Nod - Adrian Barnes

How to break down what was happening? Some children were sleeping, some weren't. Same for the grownups. The non-Sleepers, child and adult alike, were straightforward in their blossoming psychoses. But there was clearly a difference between the way child and adult Sleepers were handling things.

I, for example, was at least somewhat disturbed by the murder and mayhem I was seeing. And I was more than a little put out by the thought, for example, of Tanya's swelling madness and seemingly inevitable demise. But Zoe didn't appear to notice what was going on. She was young, but not so young that she shouldn't be scared. In fact, her normalcy was starting to freak me out.
