From an early age, I promised myself that if Joe Konrath ever wrote the first part of a YA serial zombie novel with his son and asked me to write the afterword, I would say, “No way, dude. Bite me.”

Finally, that day arrived. And I stared Joe right in the e-mail and said, “Sure!” Because I remembered that he’s my meal ticket. 

So, Joe and 15-year-old Talon Konrath present Grandma?, the action-packed, funny first part of a serial novel. Afterword by me. 99 cents.

Treadmill Flicks, Episode 2

My next movie whilst working to keep my svelte figure was Kill List. For the first hour, it’s a British crime flick with a nice dose of dark humor. For the last half-hour, it’s still British, but…well, I’m not going to spoil anything, but if you say “I knew exactly where that film was headed!” you’re a damned dirty liar.

I have to admit that my reaction was less “I admire the way this film has subverted my expectations!” than “WTF?” but still, I recommend it. 3.5 stars out of 5 on Netflix. (Which, incidentally, is what Netflix SAID I’d rate it. Netflix is creepy.)

I also watched Safety Not Guaranteed, though not while on the treadmill. An absolutely wonderful movie.

I’m halfway through my next treadmill flick: Oldboy, which so far is beyond awesome.
