Fire and ice

It is not just the undead we must contend with. There are wolves among us, as well. These beasts in human form will devour the weak in a desperate attempt to satisfy the gnawing hunger within.

Desire forces these creatures to act. They want power and will do anything to get it. No sacrifice is too great to fulfill their wicked agenda.

If zombies are ice, then wolves would be fire. They sink their teeth into whatever they wish to have. To give in, is to be consumed.

To fight them, you must be alert. Note how they hunt, and learn to evade. There are too many to destroy them all, so keep moving so as not to be overwhelmed.

A wolf may promise you a place in the pack, but understand that your life is forfeit at their whim. Besides, to join them you must become a monster. They have no use for human beings.

Wolves trump zombies because of their desire. It is better to care, but dangerous to want. They will stop at nothing, even if the whole world is engulfed in the conflagration.  


  1. Your best and most impassioned blog ever! My favorite lines were "They have no use for human beings" and "It is dangerous to care, but dangerous to want" because they eloquently articulate the madness of wicked ambition.

    1. Desire can twist a man's soul until what is left is unrecognizable. They will beg, borrow or steal to get what they want. And the monster is not very far away...
