Post-Apocalypse Dead Letter Office

Dead Inside: Do Not Enter: Notes from the Zombie Apocalypse
3.72

Deadline (Newsflesh Trilogy, #2)

The People of Sparks

Fed (Newsflesh Trilogy, #1.5)

I feel like I'm more interested in what Atwood isn't giving us in these stories than what she is. I find Stan and Charmaine tedious and, worse, boring ...more
