"A man was far ahead of her on the road. Walking and breathing. So far, so good.
That he was a man, Nayima was certain. His silhouette against the horizon of the rising roadway showed his masculine height and the shadow of an unkempt beard. He pulled his belongings behind him in an overnight suitcase like a business traveler. Maybe she trusted him on sight because of the unmistakable shape of a guitar case slung across his back. She’d always had a thing for musicians.
“Hey!” she screamed, startling herself with her bald desperation."

I dig post apocalypse stories. When I was 12 and visiting my father, he bought me my first novel dealing with the subject and I was hooked. (That book was "Ariel" by Steven R. Boyett, still a favorite of mine.) Herd Immunity is a Lightspeed tale that will stay with you and tickle at the edges of your awareness for a long, long time. It is still there for me!

"I had become, with the approach of night, once more aware of loneliness and time - those two companions without whom no journey can yield us anything."
