The idea behind this blog is to share my opinions about Post-Apocalyptic Literature, Films and Ephemera as well as my random nattering on a regular basis.

First. Reblog. Ever.

But worth it. Since I've been so busy with school, I've had no time to look for PA. Luckily I know lots of people who do. One of these is Megaton. He posted this jem about Project Noah. I am, quite fankly, intrigued.


What the hell is Project Noah? May 25th, 2010

OK, I’ll play along; I don’t mind being a tool of a corporate PR machine, at least when what they’re PR’ing actually seems to be pretty cool.

The blog at purports to describe a mysterious viral outbreak spreading across the country, closely followed by reports of literally monstrous attacks on survivors. Evidence pours in in the form of comments on the blog, emails, videos and even newspaper clippings outlining the spreading contagion.

What’s the point? It’s a viral site set up to promote an upcoming novel called The Passage by Justin Cronin. Early reviews are skewing toward “awesome” with the most common comparison being to The Stand.

You might have heard me mention that The Stand is my favorite book of all time, so I’m going to be all over The Passage when it comes out on June 8th.

Here’s one of the items of “evidence” sent in to the site.
