Sunrise on the 14th of June, 2007 shows a devastated Townsville. A pall of smoke hangs over this tropical Australian city - many suburbs burned during the night.
The zombie invasion is ending.
My thoughts are with those people still fighting in the United States.Doubtless there will be many theories about the cause of zombilepsy - as many theories as there are survivors. Maybe not that many theories.
My own theory, unprovable, is that something in space caused the dead to rise. This explains the way the dead rose with the rotation of the Earth.
Is it a natural or artificial cause? Some experimental satellite, or an uncanny asteroid?
Who knows, perhaps it was a combination of many causes.Is it a coincidence that this comet appeared in the sky on midnight the morning of the 13th?
Should we be worried that its orbit will bring it back to Earth in a year's time - on June 13, 2008? Should we, in the line from the old movie "keep watching the skies?".
I'll be posting a roundup of the best coverage from around the world in a few days. Thanks to everyone who's contributed. I hope you'll all consider doing this again next year!
