Explore the website for further detail and join the conversation on the book’s Discussion page – what information do YOU think would be the most crucial to preserve…?
First, we hear from a talented and extraordinary girl, Young Moon, as she lives through a world-shaking disaster set in motion by her father. Next, in an adventure of courage and hope, Sami seeks answers in the post-apocalyptic aftermath to the voices only she can hear, while her friend Simma survives the worst that a dystopian civilization can throw at her, and uncovers a mystery that spans planets.
Book 4, Gen, is planned for a Spring 2014 release. Seven books are planned for the series.

“The Zombie Bible” is a book about surviving the Zombie Apocalypse/Holocaust. But unlike every book before it, there’s a twist.
Lets face statistics; the chances of surviving the Zombie Apocalypse as a Human are slim. So why not look at the ‘survival game’ from the other side of the coin? If 99% of the population are zombies, why not plan for that eventuality, and find a way through to the end to get the vaccine? Why horde water, food, guns and ammunition when all you have to do is shuffle your way to survival?
The Zombie Bible is a book to teach you how to survive AS A ZOMBIE.
Biting satire, superb wit, and endearing sarcasm abound as we learn how to successfully survive the Zombie Apocalypse/Holocaust in a manner you’ve never even dreamed of.

Al Philipson was born somewhere around 1995 or later in the fevered imagination of a nerdish geek and sometimes technical writer who wants to remain anonymous when he writes fiction (including his tax return). Being a private person, he was afraid that his adoring fans (all three of them) would mob him both publicly and privately once his books caught on.
Unlike his nerdy creator, Philipson suffers from none of the weaknesses of “ordinary” humans. His body puts Mr. Universe to shame. He can bench press a Kenworth, he’s more intelligent than Einstein, and knock-down-gorgeous women find him irresistible.
His second novel, Children of Destruction, has been recently published.
His recent efforts consist of three eBook anthologies of Science Fiction short stories which include 3 of his own works:
He is currently writing his third and fourth novels and snaps viciously at anyone who dares interrupt him when he’s working.

Tim Watts and Michael O’Connell grew up in the 80s, and as such, they fixated on the entertainment genre created by the ever-present threat of nuclear Armageddon. Playing role-playing games like Gamma World and watching films like The Road Warrior in their teens, they never lost their love of aftermath fiction in all its forms.
They now host a podcast called Post-Apodaclypse (yes, that’s spelled right), a weekly show focused on tales of the end of the world and the survivors who struggle to make their way in this new reality (sometimes in cool cars). Post-nuke to pandemic to alien invasion to zombie apocalypse, all such stories are discussed and reviewed by Tim and Michael and their periodic special guests.

John Phillip Backus: American science fiction, adventure fiction, and children’s fiction writer and storyteller. Author of the After The Fall post-apocalyptic series, Jen of Earth – The Dorian Chronicles; Spirit of the Rainforest, The Wilderness Chronicles; Fireside Tales of High Adventure in the Far North Country, and creator of the Happy Hippo, Mean Wigglin, and It’s Everybody’s Wire children’s tales. Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan on December 30th, 1952 to Donald Eugene Backus and Mary Aideena (Lee) Backus, as the second of six children of Scotch-English and Native American descent. In the Author’s Forward in Hunter – After The Fall, Backus states:
“Throughout my lifetime, many individuals have influenced my love of the language and of books, not least of whom were my parents. My father, Donald, was a voracious sci-fi and adventure fiction reader. On weekend afternoons, he could often be found relaxing on the couch with his nose in a dog-eared pulp paperback, perhaps by Ray Bradbury, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert A. Heinlein, Louis L’amour, or H. G. Wells, and boasting some sort of heroic cover art––likely by Frank Frazetta, or one of his counterparts––depicting John Carter of Mars, one of the Sacketts, or Tarzan, smashing his way through hordes of enemies, blade, blaster, or six shooter in one hand and damsel in distress in the other.
My mother, Mary, cherished the more civilized, classic fiction, instilling in me a great love for such books at an early age––books she considered as doorways to a wide variety of experiences, adventures, and ideas––and which I accessed through the offerings of Lewis Carroll, James Clavell, James Fenimore Cooper, Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Robert Louis Stevenson, J. R. R. Tolkien, Mark Twain and Jules Verne to name a few. She introduced me to the wonder of libraries, bookmobiles, and natural history museums, and taught me to respect, nurture, and appreciate the magic of the written word, as well as the beauty and grandeur of our natural world. To my parents, who, by example, imparted their varied literary passions to an impressionable young mind growing up in the American Midwest in the 1950’s, I am truly grateful.”
