Congrats on wrapping up another big series, Gregg! https://t.co/HBAj4mshER @briallenhopper Sounds like a pretty cure for depression and many other ailments as well @erinbiba Have you read the graphic novel Meal? It's all about entomophagy (and gentrification and Columbusing). Plus, an adorable romance. @erinbiba Sigh. People all over the world eat bugs and drink recycled potable water. Thinking it's "Un-American" says a great deal.
