My name is Mike Addison. I’m an astronaut, and I eat brains. Yep, I’m a zombie, and I’m pretty sure that landing shuttle taking off is my crewmates and the woman I love leaving me behind. Unless the creature that’s been stalking us got them first.
This isn’t so bad. I’m a mechanical engineer and cell biologist. All I have to do is work one problem at a time. I can handle this. If the oxygenator breaks down, I’m already dead. If the power and heat go out, I’m already dead. If the water regenerator—you get the idea. The first thing I need to do is figure out how to grow my own supply of brain cells, because potatoes, my friend, are not going to cut it.
