Gunpowder & Embers, Volume 1
by John Ringo and Christopher L. Smith




Overview -
In the smoking ruins of our world, will the struggle for yesterday's technology spark tomorrow's global war? A new postapocalyptic novel, in which a young cowboy claims his destiny--and tries to prevent a catastophic war--from New York Times best-selling author John Ringo, Kacey Ezell, and Christopher L. Smith.

WAR IN THE SMOKING RUINS OF TOMORROW

Thirty years ago, the world ended. Giant electrovoric ants and pterodons came through a rift in space-time, millions of humans died, and that was that. Human ingenuity has provided some creative workarounds to life without electricity and with giant homicidal ants, but most people merely get by at subsistence level.

For Chuck Gordon, the simple life of a rancher was enough. But then he met a mysterious dying stranger and now he's on the road of destiny across America accompanied by a warrior monk, a beautiful dragon tamer, a runaway cultist, and a mystic drunken lecher--all searching for the key to reclaiming humanity's past--and future.

About The Valley of Shadows by John Ringo:
". . . fast-paced . . . building to an exciting climax . . . Ringo and Massa have written an end-of-the-world novel that is unconventional and entertaining."--The Galveston County Daily News

About Black Tide Rising, coedited by John Ringo (featuring stories by Kacey Ezell and Christopher L. Smith):
". . . an entertaining batch of . . . action-packed tales. Certainly, fans of Ringo's particular brand of action-adventure will be pleased."--Booklist

"This anthology broadens Ringo's Black Tide world, serving up doses of humanity amid the ravenous afflicted. Comedy has a place in this harsh reality, and these stories stir adventure and emotion at a frantic clip throughout. Zombie fiction fans will be thrilled."--Library Journal

About the Black Tide Rising Series:
"Not only has Ringo found a mostly unexplored corner of the zombie landscape, he's using the zombie frame to tackle a broader theme: the collapse and rebirth of civilization. The zombie scenes are exciting, sure, but its the human story that keeps us involved. A fine series."--Booklist on the Black Tide Rising Series

About John Ringo:
" Ringo's work is] peopled with three-dimensional characters and spiced with personal drama as well as tactical finesse."--Library Journal

". . . Explosive. . . . Fans . . . will appreciate Ringo's lively narrative and flavorful characters."--Publishers Weekly

". . . practically impossible not to read in one sitting . . . exceedingly impressive . . . executed with skill, verve, and wit."--Booklist

"Crackerjack storytelling."--Starlog

About the work of Kacey Ezell:

"Gritty, dark and damp. Much like the war itself."--Michael Z. Williamson, best-selling author of A Long Time Until Now

"I loved Minds of Men."--D.J. Butler, best-selling author of Witchy Eye
