I really do want to thank everyone who leaves a comment for their words of encouragement and their ongoing support. I must say that I absolutely love coming home from work on Monday (the time difference makes it so) and seeing all your fantastic comments. It is this more than anything that keeps me inspired to continue with posting this story. That and the fact that zombies in space just seemed like a really cool idea 🙂
