Notes on James A. Brakken’s“The Zombie Apocalypse” series:
Following several gruesome 2012 murders in several U.S. cities where the suspects ate parts of the remains, Google® announced “zombie apocalypse” was their most-searched term in June. The author chose to begin a series of short stories designed to explain how a pandemic with attributes similar to zombie behavior could, in fact, happen. The theory is based on modern day, medical research in nano-robotics already successfully administrated into patients’ bloodstreams. The benefits of nano-biotics are clear. Risks, however, often accompany great scientific discoveries. The author prays the hypothesis suggested in his series will always remain fictitious. Future chapters of Brakken’s “Zombie Apocalypse” series will be offered through BadgerValley.com along with other writings.
