I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

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

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!
