ENDWORLD - A NOVEL is set approximately 15 years after machines became self-aware in the not too distant future. The Administration--A totalitarian, machine run society that provides for, but suppresses humanity and controls a sizable portion of the world--has been at proverbial war with the last remnants of "free" humanity that have dubbed themselves the People's Rebellion for Freedom and Equality.
The novel begins in the civilized, Mid-Western Territory and is the story of William MacNuff, a 17 year old who on the eve of his 18th Birthday decides to run away rather than be drafted into Administration service as a "humachine." He flees east down the eight lane, asphalt super Highway that the machines created, his destination a Rebellion controlled island, hypothetically established in the middle of the Great Sea called "Free Caymen."
His best friend Maria Markinson runs with him. Along the way, they encounter a handful of people who assist them, join them and agree to lead them to their final destination. As they are pursued by a force of machines that grows in size with each passing kilometer, they fall in love, deal with death and betrayal, and reluctantly find themselves drawn into a deeper, ageless conflict, the outcome of which will affect not only their world, but all of existence.
