So not long ago, I watched the first season of the new Netflix series Kingdom, a zombie thriller that also happens to be a Korean period piece set at the very end of the 16th century.
This week I’m reading Death Warmed Over, by Kevin J. Anderson:
So this week I’m reading The Girl with All the Gifts, by M.R. Carey, a post-apocalyptic
zombie “hungries” novel in which society has been laid waste by a mutated (possibly weaponized) form of Ophiocordyceps. Perhaps it takes place on the same devastated earth as “The Last of Us” …
So this week I’m reading a zombie (shocker) apocalypse (shocker) novel called Grace Lost, by M. Lauryl Lewis, in which some sort of blue mist from space has coated the world and caused the dead to rise. Or something like that.
So apparently the Walking Dead have constructed an amusement park in Avalon on
Catalina Island — excuse me, “Catrina Island” — in an attempt to draw in more victims. You may want to visit Two Harbors instead.
Here’s what Avalon looks like from a similar angle when it’s not being overrun by the living dead and their ambitious waterfront redevelopment endeavors:
And of course the panoramic view:
From the air, we can sort of get an idea of where the “Catrina Island” ranger station was located:
As for staying on the island or leaving, I’d have gone with staying, at least until Lloyd’s of Avalon runs out of caramel apples. After all, it’s the zombie apocalypse. Once the caramel apples are gone, they’re gone for good. Unlike, say, gasoline, of which there appears to be an unlimited supply.
By the way, did anyone else have a “look at the flowers” flashback in that final scene? Or was it just me?
