The day is finally here! You can download the full current edition of Life After: Humanity Ruined, the first book of The Human Trilogy, for free right here! Here’s the deal — we want to know what you think. Read the book and give us your thoughts. Any constructive criticism is welcome. We wrote this book to start a dialogue about humanity and its future, so let the conversation begin!
You have your choice of formats, and if you have any difficulty, leave us a comment and we’ll make sure to get you a copy that fits your needs.
We look forward to your feedback, and you can always donate to us using the sidebar if you want to support us pre-kickstarter.
The site is a little more streamlined, a small change necessary for what we’re going to be doing in the next few weeks to drum up excitement for the book. Get in touch with us and let us know what you think — the new excerpt is the last edit of Arcs I and II of Life After: Humanity Ruined, and the Timeline of the Dying Years is refined to reflect recent events. As mentioned on the Excerpts parent page, we’ll be making public for the first time some content from A Glorious Dawn: Humanity Renascent and Empire: Humanity Triumphant.
As always, spread the word, keep in touch, and enjoy.
For your first blog post by the wife-half of this bad-ass writing team, I will be sharing a profound experience that … no, that is a lie. I will be ranting. Life isn’t all seriousness, death, destruction, and a possible apocalypse. There’s also laughter, lightheartedness, and venting about the psycho woman who lives next door, constantly interrupting our writing process. If there are book delays, it’s her fault. If I seem like I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in a week, it’s her fault. If frogs begin to fall from the heavens, I have no doubt in my mind that it’s her fault.
In an effort to inject a little humor into our somewhat depressing subject matter, I’ve composed an open letter for your perusal. This is only relevant to Life After in that it makes me think humanity may already be ruined.

Going to be doing another redesign of the site. We’ve nearly got the eBook release ready (details soon, promise!) and want to put up a refined excerpt for all you lovely readers. We’re also looking at making some of A Glorious Dawn and Empire available online so that everyone can get a taste for the true scope and ambition of The Human Trilogy.
Also coming up is going to be the Timeline of the Dying Years — in a new format exclusive to this site. We’re going to be adding it with multimedia content relative to the points being made. That way when you see reference to the 1930′s coup attempt in the U.S.A., you can actually look at the public record online to see that it’s not overdramatised — just overlooked.
Anyway we’re off for now to tend to the mess behind the curtain before we can pull it back on the new version of the site, but keep in touch here and on Facebook!
I was looking at the Full++ excerpt earlier when I noticed a few things were off.
Like the page count, and all the edits made from the last version.
Somehow I failed in uploading the new version of the Full Excerpt, and instead I wound up creating a new copy of the ‘old‘ Full excerpt, which only has the first Arc and the timeline.
I am letting the cat out of the bag on my mistake since I want everyone to know that the full length excerpt from Life After is now actually available.
Please enjoy — there have been minor changes to Guests as well as some tidying up of the Timeline of the Dying Years. Of course as with the Short++ excerpt, there’s now War Is Rediscovered before the Ruins Are Explored teaser.
Keep your eyes here for more announcements! The Timeline project has started, and we’ve got other news to share soon. As always, comments are most welcome.
The ‘Plus Plus’ version of both the Full and the Short excerpt are now available here and here on The Human Trilogy site! The ++ version has added Arc II, ‘War Is Rediscovered’ to the excerpts, which means you get to read the climactic battle between Dakk’s survivors and Houghman’s slavers. I’m eagerly awaiting to hear what people think of the decisions Dakk and his people make in the first and last chapters of Arc II.
These are of course hosted by Scribd, which means you can feel free to embed, download, print, etc. Please share this with people who you think would enjoy it, and tell them to contact me with their feedback!
I hope you are all enjoying the text as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it, and I look forward to being able to share the full book with everyone soon.
Thank you all so much for the support and comments.
For this to be in any sort of context, I suggest you read the first part of this sadly short-lived series. Perhaps others will later inspire further posts of this nature. I definitely welcome such dialogues. That established, here is the conclusion of my conversations with Joshua Chavers, the Director of Volunteers for Presidential Candidate Buddy Roemer’s election campaign. Continue reading
