WikiLeaks: the Novel?

The Panama LaughAuthor Thomas S. Roche has written a new zombie novel which incorporates WikiLeaks, conspiracy forums, and viral YouTube videos, studying the new wasteland where military violence intersects corporate disinformation.

“I think WikiLeaks represents a very important impulse and the start of a strong movement toward anti-corporate sentiment and the demand for government transparency,” he explains in this new interview, “As ineffectual as that movement may end up being – because it started so late in the process of corporate control being consolidated…”

He moves from discussing fictional zombie-fighting to the brutal real-world military violence in neo-colonial nations around the world. And he ultimately wonders if our wireless technology-enhanced future will also include the potential for massive global disinformation.

    Hi: This is Dave Marks, Editor of Blog of the Living Dead (www.blogofthelivingdead.com).
    We would be interested in obtaining a review copy of this novel.  We do many reviews of zombie literature (as well as zombie culture in General).
    You might be interested in our coverage of Wikileaks and Zombies (and Dugway Proving Grounds).
