I just lost almost 2 hours to reading this:

Monster Island

Its a novel, serialized in blog form. MI is a zombie story, set months after Manhattan has been overrun. But like the best of the genre, there’s characterization instead of merely mindless gore. And even better, author David Wellington is a rather creative guy. There’s a number of twists and turns I never saw coming, but in retrospect make a bunch of sense.

Monster Island is first in a trilogy, too. Books 1 and 2 are complete and on the site, and 3 is in progress. I’m hoping to catch up before it finishes. Novel via blog is a very interesting way to publish your work; I haven’t run across it before.

My only wish is that there were an easily downloadable format. I’d love to load this onto my ebook reader and take it somewhere more comfortable. There’s an iPod-formatted version of book 2, but nothing of 1.
