Tired of the typical post-apocalyptic novel where biker gangs terrorize whoever survives the collapse? Or the survival fiction that requires the characters to have access to a ton of stored food, silver, water purification, an armory, and the ultimate underground millionaire bunker?
Yes, these have all been done before… and they are not exactly realistic fiction.
However, what if history repeated itself (which it occassionally does…) and things that happened in the past happened again in the future?
What would it look like? Who would survive and why? What wars and challenges would these people face?
20 Years in the Future is 500 Years in the Past…
Enter The Last Pilgrims by Michael Bunker (author of the best-selling book Surviving Off Off-Grid). This fictional novel takes realistic off-grid concepts and applies it to those that are living 20 years after the collapse.
The characters in The Last Pilgrims become likeable after only a few chapters. The storyline is engaging and quickly becomes engrossing. Some who read early versions of the book described it as like waiting to find out what happened in the next episode of “Lost”.
This story is also for those that liked the Jericho T.V. series. And for those that like the popular Hunger Games, this could be their next big thing. Many who have read the book believe it will make an excellent movie.
The Last Pilgrims novel is tentatively slated for release in February of 2012. For now you can get started by reading the Novella (the first 12 chapters of the book) online for free. As the excitement builds you can also pass the links onto your friends, post it on Facebook, and spread the trailer around.
