Hey everyone! Life is good and busy for everyone involved. The first story is almost done and then the housemates get on with their lives, attending class or in some notable cases ... maybe not. Enjoy!

Dave's pick this week is the novel Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer. It's a weird future Southern gothic novel of exploration in the reclaimed wilderness of the American south. It's just been turned into a film adaptation and I wanted to read the novel before seeing the movie. It is unusual and yet gripping. Check it out!
