    The "Freehold Universe series" by Michael Z Williamson. I'm reading by order of release and six books in the timeline seems consistent...
    Depends on what happens to Chelsea in book 6.

    Just finished "reading" Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton. It's a post-apocalyptic (zombie) novel told from the perspective of a crow (Shit Turd or S. T.) raised from the egg by a redneck electrician in Seattle. This is a really funny homage to the natural world of the Pacific Northwest and a scenic tour of Seattle, as S. T. first tries to save his Mofo (what he calls humans) Big Jim and then, after Big Jim tries to eat him, rescue himself and his companion-- the dog Dennis. S. T. must learn what it is to be a Crow, and rescue all the other domestic animals trapped inside houses while avoiding being eaten by sick mofos and wild animals.

    Caveats: lots of swear words

    Since I am playing God of War again, I thought I'd finish Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman.

    @Dngrsone did In Enemy Hands have sound effects and a cast of readers?

    While we're all stuck at home I guess it might be time to reread "Contagion", "Outbreak", "12 Monkeys" and "The Andromeda Strain".

    Just a single narrator, but she does decent voices and accents.

    Meanwhile, I'm reading Carbon Black

    I am reading Rhea Kumar's Born to Die.
    It's a story about a teenager who steals for poor people.
    He gets arrested and dies in the prison due to the beatings of the policeman.
    He then is transferred to the place of the dead. I won't tell anymore. :D
    It's a light read.

    Every time I see a photo of Westminster bridge (a favourite of the newspapers and channels here to show how unusually quiet London is) I always think of 28 Days Later...

    I think what we have unfolding globally is life imitating art in all the dystopian post-apocalyptic stores we've been telling each other for the past 50 years.
