I was talking about Stephen King the today with a Jonathon Narvey. He noted that I had read Cell and he mentioned that he had enjoyed it as well. He has been thinking about zombies of late because he is putting together his next writing project and it may or may not feature a zombie infection. I won’t say anything else about it as he is in the very beginning of planning it out -- but I will say it fanned the flames of a small idea about zombies and exhaustion I had lurking about in my head.
Have you ever heard the phrase: “I am dead tired?”
(I mean, aside from the scene in the action movie Commando where the central character asks an airline stewardess not to disturb his friend because he was “dead tired”. He had just killed the man by breaking his neck and was planning his escape from the commercial airliner.)
