We All Died At Breakaway Station

Another doodle I found in a sketchbook. Like all my doodles, this one was executed automatically, with no forethought. Looking at it today reminded me of an obscure science fiction paperback I read in my teens titled “We All Died At Breakaway Station”, written by Richard C. Meredith. It was about a starship manned by a crew of zombies, dead men resurrected by hi-tech to help fight an interstellar war.

    Sweet story. I love 60’s/ 70’s pulp Sci-Fi. Cool composition.

    Hey Rick. You won’t believe this, but Guess what book I will be writing the screen adaptation for.

    I’d love to chat sometime. And be sure to look up the Richard C. Meredith Page on Facebook.

    Not zombies. Please, that is a disservice to this really excellent piece of work. The soldiers and crewmen of the Rudoph Cragstone and its combat escort element were all rescued at the edge of death, put into cold sleep for the voyage home and to the regeneration facilities located there. Cyborgs, machine-men, Bio-automatons – NOT zombies.
