavior” that will do a lot more than teach students how to fend off the undead.

Starting May 14 – the first session of the summer 2012 semester – students enrolled in the seven-week course will learn how human behavior and nature change after catastrophic incidences – from the historical to the hypothetical – through a blend of traditional coursework, online forums and a catastrophic event simulation, which will be in the form of a theoretical zombie pandemic.

Aspects of anthropology, sociology and geology, among other disciplines, will be woven into the two-credit course, which will be scored on a traditional 4.0 scale.

“We are using the idea of a zombie apocalypse to attract attention to the important research and science on the topic of ‘Catastrophes and Human Behavior,'” said Glenn Stutzky, social work instructor and creator of the course. “Students will learn about the nature, scope and impact of catastrophic events on individuals, families, societies, civilizations and the Earth itself.”

During the simulation, which is the focus of the first week of class, students will be placed in survivor groups and tasked to work with each other to develop ways to survive the zombie pandemic. As the course continues, so will the simulation, but students also will learn about catastrophes like the Black Death and meteor strikes, and the impact these events had on the planet. During the final days of the course, students in their survivor groups will use what they learned and will face the conclusion of the simulation event.

“Though the topic is serious and worthy of academic study, the challenges presented in surviving a hypothetical zombie pandemic have real-world applications,” Stutzky said. “After all, zombies make everything more interesting.”

Stutzky and a team from Virtual University Design and Technology are using social media to promote the course, including the use of a YouTube channel, Facebook and Twitter.

The course is part of a new venture called Summer Online Electives Initiative in Social Work. It is made up of nine courses meant to appeal to a broader pool of students, as well as provide more accessibility to social work courses for both current MSU students, guest students from other universities and members of the general public.
