Hey there everyone. I originally made my first post in the book bazaar... and then I found this forum. Thought I'd pop in and introduce myself. Nice to meet all of you! My main passion is science fiction, although I am also obsessed with apocalypse scenarios. I write to fulfill my hunger; my need to have that "perfect" story. I'm really picky when it comes to stories and although I enjoy a lot of what I read, nothing fully satisfies my thirst.

My 1st book literally throws you into the mind of a confused and amnesic man named Dante. He was there, at ground zero, when all Hell broke loose. Yet, after a certain point, everything is completely blank. Six years later, it all begins to come back - just in time to distract him from what's going on behind the scenes. I wrote this story memory by memory. Dante gives you a little taste of the present and then slips into a memory. That memory stops and the present slams back into perspective and then, right before something really big happens, you're seeing the past again. To the more observant eye, you might notice that certain things are similar. But this is all part of the plan.

And then you reach a certain point when his memories finally fill themselves out - too late to save the lives of those he'd sworn to protect. Maybe even too late to save himself.

There's a bigger story behind this novel though. To some, it may seem like it's just about zombies and the end of the world. But what made me write this book -- what made me take a page and a half of some crappy little short story and transform it into this 80,000 word novel, was love. Poisonous love and a shattered heart. I thought for a long time that this book could be my special little slice of revenge. I thought that, once it was published, she'd be browsing the Internet and she'd find it and realize that I wasn't just yanking her chain when I told her, the very last time we spoke, that I was going to write a book. I was going to write a book and it was because of her.

It's all because of her.

But now, I'm just working on my next story, Osiris-9. An epic space traveler's dream gone horrible wrong.

Again, nice to meet all of you. ;)

The Book Bazaar / PaxCorpus (SciFi) - Ryan S. Fortney - $1.99

Hey everyone! New to these boards so I thought I'd start here.

My very first book, PaxCorpus is available for only $1.99 at the following locations:

Now that all of that is out of the way, here's my little summary:

Some believe extraterrestrials will end life as we know it. Others believe the risen dead will ravage the population and dominate the Earth. And then there are the others that think terrorists will wipe us out.

I say, “why not all three?”

The year is 2020, nearly six years after much of the planet’s population has been wiped out. Through the eyes of a man named Dante Marcellus, you experience the reclamation of memories lost due to unknown reasons.

With the undead and a slew of monstrous aliens (spawned from a rift in Manhattan) walking the desolate planes of the United States of America, the remaining population fights to survive under the protection of a group named PaxCorpus.

But to make things even crazier, the homicidal terrorist movement, ZeroFactor, threatens to murder anyone not affiliated with themselves – a new world order, they say – extinction.

Fighting tooth and nail to get a grasp on the events of his past, Dante unknowingly causes a chain of events that lead to an almost mirror of the events that caused humanities’ situation to begin with.

And with a vulgar, blood-stained kick to the face, everything unwinds right before him, with the barrel of his own weapon aimed between his eyes.

This isn’t about glampires or raging teenage hormones – this is PaxCorpus – the beginning of the end.

If you're reading this thread, thank you for stopping by!
