Seabound Chronicles, Book 1
When an apocalyptic catastrophe decimates the land, a lucky few escape to sea. 1,003 survivors make their home on a souped-up cruise ship called the Catalina. After sixteen years, the strain begins to show in a floating world of distrust and shifting allegiances.
Esther is a young mechanic who wants to prove herself, and she’s willing to take risks in the name of progress. But when the fresh water tanks explode, endangering the lives of everyone aboard the Catalina – it’s all Esther’s fault.
With only a little water left, the crew of the Catalina must use its last fuel to sail for help. They head to an unknown seabound metropolis called the Galaxy Flotilla. The inhabitants of the Galaxy are keen to parade their lives of luxury, but what do the saviors really want in return for their warm welcome? And what is really going on below decks?
When disaster strikes again, Esther must fight to save the lives of her friends aboard the Catalina before it’s too late.

An apocalyptic themed party game of survival, crassness, and keeping it together as your friends laugh so hard they wet their pants.
The concept of the game is similar to some of the party games you may have played before. But the End of the World Card Game adds a new twist… an apocalyptic twist.
Unlike trying to survive a legit apocalypse, this card game is pretty simple. Each round, the round leader reads a survival scenario from a red “Survival” card, and everyone else answers with their best white card which we call “Provision” cards.
This first launch edition is based on the “Zombie Apocalypse.” The scenarios we’ve come up with are designed to match perfectly with our over-the-top Provision cards. We promise that if you’re not rolling on the floor laughing after 5 minutes, you’re probably much better people than we are.

Stuck with a photographer’s assistant, her rapidly drying out sister and a handsome, mysterious stranger who may or may not be a third cousin once removed, she must make her way through a deteriorating city and avoid friends and neighbors who are suddenly Very Hungry.

After an asteroid hits earth, most of the worlds population is dead. In Norway, there are survivors. Our lead heroine’s quest to reunite with her mother is hindered not only by the icy landscape, but by violent viking gangs.
Civilization has collapsed. The world is dying.
It happened very fast. Within weeks, isolated news reports of people acting in strange and often violent ways became frequent and widespread. Terrifying videos were uploaded to the internet in shocking numbers from across the globe. Chaotic images of societies in rapid decline.
Then—everything went dark. No electricity, no internet, no broadcasts on the emergency radio station.
Now—howling, angry, bloodied creatures claw to get into Johnny Salibi’s house, where he lives with his wife and infant daughter.
But Johnny and his family are safe. He’s boarded up the windows. The door is locked and secure. They will ride things out until the government can get things under control again. They’re safe. . .
. . . except that they’re not.
Johnny must try to protect his wife and daughter in a world suddenly turned apocalyptic. But things will not go according to plan. Johnny will learn that the zombie plague is not what he or anyone else thought it was. He will learn that the government is not in any position to rescue them. And he will also learn that an unlikely group of survivors might hold the key not only to survival, but to salvation.
Combining elements of zombie fiction, apocalyptic literature, and spiritual thrillers, this is the gripping tale of a man whose faith in God is put to the test with life and death—and even greater—consequences.
Planned for publication on 12/12/12.

It is a story of ordinary people with extraordinary resolve, who, by their wills and wits alone, rise above the devastation to fashion a new world from the smoldering ashes of the old.
Travel with our champions in this superbly crafted tale of adventure as they seek to establish a new life, refusing to relinquish their freedom or humanity amidst the unprecedented chaos and renaissance of the post-End War environment.
Having survived the Great Purging and its aftermath, they cling to life, to one another, and to all that is cherished by the enlightened mind while navigating a gauntlet of conscienceless villains, hell bent on wreaking further havoc, motivated by a twisted desire to rule their fellows by force.
While the brutal realities of a post apocalyptic future are not easily endured, this remains fundamentally a story of hope, honor, and redemption—and of the triumph of the heart, even when faced with the most dire of circumstances.

Visit After The Fall Series
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.”
