Oh, and MOAR?
I don't know what an .rtf file is (I'll google it after I post this) but I copied MJotZY in Word too for anytime reading, that took some time, and am now reading it into MP3 format for my MP3 player to listen to it like an audio book. Talk about taking some time
but I do like listening to Sissy's story while I'm working. And one thing I caught while 'listening' to it this time brought up a question for which I didn't have an answer.
On Page 1, the very first post of the story titled 'Sissy's Journal', third paragraph after she writes 'Zombie' on a single line, Sissy writes:
The few facts that have been confirmed that are being given to the public is that whatever is causing this disease – and I still insist on thinking of it as a disease
which followed the full paragraph just above where Sissy writes:
No matter how much Scott and I have talked about it we still can’t figure out how this nightmare started. There are so many conflicting reports. Stories run the gamut from the disease being a bizarre mutation of a naturally occurring necrotizing bacterium to a biological terrorism event that got out of hand.
The question that came to me: Have we yet found out if this is
a disease? I mean contamination only by fluids seemed to go by the wayside when everyone who died except those very very few who were immune reanimated no matter how they died and even if they had never been around a zombie. Did I miss the explanation in my reading? Has she told us if it is a bizarre mutation of a naturally occurring necrotizing bacterium? I feel relatively certain I didn't miss anything supporting the biological terrorism angle but I don't remember that I have ever read a later consensus on what NRS turns out to be.
Is it there and I missed it? If so can anyone tell me where to find it? Please PM so it isn't a spoiler for new readers. This is a seriously long and deliciously complicated meshing of people, places, events, etc which I absolutely luv about it, and like with The Lord of the Rings
book(s) I'm needing a Mom's Journal of the Zombie Years
companion book with the people, places, events, etc that I can keep referring to.
Oh yes, and Moar Please! Moar Moar Moar!
