What’s this all About?
“It’s been six long months getting used to that bit, the whole walking dead thing. When it first happened, the world descended into shocked chaos while everyone prepared for the end of the world. But just like that, nothing happened. Instead of banging on boarded doors, they tried to sell vacuums and life insurance. Everyone pretty much did the same thing they’d been doing, only with a stiffer gait.”
Welcome to Agoraphobe’s Lament.
Originally serving as something of an experiment, as well as an exercise in between my more serious works, I started this series as a satirical mockery of the absurdity found in popular topics and established concepts currently littering our medias.
Told in second person, the first season’s content is often graphic and a bit childish, while at times attempting to underhandedly address some serious and mature concerns of the day. The most recurring themes are the extreme, vitriolic partisan dichotomy of our politics, the hypocrisy and idiosyncrasy of the socially passionate, our mindless submission to fallacious social identities and ideology, and zombies.
The story is told in episodes, spanning what I enigmatically consider seasons, with little more impetus than a morbid curiosity of what may lurk around the corner of our agoraphobe’s world. Episodes of the first season were rarely planned, and most went from conception to completion within twenty-four hours. The second season is written a bit differently, with more of a standard story arc, so there is some planning involved there.
I am currently releasing new episodes on a weekly basis. Season two is slated to be released every Monday morning. As of now, I am considering self publishing the complete “series” for Kindle once it’s completed, though this is largely dependent upon its success on this media.

Finally, please read the Important Notice below before starting the series.
Well, that’s about it. So without further ado, kick back, sip whatever poison helps you get down life’s cud, and enjoy the absurd.
