I did not realize until I read this GREAT book that I have had a close encounter with a zombie maker! For real!
It was a hair worm and it was swimming in Lower St. Regis Lake at Paul Smith's College. I knew when I saw it that it was one one of the creepiest, most sinister things that I had EVER seen. Little did I realize that the creature had already invaded a cricket's body, slowly devoured it's organs, taken over it's mind, and made it throw itself into the lake! Incredible!
And, if that wasn't enough to completely blow my mind, I also learned that 1/4 of adults and teens in the USA are already infected with a dastardly zombie maker that is just waiting for a chance to someday take over my brain............
