The following is a list of all entries from the Ghost Writing category.

Infected (ooh)

So I’m reading this new book. It’s called Infected, and it’s by someone called Scott Sigler. The blurb goes somewhat like this:

Across America, an mysterious disease is turning ordinary people into raving, paranoid murderers who inflict brutal horrors on strangers, themselves, and even their own families.

The book screams Scott Westerfeld in so many ways. The storyline is so Peeps that it’s scary, but the way it’s written reminds me of The Risen Empire. And while it is a lot more gory (and has way more dirty words) than Scott’s YA books, this is an adult novel, you know. Plus, the author’s name is Scott? Why are they all named Scott?

*Conspiracy theory time*

This is one of the books that Scott ghost-wrote! It’s even got hooptedoodle about trematodes and parasitic wasps, just like Peeps!

Go read it and see

UPDATE: Okay, I just read the end of the book, and I have decided there is no way Scott-la ghost-wrote it, because the ending is really lame, and all of Scott’s books end really well, even if they are sad-making, like the end of Blue Noon and Specials. Especially Specials. WHY OH WHY DID YOU KILL ZANE, SCOTT-LA?
