It was a phone call with my girlfriend Margaret and an episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead (pick any one) that set Drew on his journey. “I’m going to write a Zombie book,” I announced as we said goodnight (sure you will, she was probably thinking). Setting the phone down, I opened my laptop and stared at the stark whiteness of a fresh Microsoft Word document. My motivation wasn’t any particular episode of that miniseries but the culmination of all the genre books, movies, and TV shows that I had enjoyed since I was a kid. I remember looking forward to a local access show that came on every Saturday, Commander USA’s Groovy Movies. It came on after cartoons. What you got was a pair of the worst horror thrillers produced, hosted by a middle aged dad in a superhero outfit that did magic tricks during commercial breaks. I couldn’t get enough and just like my love of candy has never changed, neither has my interest in creepy stories. That being said, I set out to do something a little different in a new environment. I wanted to freshen up the genre with a tale of a disrupted solo-circumnavigation attempt. At first, I tried to guide Drew but ultimately he was the one that took me on a trip. For that I am in his debt. My hope is that you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. Thank you.
