Three survivors and a bunch of zombies try to make sense of the zombie apocalypse. Failed student of Babylonian Ur-Legends and Languages, Dingo Janssen, appreciates how the apocalypse removes most opportunities for him to confront his greatest fear, human contact. Overly ambitious investment banker, Tanisha Chaudhary, resents how the apocalypse gets in the way of her career while Your Friendly Island Plumber, Dixon Johnson, is just trying to make the best of a bad situation. But can Dixon actually find anything to cheer him up in the midst of the apocalypse, can Tanisha channel her destructive rage into a useful activity such as zombie-bashing, and is Dingo really as safe from human contact as he thinks he is? A short story about the end of the end of the world and how things are not always as bad as they seem, but sometimes they’re much, much worse.
