Or maybe anxiety has flooded your emotions since commercialism brought in the onslaught of heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, promptly after Christmas. No matter your “relationship status” on Facebook, Myspace, or in real life—Valentine’s Day will affect us all. So, [...]

Correction: The Glenville State College Science Fiction and Fantasy Guild did not create Humans vs. Zombies, they are just the ones hosting it on campus. It was first created at Goucher College in 2005. And Eric W. Jones is not president of the guild; he is in charge of this game of HvZ. Robert Hensley is the club’s president. The incorrect information appeared in the September 18 edition of The Phoenix. We apologize to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Guild.
