"Imagine Conan, raised by a biker gang, in the world of Mad Max." - Darin DeVore, Between The Bubbles
In 2033 the Earth you know has changed.

Meteors fill the sky and pummel the Earth. Cities have crumbled or vanished in atomic fire. Mankind struggles to rebuild, but can barely survive. The old maps are useless. The old ways are dead. All that matters now is power…


One man rises above the rest: Clutch. The last Tribesman. He rides across the blasted lands searching for the men who killed his people, moving from one island of humanity to another, praying his fuel doesn’t run out before his luck.


After years of harrowing travel, Clutch finally has a chance for peace. He thinks he can hide from a world of violence and blood, of gun battles and up-close-and-personal killing. He is wrong.


Fate conspires against him, using herds of mutated animals, wicked surgical experiments and their master – a strange being with the power to control the minds of men. When the only person he cares about is threatened and the people who depend on him stand in his way, Clutch must decide:

Does he stand for humanity, or himself?

C.E.L. Welsh is a writer of the tense, the exciting and the adventurous. He lives in Texas with his wife, two children and a burning desire to create for which there is no salve. He loves to explore, to dig deep into a character, and to do it in all sorts of forms: comics, screenplays, short stories and novels.

While on his way to writing both a Fantasy Novel and a Sci-Fi Adventure Novel, he was blindsided by Clutch and the Wrecked Earth, and can foresee spending the next few years producing Novels, Short Stories, online & digital comics and graphic novels all set in the Wrecked Earth. He is currently working on the next installment of Clutch’s adventures—SUNDER: Book Two of The Wrecked Earth.

I've read many post-apoc tales, and this one had more substance than most of them. I'm no expert on fiction, but I really cared about the fate of most of the characters, and the author did a great job of showing me the different environments and really making me feel as if I was there. These are the ways I judge the quality of fiction. If the story can pull me out of my own real world and immerse me in its own universe, then it's worthy of praise, in my opinion. I highly recommend Clutch to anyone seeking an escape. It's a relatively quick read and doesn't take itself too seriously, which I really dug. I'm looking forward to book 2.

Interesting concept but poorly written, confusing and boring until the very end.
