Junkie Bob on location for CONTAGIOUSAnd in the "holy crap is that awesome" category, I give you Junkie Bob. If you finished CONTAGIOUS, you know what this location is all about. If you didn't finish it, get going! Bob, you fucking rock. Click on the photo to see a bigger version. Bob said he "froze his nuts off" for this photo -- don't know if that was literal, or some kind of Perry Dawsey joke.

    I'm half way through and it kicks serious 'Crawler' Ass so far,... the FDO rocks and power to a healthy EQ.

    Oh My God

    FDO, to me this is by far your best work. I was a HUGE fan of earthcore and ancestor, but this easily surpasses both of them for my #1 book of yours! I really wanted to listen to the podcasts without reading the book... but I couldn't wait. I'm so happy I didn't!

    I do have one major question that I won't share here, but I'm totally confused on something.

    Keep it up, remember I got your first beer in Chicago!

    So, do I read it, or listen to the podcast

    I love the podcast, however I'm afraid the 'beans' will get spilled if I don't just read the damn thing... oh what to do.

    cruising thru it now

    Dew vs Perry, tell me we didn't see that one coming? Hmmm, the Jewell family, Perry's family jewels, do we have a pattern here????? And yes, I am partial to a M1911 .45 myself. Nice weapon, but I like the match grade better..... Also, FDO, we need to have a talk about "stealth Submarines". Boomers don't go "sit on the bottom" somewhere. Makes then too easy to detect. Boomers have an assigned patrol box of several thousand square miles. They then move around in that box at a VERY slow speed. (Think 1-2 MPH). They trail a cable of ... miles length behind them to allow for receiving certain types of radio signals. On a clear disk, you can seek forever.

    I've never seen that

    I've never seen that building, but that's pretty damn close to how I pictured it when I read the book. Your descriptions were accurate.
    On Edited

    Was kind of a figure of speech

    Technically not "sitting on the bottom," more of a figure of speech to denote a sub staying in one area. 1-2 MPH is pretty dang slow!

    I just died!

    I am introduced on Page 236, killed on page 239, and confirmed dead on the bottom of page 240.  Mentioned again on page 245.  Still reading/savoring.

    Thanks FDO, you did honor my one request for method of death in the book.  I was NOT killed by a drunken Santa Claus with a machine gun.  (I did that on a radio show once).

    Found a typo in the book.

    Obviously put into the book to embaress the FDO by some random typesetter, and missed by the proof readers. In the chapter where you introduce the abilities of the advanced fighter, you mention that it can take on a batch of M16s for breakfast - that should be F16s. An M16 is a rifle, the F16 is a fighter. Again, it is obvious that some typesetter screwed up. It's so hard to get good help these days. I have finished the book, amazing, awesome, great, and that is without including the fact that you killed me in the book! One question, Who gets to play me in the movie?

    I'm hoping my pic gets me

    I'm hoping my pic gets me enough FDO credit to get me killed in maybe "The CRYPT"

     

    Getting ready for the second Contagiuos run-thru read this weekend.

    Infected

    Richiedog,

    I just finished "Infected" and was simply horrified and so were my other personalities. Of course, I went to Chapters and paid 28 dollars for "Contagious" and I had to buy several copies for my other personalities, because they were horrified as well. My wife informed me that if I wake up screaming, "Kill the triangles, kill the triangles", she's hiding all the sharp objects. When you find a good read you always want to tell the author what a great book they wrote. I thought since I'd read "Heart Shaped Box" by Joe Hill I would never find anything as scary. You proved that wrong. Oh! What a great book you wrote, Scott.

    I tried to read with the podcast

    I just couldn't stop myself. Loved the ending and thank you for not leaving a huge cliff hanger. If you ever want to drop the F from FDO you should offer to take your junkies fishing. You can't buy that kind of loyalty! Where's your Chicken Scissors?

    Wow Scott, more often than not sequel's .....

    aren't as good as the original book.  However, Contagious, in my opinion, knocked the socks off of Infected and that's hard to do.  I love this book and yes, I had to read it completely before someone ruined it at the book signing!!!!
