My son who is senior at SUNY Albany sent and who, like his father, is fan of fiction having to do with the living dead, sent me some excerpts from a new science fiction book about zombies, called “World War Z.” The author is Max Brooks.
I haven’t read it yet, but apparently the plot includes a desperate battle against an army of ghouls in Yonkers. This will certainly go over big with the city’s chamber of commerce.
Page 93: “That how I first saw Yonkers, this little, depressed, nut-collar burb just north of New York City. I don’t think anybody ever heard of it. I sure as hell hadn’t, and now its up there with, like Pearl Harobr…no, not Pearl…that was a surprise attack. This was more like Little Bigh Horn…”
This is great stuff. Zombies! What an image builder. I wonder how they feel about the Ridge Hill development project?
Page 104: “Yonkers was supposed to be the day we restored confidence to the American people, intstead we practically told them to kiss their ass goodbye.”
Ain’t it the truth. And here we thought the zombies were confined to City Hall.
