Zombie films, books and television shows have become immensely popular in recent years. Seeing a human stripped of identity and turned into a mindless being is as intriguing as it is terrifying. Author Gooding shows the parallels between these zombies and the tractable masses led by political authorities in his political satire “Organisms” (published by Trafford Publishing).

In “Organisms,” an eccentric grad student gives a California biologist an unknown virus to study. The biologist and his colleague are amazed to discover that this virus can turn ordinary citizens into drones who worship and follow a leader without question. When the government finds out about the biologist’s discovery, they’ll do anything to get their hands on the virus and silence him.

Inspired by “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” and his feelings on the current political state, Gooding, a self-described libertarian, wrote this novel to satire the compliant followers of political organizations.

“The moral of the story is ‘think for yourself,’” Gooding says. “Don’t let your leader think for you. In a free society, people will never all think alike. Only zombies think alike. Cherish your freedom and preserve it.”
