About The Author

Mira Grant

Mira Grant was born and raised in Northern California, where she has made a lifelong study of horror movies, horrible viruses, and the inevitable threat of the living dead. In college, she was voted Most Likely to Summon Something Horrible in the Cornfield, and was a founding member of the Horror Movie Sleep-Away Survival Camp, where her record for time survived in the “Swamp Cannibals” scenario remains unchallenged.

Currently, Mira lives in a crumbling farmhouse with an assortment of cats, horror movies, comics, and books about horrible diseases. When not writing, she splits her time between travel, auditing college virology courses, and watching more horror movies than is strictly good for you. Favorite vacation spots include Seattle, London, and a large haunted corn maze just outside of Huntsville, Alabama.

In her guise as mild-mannered urban fantasy author Seanan McGuire, Mira was the recipient of the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. Both Feed and Deadline have been nominated for Hugo Awards, as has “Countdown,” the first novella in the Newsflesh universe. The newest Mira Grant novel, called Parasite, has been published on October 29, 2013. It is the first volume of the series entitled Parasitology.

Damn, this book was insane! I need a whole constellation lined up to rate it properly, because only 5 stars doesn’t seem to make it justice.. I loved every single word of it. “I guess in the end, it doesn’t matter what we wanted. What matters is what we chose to do with the things we had.” Deadline is one …

Book #1 in Newsflesh Series

I am used by now to read books that are great in the beginning, ok by the middle, and surprise the hell out of me all through the ending. Feed is that kind of book and even more. I loved how it started (with such a great adventure), and I loved that feeling I got through the story, like …
