My current dig *Back issue edition*The Light
- Nathan Edmondson, Brett Weldele
For those of you who haven't heard of Nathan Edmondson, I've got two words for you: I'm sorry. You're missing out on one of the best writers, in my opinion. While I hadn't heard about him until I read Who is Jake Ellis?
(which I highly recommend as well), I recently purchased this book out of his back catalogue. The Light
is a post-apocalyptic book, but not like the books you're used to. There's no zombies. There's no aliens. There's not even a virus. Imagine being afraid of the dark. Now imagine having to be in the dark because the light will kill you. I must admit, I am a fan of the post-apocalyptic genre, so of course this book appealed to me, but it's much more than that. It's a bit The Walking Dead
and a bit social commentary on how connected and wired society is. With Brett Weldele, of Surrogates
fame, putting his gorgeous shine (or grunge rather) on paper and Edmondson's fast-paced story, this The Light
is a no brainer for any indie fan.
