A new Endworld is due out in April of 2009.
Endworld is post-apocalyptic fiction. It details the efforts of a survivalist group called the Family to endure in a world overrun with horrors spawned by a global conflict involving nuclear, biological and chemical weapons.
Endworld is notable for its themes. One of the most obvious is its emphasis on the family and the home as the foundations of civilization.
Endworld also has a distinct political subtext. In many of the novels, the Family's protectors, known as the Warriors, travel to cites and territories where different forms of government hold sway. Democracy, communism, aristocracy, technocracy, metrocracy, theocracy, autocracy, oligarchy, hierarchy and more are shown as various post-war societies---and what those societies have done to the people they control.
But perhaps Endworld's most notable theme is its examination of the warrior ethos. Each Warrior stands as an archetype of a particular warrior ethic. For example, there is Geronimo, who represents the Native American warrior. There is Rikki, who typifies the martial spirit of the samurai. There is Ares, the purist devoted to war. There is Yama, who takes it one step further and seeks to become the personification of Death. There is Samson, the warrior who fights for God. And there is Blade, the 'everyman' warrior. All told, there are eighteen Warriors, male and female, human, hybrid and mutant.
