  • ... totally shameless self-promotion: some of my german-speaking forum friends may be interested, that my latest and first novel "berlin requiem" has just been released. if you´re interested what a zombie apocalypse could do to a city like berlin - check it out.
    You´ll find a trailer for the book on:

    The music might sound familiar though...

  • Thanks for the hint! For me it is not promotion, but a most welcome reminder. Micha told me about it in A'burg already and I planned to buy it, but of course forgot that afterwards.

    Now I did buy it and I am halfway through already. Very good story!!! Of course it has blood and gore and removed limbs and such, as you can imagine when reading a zombie novel, but the story has much more! The really interesting part is that about the intrigues and schemes of the politicians and media people involved in handling and trying to control the escalating situation. Some of these people remind me of really existing people, especially that guy called Sentheim is frightening!

    And some names of people in the story sound strangely familiar... ;-)

  • I've finished it now. Excellent apocalyptic story with an interesting and surprising twist towards the end!
    That Sentheim guy is a real *ssh*le, but there is another one who beats him easily in that competition.

    Huthie, are you a George Lucas fan? I spotted the reference! ;-)
