EVERYTHING WAS UPSIDE DOWN, YOU SEE, NOBODY SUSPECTED A THING. SO OUR DOOM CAME FROM THE LIAR, THE ARROGANT AND THE KING.
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse have arrived in the Van Diemen Chronicles.
In the year 2044 an orchestrated plague of the undead was unleashed upon mankind in order to reduce the world’s population. Twenty years later on the island of Tasmania a small community has slowly arisen from the ashes of this destruction without a political and monetary system and with a new generation of youth who are free from the traditions and conditioning of the past. But the Lying Horseman, the last surviving politician from the Old World, wants to return to power, and this leads to a brutal betrayal of his own people in the abandoned city of Hobart.

“And Captain Blood bids you a fond farewell!” he shouted as he leaped from the last car and hit the road, running flat chat up the main street. He hoped Errol Flynn was a fast runner as well.
