Mutation Spans Dungeons & Ages

This entry was posted Monday, October 13, 2008 and was the second installment in the 2008 Halloween themed Word of the Week series.

The second installment of the 2008 Halloween themed Word of the Week is here and it’s a dandy. This week’s word reminds us of so many freakish creatures that haunt our dreams and the waking world during this season. It is a concept rife with dread, the mutation of a cell that results in a zombie apocalypse or the stark change in a man whose experiments have run afoul and created a Jekyll and Hyde divide.

mutation [myu-ta-shen]noun: change, an inherited physical or biochemical change in genetic material; the process of producing a mutation, an individual strain, or trait resulting from mutation.
