Ah, well that makes more sense than "Ballasted with Bones of the Dr", which is what was showing on my iTunes. 
Here I was thinking I missed something (like, where was this Doctor in the story??)  :D

and, at least in the beginning, was anyone else thinking RTS?

What's RTS? 

This has been one of my favorites so far.  I liked the view inside the mind of a member of the zombie horde.  The next time I face off against an army of flesh-eating corpses, I'll have a bit more sympathy for them.  And then, of course, I will aim for the head.

I'm assuming Real-Time Strategy.  Warcraft and Starcraft being the suns of that particular universe.

This.

I was imagining some zombie overlord at a computer, highlighting a few zombie guys and clicking elsewhere "do that"  :P

Gotcha, Despite having played and enjoyed RTS games, I wasn't aware of the acronym.  Yup, I can totally see the beginning as an RTS game.  :)  Zombie horde, attack!
