Introduction - I am writing a free online serial novel "American Apocalypse II" and would like comments and readers

Hello,

I began writing this and posting it on the "Calculated Risk" blog. The posts turned into stories which took up to much space. I moved them to another blog, and from there to their very own blog. 

The story is about life in America after the economic crash. The government is retreating to "Economic Zones" and leaving large parts of the United States to survive on their own. Cities and towns can no longer provide services. Unemployment is rampant.

The characters in the story or a mixed group who are trying to survive on a farm and build a community. I am trying to stay away from writing about military hardware. Instead I want to explore the cultural and societal changes

The site: http://theamericanapocalypse.blogspot.com/

Thank you.

 Good luck with your project.  Another interesting book on this same subject is: World Made by Hand by James H. Kunstler.

Hi Ben,

 

Thanks. You ever read "A Canticle for Liebewitz" I will add yours to my wish list.  People have been telling me good books to read lately. The problem is finding the time. 

 

Regards,

Nova -

Nice work.  I am halfway through Ch 1-7 and so far so good.  Many of the issues and topics you cover have been hammered back and forth here on CM.com.

I like your writing style too.  I just hope I don't lose too much time at work.
