Not with a Bang by Sandra Fowke

 

The end of the world wasn’t all that exciting. No airborne virus, no third world war. Just a stupid mistake made by a focus group consisting of doctors and concerned citizens. Nobody argued against the idea; why would they? What was put in the water wasn’t poisonous; it was just supposed to make us less susceptible to skin cancer. See? Not exciting. Well you know, except for the part about everybody being dead . . . .

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, Ivy Quick is a twenty year old woman searching for something to live for. But what is left when humanity faces extinction? Ivy will learn that there is a very real difference between surviving and living.


A novel, no longer online

Editor’s First Impression

By Chris Poirier, editor

Apr 27, 2009: It’s very early days—there are only three short parts posted, so far—but this one seems pretty solid, so far. Giving it 3.5 for now, with a good chance I’ll increase my rating once there is more to read.

A promising start

By Fiona Gregory, member

May 14, 2009: Two post-apocalyptic survivors stumble into each other in the desert, and drown their sorrows around a campfire..not much has happened yet, but something about this story has drawn me in and persuaded me to bookmark it. Maybe it’s the gorgeous front page art. Maybe it’s the suspense, will this man turn out to be a comrade, or a threat to the young girl who seems to have gleaned some survival skills but is still very vulnerable? The post-apocalyptic fiction field is very crowded. It remains to be seen what ideas Sandra Fowke is going to bring to this story to make it stand out and remain compelling. More detailed review and rating later.

Now if only the story would start updating again..hint, hint 😉
