If curiosity killed the cat, Benjamin Hu could solve the crime…
But Benjamin’s latest mystery has nothing to do with feline assassins. With the aid of his bodyguard-slash-cook Clayton and special computational agent Dr. Fang Mei, Benjamin pursues a cult with nefarious plans of a mathemagical nature. The Red Lands Cult has gotten their hands on a Methuselah Equation, and anything with his name on it ultimately equals no good.
If Benjamin doesn’t unravel their plans in time, they will bring to life an ancient enemy with the power to destroy the world. In order to bring the evildoers to justice, equations must be solved, villains dueled, and questionable meals consumed.
Never fear! Benjamin Hu is on the case.
The Multifarious Walking Dead in the 21st Century
Since the early 2000s, popular culture has experienced a "Zombie Renaissance," beginning in film and expanding into books, television, video games, theatre productions, phone apps, collectibles and toys.
Zombies have become allegorical figures embodying cultural anxieties, but they also serve as models for concepts in economics, political theory, neuroscience, psychology, computer science and astronomy. They are powerful, multifarious metaphors representing fears of contagion and doom but also isolation and abandonment, as well as troubling aspects of human cruelty, public spectacle and abusive relationships.
This critical examination of the 21st-century zombie phenomenon explores how and why the public imagination has been overrun by the undead horde.
