Outpost: A Dystopian Novel set in a Post-Apocaplyptic World

by Matthew Keith

A small survivor community in a dystopian America wages an internal war on itself when the residents disagree what is best for their future.


In rural Kentucky, one hundred and sixty-one survivors of the apocalyptic Great Rains huddle inside a one-block, walled off section of town: a place they call Outpost.

It has been two years since the toxic rains fell. The people of Outpost have managed to survive by working together, scavenging food from empty homes and businesses, guarding one another while they sleep.

They have persevered through their worst nightmare–or so they believed.

But now a stranger has come to their community and offered them a choice: they can come with him and go to war with those responsible for destroying the world. Or they can do nothing and hope some other community has the courage to do what they can’t.

They’ve already suffered greater than they believed was possible, but many of them still want to fight. Others are skeptical. They don’t believe the stranger’s story and want nothing to do with furthering their own misery. They like things just the way they are… and they’ll fight to keep it that way.

Even if that fight is with those they call friend and neighbor.

An apocalyptic novel set in a not-so-distant dystopian future.

WARSEC 1: Regulation (2094-2095): The WARSEC Interstellar Series Book 1

by Ash Gawain

2094. The successful testing of the Alcubierre metric makes faster-than-light travel possible.

For Michael Vahlroos, CEO of V-Space, this is the start of a new era. Not only will his company be able to sell new spaceships, but it will also spearhead the exploitation of extraterrestrial resources, a must to ensure welfare to our overpopulated earth. Private corporations are the right players to boldly do what no-one has done before.

For UN diplomat Ralf Ã?hman, however, the added value of private corporations in space is overrated. Has not the failure of the Martian colony been caused by a greedy entrepreneur, leaving the last Martian survivor on her own? Space has to be better regulated.

REGULATION (2094-2095) is the first book of the WARSEC series, a race to the stars between private corporations and the United Nations organization. It is a grounded space odyssey for readers interested in geopolitics, science, and the future of mankind.
