It’s been 120 years since the 50 or so worldships containing the few million survivors of the human species set off after the planet Earth was destroyed by a meteor. On the Worldship Humility, Sam, a 30-year-old Airlock Operative, is bored. Living in space should be exciting and full of adventure, except it isn’t, and he fills his time hacking 3-D movie posters and holographic adverts outside the stores in the retail zone. Petty thief Yasmine Emile Dufont is also from the WS Humility, but she is not bored....

The title of this audiobook says it all. It contains two short, twisted tales. The first story, "Love Sick in the Head", is about Timothy Bridle, who falls in love with his girlfriend's dying mother.... That's when things get really sick and twisted. A sickening love story. The second story, "Feeling the Fear", follows one man's curiosity to discover if he can feel and experiences someone's fear. Things don't turn out to well for him or his poor "subject".

Four different stories of horror, all with deadly outcomes. How would you handle a bullying coworker? Brian did it perfectly! What if a deadly virus left you as the last man standing? What would you do? Would you make a deal with the devil to get everything you wanted? Martin had the chance and took it with horrific consequences. How far would you go for your favorite dish of homemade soup? Jed went that one step further than normal.

It's not every afternoon that an enigmatic, comely blonde named Stilton (like the cheese) walks into the scruffy gin joint where Sammy "Two Toes" Tiffin tends bar. It's love at first sight, but before Sammy can make his move, an air force general named Remy arrives with some urgent business. 'Cause when you need something done, Sammy is the guy to go to; he's got the connections on the street.

Entertaining book, Entertaining narrator! I am a Christopher Moore fan, start to finish. This book takes you back to a much simpler time, a much simpler world. But things get a bit complicated for our new friend Sammy. You should not hesitate for one minute to join Sammy on this roller coaster ride. This is one of will definitely leave you wanting more of Moore!

When an author writes characters that you love to love or love to hate, then you know he/she really has something!

In this episode, my hate got to rear it's head. I felt real anger and sadness at several points. It kept me wanting more to know how it turns out and hoping for the best for by beloved crew.

This is a series that I hope never ends!

If you have listened to the series far enough to be considering the purchase of part 15, then I do not need to convince you how awesome it is, you already know.

This portion, like the rest is captivating and full of the antics of our beloved team. Some new folks come along, and some folks go. To say more will ruin it for you.

Our favorite author has done it once again, three cheers!

A new landscape was formed after the storm, and with it the promise of a new beginning. One race to dominate this land. One race to survive. Words were uttered beneath the Saxon while Howie fought the undead. Words that brought a whole new pressure. To be relentless and unceasing. To charge forward and never give up. To do what it takes to survive. That pressure was building, and it became too much. Howie faltered, losing his mind as they ran through the fog and sought the doctors so desperately needed.

I have fallen in love with these characters like they are family. No... I don't feel as close to most of my family as I do to this lot.

Once again, realistic reactions to surreal situations. I am beginning to think that R.R. has some sort of time machine and has lived this.

Oh wait, I think that is another series....

It's good to see that R.R. Haywood realized that some things will be just as important after the zombies arrive as they are now!

With that being said, another brilliant episode in the Undead series. Part of you wants to hurry up and listen so you can absorb it and get to the next. The other part wants to savor it and make it last.

Just like a cuppa and a nice smoke.

You do not have to have read the Undead series to enjoy this book, it is a stand alone episode with new characters. For those who have listened to the Undead series, this a wonderful addition to the world we already know.

R.R. Haywood is an author who truly knows how to know write character driven novels. It's love at first read.

Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.
