Massive boulders were rolling fast down the hill, zombies falling before them ... the plan was working. The boulders were wrapped with leather straps covered in 5 inch spikes. You could see the guts flying off the spinning boulders as they crushed and ripped through petrified flesh. But the sheer number of attacking zombies meant that many still would make it to the top, with a deep angry hunger burning inside of them. read more and add to the story...
Max wanted to forget his violent wartime past. He wanted to get a degree, maybe fall in love, start a family and live out his days in peace.
Then the dead rose.

But the dead keep secrets that threaten to destroy everything Max holds dear.
They have found the idea of a zombie apocalypse an effective platform to encourage people to prepare for potential disasters.
The CDC's director, Dr. Ali Khan, has stated, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurri-cane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack."
World Zombie Day
The first World Zombie Day took place October 26, 2008 - the brainchild of The It's Alive Show. Its purpose, besides fun, was to raise awareness of world hunger. (Were they suggesting that brains be used as a food source?)
WorldZombieDay.org states that World Zombie Day is "a day when all fans of zombie culture can join together in an international effort to alleviate world hunger."
Time magazine attributes the introduction of the word 'Zombi' into our popular culture to William Seabrook, in his 1929 novel The Magic Island. Seabrook was a cannibal, who described human meat this way: "It was like good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef." (Wikipedia.org)
So, perhaps when zombies are eating us, they are thinking to themselves: "hmmm... tastes like veal."
