Overview

The world, as we know it, has ended.

One man stands resolute. A man who has been trained in the savage arts of war. A man who lives his life according to a creed. A simple man who wants none of the power thrust upon him. This man is Marine Sergeant Nathaniel Hogan, seconded to the American Embassy in London and, although he does not know it, he is – The Forever Man.

The first pulse occurred in the old calendar year of 2022. A sequence of gigantic solar flares created a series of massive electromagnetic pulses that stopped the heart of our modern world and returned us to the DARK AGES.

Tens of thousands died within the first few hours as airplanes fell from the skies, hospitals ceased to work and every form of modern transportation ground to a halt.
Within days the death toll had reached the hundreds of thousands. Fires raged unchecked through the cities, water supplies ran out and survivors turn on each other as mob rule surpassed all else.

And Nathaniel finds that he has been changed by the huge amounts of Gamma radiation in the solar flares. They have enhanced his natural abilities, giving him increased speed, strength and healing. Indefinitely extended his life span and enabling him to be able to draw on the power of the solar flares to create magik.

But even The Forever Man was not prepared for what happened next, as the ongoing flares tore a hole in time and space, creating a gateway through which ‘they’ appeared. From the realms of fantasy came the orcs, the goblins and, leading them all – the Fair Folk.

Were they here to help – or to conquer?

Craig Zerf has gotten serious! This is the first in his MAMMOTH new Post Apocalyptic Fantasy series that covers hundreds of years of man's dystopian existence under the yoke of the Fair-Folk.

Award winning author...Chosen by London Radio BBC 4 as the "YEAR'S BEST READ."

New York Times Best Selling author Michael Marshal says, "Brutal and Uncompromising with unforgettable characters and real emotional punch.”

SF CROWSNEST - Craig Zerf is inflated with invention and well endowed with wit.

Craig grew up in Africa and went on to become a fellow of Trinity College and an alumnus of Cornell University New York.
At the age of 16 he was called up to the South African Defence Force and although many of his friends are now dead, he counts among the survivors various soldiers, gunrunners and warlords.
He is extremely proficient in the use of most small arms and has been in numerous fatal close-combat situations.
There is much in his life that he cannot talk about as it is hidden under the South African official secrets act that he signed in 1982.
As a result of these experiences - all of his books are written from either direct knowledge or experience and much is based on actual events. This gives them a unique level of accuracy, reality and poignancy.
Craig now lives in England with his wife, Polly and son Axel.
He also writes award-winning action thriller novels under the name C. Marten-Zerf.
