Flash Fiction – No Exit

This was inspired by the latest Chuck Wendig writing challenge, but those stories were supposed to be horror, and this deviates from that. It’s just me being silly with the idea of a disease caused apocalypse … and the disease is pretty underwhelming. (If the title doesn’t make sense to you, Google Jean-Paul Sartre.) ** No Exit We knew the disease had reached our shores when the news anchor on channel five just gave up, mid human interest story. He was talking about an otter that had befriended a goat, when he suddenly glared at the teleprompter like it was insulting his mother, and slumped back in his chair. “Whatever, I don’t fucking care anymore,” he said, as the adorable footage played on in a small square to the left of his well...

Infected: Prey & Infected: Bloodlines relaunch today!

And on the occasion of the relaunch of the Infected series, I thought I’d write a little something about it. But when I sat down to do it, I realized I wasn’t sure what I was going to say. What is there to say? The Infected series has been a part of my life for longer than the books have been published, and it’s a place I like to be. It’s like our own universe, except not quite. Things are a little different. Namely, there’s a cat virus, but also, on a very minor level, I’ve altered Seattle’s geography a little. (There are some streets that don’t exist in actual Seattle, and some genuinely existing streets that lead to other places – this is called the whims of an author with a very bad sense of direction, who just likes to monkey around with...
