After Bees
by B C Nyren
$0.00, 184 pages, 4.6 out of 5.0 (33 reviews), #111 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Post-Apocalyptic
The world did not end in fire. It did not end in ice. It ended for want of an insect. The global famine and societal collapse that followed would render humans an endangered species themselves, hanging onto survival in the most remote places. Over one hundred years later, the Settlement thinks they’ve solved the problem by enslaving all men and allowing only women to rule. In this community men are viewed as wholly unfit to make decisions of their own, widely blamed for the downfall of the species. Women, by contrast, are painted as inherently honest, wise and natural-born leaders.

After handling a series of related murders and picking up a pair of new slaves, Captain of the Guard Willow Pelletier isn’t so sure.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jerry D Young was born at home, in Senath, Missouri July 3, 1953. At age 5 the family rented a small farm house on an active farm 40 miles southwest of St. Louis. While the family weren't farmers, they lived something of a homestead type life, raising a milk cow, sometimes two, and calves, a pig or two, chickens, and the occasional goat. Along with the stock, a large garden helped to feed Jerry's three brothers and two sisters for several years. Fishing and hunting contributed to the pantry, as did foraging the wild edibles on the property.

At the age of 14, the family, minus a brother and two sisters that were now adults and on their own, moved back to Senath. Having been encouraged from an early age to read, Jerry was a regular patron of the Senath Branch Library.

A love of a good story was born within him, and shortly before graduating high school, for a lack of stories that he liked at the library, he began to write short vignettes, and started taking notes for stories that he wanted to tell. Well, a full life interceded, and the writing didn't resume for several years.

But while working a job with a much free time, and the then newfangled home computer, Jerry began to write in earnest. With the occasional gap in the process, Jerry continued to research and write, never believing he could ever be published. But when he turned 50, he wanted a change in his life, left the job he was doing and began focusing on his writing.

When he became ill, the writing stopped, but not the inspiration. When he started writing again, in 2004, after getting the medical problems under control, he began to read some on-line stories dealing with emergency preparedness, one of his other loves. The die was cast. Now with over a hundred of the vignettes and short stories about how to survive disasters written, along with his other novels, Jerry decided to go for broke, adding one of his previous works every few days to his list of stories now available, Jerry continues to write, both the Prep/PAW stories, as well as action adventure with a little romance type stories that first got him started.

In the year 2035, race, religious and ethnic wars had engulfed the entire world. They had been so devastating and widespread that finding a solution had become a worldwide endeavor. For once untold trillions of the various world’s currencies was spent by governments in order to ensure that the almost collapse of societies could never happen again. The brightest and best thinkers were tasked with coming up with a world wide solution to this seemingly intractable problem. The solution that was put forth and adopted by the world’s leaders called for the gradual phasing out or dilution of all identifiable racial, ethnic and religious groups. The plan was named “Gradual Race Objective In Dilution or G.R.O.I.D for short.
Now it is the year 2235 and there have been many generations of GROID. The program is a success and the GROID are firmly in power. Someone has begun to kill prominent members of GROID. Could it be the radical group B.A.B.E.L, Brothers And Believers Everlasting? An offshoot of the Ones That Hold Existence Resolve referred to as the O.T.H.E.R? Or more sinister could it be the GROID themselves who are behind the killings? Led by the ultra-conservative radical GROID group T.E.A, The Existence Alliance Party?

Who is killing the GROID? The LEAP detective Boyd Holliston and the noted reporter Kejr Johnson join forces and attempt to unravel the mystery. In the process they find out that they have a chemistry that goes beyond the professional.
After almost being killed Reglar flees to the far north woods of Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan. He meets the beautiful but cruel Esperanza, an OTHER who has no use for Reglar who she considers a spoiled privileged GROID. His heart broken we find him now on the moon.

Sci Fi i

In this enthralling collection of short stories, DJC takes us into the minds of vampires and onto the end of the world:

How would the apocalypse occur?
The world has changed dramatically; women dominate society, and science and reason rule. There is a problem: the end of the world is nigh. One is chosen; she and her descendants are genetically enhanced to provide humanity’s salvation, but time is running out…

What is it actually like to be a vampire?
He wakes up in a strange place and little memory of how he got there. A stranger in a strange land, how will he get out? Why is his mouth so dry? What’s that constant, throbbing beat?

Would you cope if the entire world’s power suddenly switched off ?
The red light isn’t on. Nothing works, nothing is even on standby. An electric world suddenly gone flat. And people are beginning to panic. What does it mean?

Where will cloning take us?
It started with taking a cell, or cluster of cells, from one animal and creating a copy. But the science advanced in unusual ways, and wasn’t always properly monitored. Now it’s in the wrong hands, and it won’t be long until everyone becomes an all-too-familiar face.

From a self-cloning dictator gone mad to an epic love story at the point of armageddon,Sci Fi i offers a dizzying ride along and beyond humanity’s edge.

BONUS: The first few chapters of The Joining, the first part of the Riley Rising vampire series.


Personal Note from the Author

These short short stories represent a body of work started during my studies for my Master’s degree, and continued as I began teaching Creative Writing and undertook a Ph.D. Sci Fi i is the first collection of an ongoing series of short story books, with some of the stories seen here continued in the forthcoming Sci Fi ii.

I had a blast writing these, and I hope you enjoy them just as much!


Zoo: in the beginning (Alice in Fred's Place Book 1)
by Elizabeth Drake
$0.00, 290 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 Customer Reviews), #283 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Post-Apocalyptic
In this first book of the Alice in Fred’s Place trilogy, Rondy Suristein learns that her safe, secure life is anything but. It begins when she is arrested for the crime of missing a Dentist appointment. This glitch in Main’s instructions is quickly remedied, but glitches have been increasing in frequency as Main begins to break down. Fifty years earlier the world’s population traded their frightening and unpredictable lives for the safety, security, and peaceful busyness of the world that Main created. Every trace of the past has been deleted; all information is filtered through Main.

Sure, everyone wants a comfortable life. Everyone wants to be safe. But safety and security come at a price. Main took her mother, forced her father into hiding, threatened her grandparents… and then Main kidnapped her brother… Just when Rondy connects with someone she cares about, she must make some hard decisions. It’s time to action, time to flee. Escape is possible but the cost is high.

Elizabeth Drake’s writing flows, making this book hard to put down. She has created a story of the not-so-distant future set in a not-so-unbelievable world. It is full of adventure, humor, romance, and characters you will love and care about.

Have you ever noticed that history seems to repeat itself? Time and time again mankind seems to stumble through the same horrible circumstances; is it truly an IMPOSSIBLE EDEN or is it just that GOD LACKS IMAGINATION.

Reality is weaved from the dark void by God’s Writers Pool, a collection of the greatest literary minds in history. But these great minds all suffer from the same predicament, they’re all dead. So the story of creation is caught in an endless loop, fed by the echoes of these lifeless imaginations until God recruits the lively imagination of the infamous novelist Robert Fawn to complete the last chapter in the Book of Revelations and finally return peace to Eden.

Impossible Eden is a Literary/Fantasy Thriller; the story of Prime Minister Regis Dover the character with the will and the means to bring about the final solution for mankind. Robert’s narrative takes shape with the aid of his mentors as they guide him through some of the greatest scenes in literature to help illustrate the direction of his tale.
Along his journey Robert Fawn discovers his own bitterness toward humanity is the real reason he was chosen for this ominous task and the only hope for the species in the Garden is if he can overcome his dark past and finally forgive.
