I'm currently reading short stories from an anthology called "The Undead" (Zombie Anthology). It's currently available as a book or as a free download for the Nook or Kindle. Most of the stories have a clever twist or novel approach to the subject of Zombies. Plus, the short story format is perfect for busy people. I'm pleasantly surprised at how good the stories are so far.
I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.
