The third of McIntosh’s ‘Land of Nod’ series, in which he created a memorable plague that leaves most of the population rigid, immobile, save for the nodding of their heads.
Another strong, nicely observed take on his ‘nodding virus’ setting.
A quite vivid and memorable setting to open (and close) the story – a drive-in movie theater, and heart-breaking but affirming ending.
From a forthcoming novel, ‘Defenders’, which is already optioned by Warner Brothers. It’s a small sequence with an interesting backdrop – people on Earth struggling against an alien invasion.
A very alien presence offer the chance for a returning hometown zero to get some perspective on what we has lost, hasn’t lost, and what he might get back again.
McIntosh comes up trumps with a vividly realised protagonist and a setting.
The second best story featuring a Tesla-powered Frankenstein monster at Chicago’s World’s Fair that I have read in the past couple of months.
