R y Julie

by Isaac Marion

«Me llevo una mano al pecho, sobre el corazón. Mi "corazón". ¿Todavía representa algo ese penoso órgano? Permanece inmóvil, sin bombear sangre, sin la más mínima utilidad, y sin embargo mis emociones todavía parecen originarse entre sus frías paredes. ¿Qué me pasa? ¿Me lo estoy imaginando todo? ¿Es un placebo? ¿Una ilusión optimista? En cualquier caso, siento que el encefalograma de mi vida se altera, formando montañas y valles con los latidos de mi corazón.» R es algo peculiar. Intenta pasárselo bien, pero es demasiado sensible y a veces se entristece. Tampoco ayuda que esté muerto, o casi muerto. Se pasa los días vagando por el aeropuerto abandonado donde vive sin saber muy bien qué sentido tiene su existencia. Hasta que conoce a Julie. R y Julie, un guiño moderno al clásico de Shakespeare Romeo y Julieta, es una historia de amor que esconde una fábula acerca de cómo vivimos dormidos, en estado catatónico, hasta que el amor irrumpe en nuestras vidas.

Warm Bodies

by Isaac Marion

R is a young man with an existential crisis--he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, noidentity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.After experiencing a teenage boy's memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and stragely sweet relationship with the victim's human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world. Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.
