Title: Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection, Field Notes.
Author: Don Roff (illustrated by Chris Lane).
Genre: Fiction, horror, apocalyptic fiction, zombie fiction, survival fiction, fantasy, science fiction, epistolary fiction.
Publication Date: September, 2009.
Summary: The story, notes and images were those of Dr. Robert Twombly, and were found in a remote cabin in the township of Churchill, Manitoba. The notes detail an individual account of survival and escape after a mass-scale (presumably global) zombie outbreak, referred to as a ‘Necrotic Infection’, beginning around January 7, 2012, and lasting for approximately one year. The purported importance of the journal comes from both Twombly’s artistry and his medical knowledge, which permitted him to document the zombie outbreak with a unique level of detail and candor.
My rating: 7/10.
