Titanic of the Dead
Written just two short months after the sinking of the TITANIC, this hauntingly immediate zombie apocalypse account opens with RMS Titanic survivor Lawrence Beesley's story of arriving in New York and telling his tale. Titanic of the Dead represents Beesley's attempt to expose the conspiracy of events that led to the sinking of the Titanic and set the record straight.
My goal is to challenge the reader to Accept Uncertainty.
What does an authenic Titanic survivors journal, a zombie apocalypse cover-up and severe obsessive compulsive disorder have in common? My book.
For me I have always had that fear of uncertainty specifically talking about OCD but I think its a natural thing too. we like patterns and we are creatures of habit and when something falls outside of that it upsets us and we don’t deal with change very well. So for me I really was the main character and I took him and as he was observing and talking about The Titanic I was putting myself in his shoes and seeing what I would do for me if I’m sitting in a boat and it has been clearly defined that if these things bite you, bleed on you or scratch you they can become infected. the thought terrifies me, so I attempt to scare you with my observations.
Titanic represents the fear of impending doom, or anxiexty. We know whats going to happen and we have to sit still and endure it anyways.
Zombies are so deep, they represent many things to me.
I hope you enjoy my book - Steve Dymarcik
