Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Wednesday, September 15, 2021
I found this softcover in this Little Free Library in Nashua NH while dropping off some books of my own. It's a short novel about an unusual type of apocalypse: flies! Anyone who's experienced black-fly season will already be nervous - but these flies are not only biting pests but the carriers of a plague, leading to massive die-offs of people and animals. The protagonists spend time barricaded indoors, on the watch for the slightest indication that a fly has made it inside, and suffering the agonies of watching infected loved ones fade... It's a simple but effective chiller, with a note of hope at the end - though the preview of the sequel suggests that things are far from over.

Side note: the author mentions at the end that there really was an attempt to battle tent-worm invasions with black flies, which eat the eggs of the caterpillars; those flies did not carry plague, luckily, though they weren't released at the right time of year to battle the caterpillars, so the whole thing was a bit of a flop!
