You think The Road was bleak? You found Zone One kind of dark and relentless? Bah. The latest literary apocalypse, Ben Marcus' The Flame Alphabet, is weirder, more disturbing and harder to deal with than any of your other literary calamities.
Erin Cosgrove created this dark, weird trailer for Ben Marcus' new novel, The Flame Alphabet. Billed as "an intellectual horror story," it's the tale of a world-ending disease that spreads through language. Only children are immune.
