13143326I am not as crazy a zombie fan as seems to be the fad these days, but I did like the idea of a REAL zombie apocalypse story. Tankbread, by Paul Mannering seemed to fall into that category, and being in the under $2 camp, I was all over it…

First person POV is lazy. That’s my opinion, and often I won’t get past the first couple of pages if I see this, though I have been getting better at giving books a try over this snub.

Alien and Aliens remain at the top, as well as the Terminator franchise. Predator, more specifically the novels with Machiko Noguchi, have become newly re-found favorites as well. Newly able to watch Fringe, thanks to the wondrous Amazon Prime, has filled the void of television shows to love since Joss Whedon moved to film. (more…)
