If you read parts 1 and 2 already, you know that I’ve been sitting next to my mailbox every day waiting for the next piece of the story to arrive. Okay, not literally, but if I didn’t have other responsibilities and commitments I might actually do it. So far, I haven’t been disappointed by the mail order story service, and part 3 is no different.

This book caught my attention initially because it is by a local author, Trevor Melanson. Terminal City is the first book in a trilogy, and was the first fiction book by the Vancouver journalist.
