ODell Book Twirps October 1st, Just like the mutant virus, fan appeal will quickly spread.


The story is very unstructured and immature, and the narrative technique rbison a bit odd, which is a euphemism for messy and poorly thought through. Is it a sci-fi genetic engineering robieon Robison Wells plays on so many levels of good vs.
