destinyland writes: Horror author Thomas S. Roche has incorporated Wikileaks into his new zombie novel, which also includes conspiracy forums, forged text messages, and viral YouTube videos. Examining how military violence intersects corporate disinformation, Roche explains that "Wikileaks represents a very important impulse and the start of a strong movement toward anti-corporate sentiment and the demand for government transparency." He moves from discussing fictional zombie-fighting to the brutal real-world military violence in neo-colonial nations around the world, and concludes that our wireless technology-enhanced future may also include the potential for massive global disinformation.
