Overview

The post-apocalyptic world isn't that bad. Sure, there are mutants. But, for the people of New Hope, daily life isn't so much a struggle of finding food or medicine as it is trying to find a new shortstop for their kickball team.

This makes it difficult for a post-apocalyptic warrior to find work.

Thankfully, an army full of killers is making its way to the peaceful town and plans to raze it to the ground. Only a fully trained post-apocalyptic nomadic warrior can stop them.

Two have offered their services. One is invited to help. The other is sent to roam the wasteland. Did the townspeople make the right decision? Will they be saved? Did they find a shortstop? What's with all the bears?

Find out in Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors, a fast-paced action and adventure novel set in a horrific future that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Meet the Author

I was born in Canada; I grew up in Texas. In between I've had a thousand fascinations.

Little things. Trivial things. Almost anything can catch my imagination and spur on a thought-a random article on Wikipedia can cost me hours of a day as I link from page to page.

Mix this active imagination with poor time management skills and you get me. I have more ideas for stories than I have time to tell.

But, I'm trying; I write in the wee hours, the downtime hours, and the many hours when I should be sleeping. One day I hope to write in the daylight hours. Maybe then I'll be able to stay a step ahead of my imagination.

Until then I'll do my best to write books worth reading with jokes worth laughing at as fast as I can. The serious stuff is being taken care of by a world full of great writers. I don't want to shock you or change your mind. I don't even care if it makes you think. I just want you to squirt that drink out your nose.

Hope it's not carbonated.
That tends to sting.

    The name and cover art should tell you all you need to know abou

    The name and cover art should tell you all you need to know about this book. It's a comedy about Post-Apocalyptic America. I wasn't sure how I'd like the book since "funny" is so subjective but it turns out I like it pretty well. This book has it all. Car chases. Romance. Shoot outs. Even a would-be hero that tries to dive behind a wall to save himself from a bullet and ends up diving INTO the wall and busting his head open. You should know that when one of the dangers of the wild is "Super Smart Bears" you are in for a good time.

    I'll be reading future books from Mr. Wallace. And if you like a little bit of cheese with your humor, I think you should too.

    P.S. For effect, have a copy of Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire available to listen to during a particular part of this book. It'll bring a smile. I assure you.

    Great Book -- Big Fun

    A recipe for: Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors

    Mix:

    One part Shaun of the Dead
    One part Monty Python humor
    One part Fallout 3

    Oh never mind, there's no recipe for it. You simply can't make this stuff up at home--unless you're Benjamin Wallace. Wallace has written the ultimate popcorn munching summer read. Buy it.

    a five-star romp

    Did you ever see Men in Black or better yet Men in Black II? Of course you did. Well, that tells you pretty much what to expect from Benjamin Wallace's debut novel. Just picture Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in a post-apocalyptic nightmare world, except they're not on the same side this time, and get ready to stay up all night laughing.

    **spoiler alert**

    It's seven years after the apocalypse. Plants, animals, and humans have mutated. Cities are a shambles and what still lives in one is nothing you want to meet. The survivors have hunkered down in walled villages, and post-apocalyptic nomadic warriors travel the roads in Mustangs and motor homes, offering their services to the leery inhabitants.

    Some of these warriors are better than others. Some are trustworthy. Others aren't. The village of New Hope has two such warriors to choose between, and when the town bureaucrats make the wrong choice, the only man who can save the villagers is the somewhat bumbling alternative, the one they just threw out on his butt. Jerry and his drooling mastiff sidekick, Chewy, must protect the town, defeat an evil army intent on appropriating slaves and supplies, and rescue the captives seized from other, already destroyed villages.

    Some reviewers describe Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warrior as a comic book without the drawings, and that's reasonably apt. Another good term for it is comedic thriller. Wallace didn't stint on tension, and the second half of the novel is page-turning action with cliffhanger endings for each chapter, interspersed with groaners and solid laughs. This reviewer read for three hours straight, because there was no place to stop.

    Almost every novel published as an ebook contains errors, either in formatting or the usual grammatical and word choice stuff (they're/their, it's/its). Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warrior is well formatted, but it would have benefited from the attention of a good line editor. While the errors made this reviewer pause occasionally, they didn't interfere sufficiently with the reading process to dampen the appreciation:

    (while driving in a motor home trying to outrun bad guys on motorcycles) "Brake!"

    [Erica] stomped on the brake. The coach lurched forward on its frame. . . . There was a thud from behind the coach. A rider shot past them on the right.

    "Now, go!"

    She mashed the gas. "What was that switch?"

    "It turns off the brake lights."

    Five stars for a romping good read, line edited or not.
