Hi all,

In the UK recently, I bought a copy of 'Parasite Positive' and its sequel, 'The Last Days'.
Both are absolutely brilliant, but I've also seen references here and on the main site to 'Peeps', which appears to be the same book as 'Parasite Positive'.
Could someone verify whether I'm correct about that, and, if possible, let me know how I alert the website owner?
It'd be really nice if the summary for 'Peeps' http://scottwesterfeld.com/blog/books/peeps/ made reference to the fact that it wasn't a different book, especially given the number of people from around the world who buy books internationally nowadays.
Thanks!

Welcome newbie! :)

Peeps is short for ''parasite positive'', so yes, they're the same book.
