Press Release – Blurbs and Reviews for After the Flood by Shane Joseph

 

Author’s Note:

This is not a work of science fiction. Speculative fiction, I might buy. So, Dear Reader, if you are looking for giant spaceships, androids, super-heroes and inter-galactic warfare, you will not find them in this book. What you will find is our present world, at least what’s left of it after the Flood, and a remnant population gifted with a clean slate to make things right again. You will find technological remains of our time, some taken to newer heights, others left to languish. And you will find mankind hobbled once more with that greatest of impediments holding it back from building a utopia – desire.

 

After the Flood   Wins National Award!

 

After the Flood F&B cover - low resAfter the Flood:

A tale of love, loss and lust in a fundamentalist society formed in the aftermath of a giant flood that destroyed most of the earth in 2012.

David Arthurs, born after the Flood, tries to save his Humanitarian city state of Tolemac—located somewhere in the former North America—from sinking into sin and destruction as the forces of Capitalism sweep in from across the waters of neighbouring New Eden. How is he to overcome the forces of evil when his father and founder of Tolemac, Samson, is having an affair with the beautiful New Eden exile Delia Stone, when media-manipulated local elections oust David from political office, and when a drug cartel is poisoning the minds and bodies of the youth in the once peaceful island state? And more importantly, when, for the first time, David finds himself succumbing to temptations of the flesh that were outlawed during the founding of Tolemac but never eradicated from the human genetic code.

After the Flood poses the question: “If mankind was granted a new slate to create Utopia, could it?”

After the Flood is a dystopian novel of love, desire, and loss in a fundamentalist society created in the aftermath of a giant flood that drowns most of the earth.

David Arthurs, born after the earth changing flood, tries to save his humanitarian city state of Tolemac—located somewhere in former North America. Can he save this new utopian state from sinking into sin and destruction as capitalism sweeps in from across the waters of neighbouring New Eden. How is he to overcome the forces of greed when his own father, founder of Tolemac, is having an affair with a beautiful New Eden exile. Media manipulation, political scandal, a drug cartel, all serve to poison the minds and bodies of the youth in the once peaceful island state?

Shane Joseph engages the reader not only by his clear knowledge of the Old Testament but also by his insights into man-woman relationships. His flair in handling the age old problem of the other man, the other woman, the secret longing for carnality is revealed in his honest, well crafted, portrayal of characters.

After the Flood, poses the question: “If mankind was ever granted a new slate to create Utopia, could it?”
