A first person account of the zombie apocalypse, from beginning to end. Jack is rescued by Army patrol and taken by ship to an island off Indonesia to rebuild the human race. That effort involves dangerous military forays, including an assault on an oil tanker infested with the dead, and a long train journey up the Asian continent. Jack, whose life before the fall had been aimless, tries for the first time to make a difference, working with Sergeant Weiss, who leads the missions; Lt. Hoch, a by-the-books army officer; Dr. Dannon, who has some unusual ideas on how to rebuild the human race; Marcie, a pretty, pregnant woman who gets close to Jack; and The Colonel, a near-retirement career military man thrown into the role of leader. Part military novel, part adventure story, part horror tale, As Dead As Me follows a group of desperate men and women who try to be strong enough, organized enough, and brave enough to take back the world. If they don’t succeed, mankind is extinct.
