THE BEST OF US (Nomad book one)

Half the world is a wasteland: the rest is on borrowed time. The West has been devastated by epidemics, bio-terrorism, war, and famine, Asia has shut its borders to keep the threats at bay, and those with power and influence have already abandoned Earth. Now an escape route a century in the making – the Nomad mission – finally offers hope to a small town and a secret research centre in a rural American backwater. Hidden even from the centre's staff, Nomad is about to fulfil its long-dead founder's vision of preserving the best of humanity to forge a new future. But who decides who's worthy of salvation? The mission is now in the hands of a unique AI called Solomon, and an encounter with a band of military veterans reshapes his plans for mankind's future

It's available in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle, and an Audible exclusive audio book.

Hardcover: 978-1-949731-13-2

This is the first book in the Nomad series, which started life as part of a collaboration with Galaxy's Edge indie authors Jason Anspach and Nick Cole. It's set in Earth's near-future, a thousand years before the events in their bestselling universe, so it's a very different world.

Book two, MOTHER DEATH, will be out shortly.
