Dead Inside: Do Not Enter

It’s no secret that I’m kiiiinda a big zombie nut. Like, there was a button in front of me that said “PRESS TO INITIATE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!” I would totally press it–even knowing it would lead to my demise. That’s because A) I <3 Zombies and B) One of my favorite aspects of zombie survival horror is the survival component itself. I get this crazy kick out of observing survivors and the course of action they take in order to survive; not to mention I find it fascinating how these people react during the initial phase of an outbreak. Unfortunately, the possibility of a “PRESS TO INTIIATE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE” button appearing in front of me anytime soon is rather slim, so I turn to novels, films, videogames, etc. to get my vicarious thrill.

One of my other favorite ways of getting this “thrill” is through reading documentation (letters, memos, reports, photos, etc.) related to the outbreak. You know those journal entries you can find scattered throughout the Resident Evil games? Brilliant. I love that kind of stuff, but unfortunately it’s not a common (or easy) way of storytelling.

So a few weekends ago I was at a random bookstore when I spotted this little gem titled Dead Inside: Do Not Enter. Now, this attracted me like it was crack and I was a raging crackhead. Before I knew it I was flipping through the pages and…everything…was…documentation. Letters, photos, warning signs, fliers…they…it…OH MY GOD.

It was seriously like the clouds had parted and a ray of sunshine beamed down on my zombie-obsessed life.

Here are just a few photos of what’s inside:

 

Yeah, it’s pretty awesome. These specific documents stem from the beginning of the outbreak (believed to be a weird strain of flu) and as you can guess, it doesn’t end up blowing over as everyone would have hoped!

So, from one zombie fanatic to another, I would highly suggest that you check this bad boy out. It’s a unique twist on the genre, and it’ll make you very happy in the pants.

At least it made me happy in the pants…

    Definitely going to check it out, is it just bunch a different letters and pictures from different survivors?

    • Britt

      You should! Yep! The story is told through documents from different survivors.

    I heart you because you heart zombies. I’m also sad inside because I know you won’t survive long enough for me to rescue you. Not that I would try because let’s face it… you’d only slow me down. But if it’s any consolation I’d put one in your brain if you were infected and tried to eat my arm and or leg.

    Sincerely,
    Everyone That Survived.

      WHOA WHOA! You don’t think I’d survive long enough for you to rescue me? Sweetheart, you wouldn’t survive long enough to rescue yourself.

      ;D <333

      • Weebo

        You’re probably 9% right about that. I’d survive long enough to blog about it though. But I can do that from my phone… while running…

    Weebo, who says Britt wouldn’t out last you?

    • Weebo

      The Costco plan tells me this.

    Britt if the “Start zombie apocalypse” button did exist you on list of people they would be sure to keep it out of hands of. I can only talk so much, I would press the button too.

    It seems a little bit like World War Z, different survivor’s stories adding up into one larger story. But what a cool twist. Definitely have to make a pilgrimage to my local book store now

    • Britt

      Hey! Whaddya sayin, they can’t trust me with the button?

      You’re right, though, they couldn’t!

  • Alex

    Oooh, thank you Britt. Now I know what to get myself for my birthday today.

    P.S. your not the only one fortifying Costco

    • Britt

      COSTCO FTW! See ya there Alex! 😉

    OOOHHHH, ZOMBIES!

    I thought this was a book about my romantic life… 😛

    We need to have a chat about zombie books. I’m reading The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor right now. It’s not the best writing so far, but gives super cool insight into the Walking Dead comics. Have you read Zombie Haiku (I think that’s what it’s called). Its a series of Haikus about a zombie apocalypse!

    • Boots_33

      *waves at fawksy*

      I can write haikus.
      Most of them are pretty good.
      This is one of them.
