The End... Or is it?
Tonight after work, I'll be playing Dead Reign with my son and his friends. The game is set during a zombie apocalypse. The dead have risen and man kind is holding on my its fingernails in hopes of surviving another day. Why is the genre so popular? Every where you turn you see something about the end, H1N1, global warming, and dirty bombs just to name a few.
In today's spotlight is The Suicide Collectors, the debut novel by David Oppegaard. A strange disease has spread across the globe, the Despair, causing approximately 90% of the world's population to commit suicide. After each death, the mysterious Collectors appear to take the body. After the death of his wife, Norman decides to take a stand against the Collectors and kills the one sent to take his wife's body away. This one act of defiance leads Norman on a cross country adventure to Seattle, the possible home of a rumored cure for the disease.
