Dead of Night - Jonathan Maberry

I devised a way for these monsters to suffer. Not just during the execution… but afterward. Long, long afterward.

Can you think of a more fitting punishment for a serial murderer than to be awake and aware in a coffin while his body slowly rots?

-Chapter 49

 

Dr. Volker created a way to punish serial killers, but it didn’t turn out exactly as he thought it would.

Dead of Night

Dead of Night - Jonathan Maberry

He could feel everything. Every. Single. Thing.

He existed within.

Disconnected from control but still connected to every single nerve and sensory organ.

God, he begged, let me die.

But his own voice whispered to him, I’m already dead…

Chapter 16 —

We realize the true horror of being a “zombie” in this world. Your consciousness still exists and you experience everything your body does, with no control to stop or change what happens.

There are two reasons why a writer would end a sentence with the word “stop” written entirely in capital letters STOP.

The Hostile Hospital

The Ersatz Elevator - Lemony Snicket

The book you are holding in your two hands right now — assuming that you are, in fact, holding this book, and that you have only two hands — is one of two books in the world that will show you the difference between the word “nervous” and the word “anxious.” The other book, of course, is the dictionary, and if I were you I would read that book instead.
