Damn. I don't know what I want to do most, read it or burn it after. I'll let my two-year-old son set fire to it (oh shut up, I'll OBVIOUSLY supervise him) and film it and so on if you send me a copy. Oh and it'll take place in Sweden, which could be kind of interesting. Scorch Atlas scorches Scandinavia.
