Our journalist Ella Rhodes's article on making a difference in the zombie apocalypse (p.20) is a novel route in to the questions psychologists ask and how they ask them... and also simply a bit of Halloween fun. But fortuitously it has also ended up prefacing a collection on identity. In Wade Davis's 1988 book Passage of Darkness, he writes that the 'victim of zombiï¬cation suffers a fate worse than death- the loss of individual freedom implied by enslavement, and the sacriï¬ce of individual identity and autonomy implied by the loss of the ti bon ange' (considered to be 'one's aura, and the source of all personality, character and willpower').
What is our identity, as a magazine? Unrelenting, with an insatiable appetite, progressing with most devastating impact as part of a horde. We are stufï¬ng these print editions with braaaains, but on our website you'll ï¬nd many more (with exclusives, extras and extracts) who have joined our steady, stumbling, onward march.
Like a zombie then, but in a good way.
