I'm pleased to announced that my collection of post-apocalyptic horror tales, AFTER THE BURN, is now available for pre-order at Thunderstorm Books!
This collection of two novellas and six short stories follows the exploits of a handful of survivors in a nuclear-devestated world ruled by the dregs of the earth; serial killers, child molesters, rapists, and cannibals, as well as radiation-evolved mutants. AFTER THE BURN is a project that I've had in mind for many years -- over twenty years, in fact -- originating way back when my story "Flesh Welder" was first published in 1990. But don't expect Ol' Ron to pull any punches in this one. ATB is my most extreme and explicit work yet (would you expect any less in a post-apocalyptic world where evil reigns over goodness?) However, an inspirational theme does thread its way throughout the majority of the stories, showing that hope and decency will, eventually, prevail over the most heinous of tragedies, even a man-made Armageddon.
AFTER THE BURN is being offered in a special, limited hardcover edition as one of Thunderstorm Books Black Voltage titles. The design and production values are first-rate with this one and boasts yet another incredible cover by artist Zach McCain, this one depicting the majority of the characters in the book, which is vast.
