1 A.C. Ever Onward
A deranged soldier shoots his wife at her place of work , a secret chemical warfare lab in the California desert.
His bullets not only shatter her and her co-workers, but vials of a new nerve gas that, once released into the atmosphere, unleases a plague that kills 80% of the world's population in a week.
Ever Onward is the story of those 20% that survived --- at least for a little while.

The second book in the Ragnok Series by W.Wm.Mee. It continues the adventures, heartbreaks and battles of survivors of a world wide plague that killed off most of the human race.

'Shard' is the story of the mythical broken sword that could not be broken; the story of the people that could not exist and the story of a deed that could not be done.
It is, like all true 'legends', a tale of a little fellow battling overwhelming odds; of an insignificant nobody, (much like you or I), who fights the good fight and does the right thing. He never gives up, gives in, or gives out till the job is finished, the deed is done and the big ugly bastard is rotting in the ground!

'Across the Water' is a new historical series I have started. BOOK ONE
At this point I am planning three books to cover the life and times of a young Scottish lad, Angus McCaw, that fled to the New World after the terrible defeat of Bonny Prince Charley back in 1745.
Angus and a friend flee both the battle of Culloden and Scotland itself and try their luck in the wilderness of what will one day be 'Upstate New York'.
One adventure leads to another and soon Angus must choose between jail or the British army. There he meets up with the infamous Major Robert Rogers of 'Roger's Rangers' fame and gladly trades his redcoat for a green/black one that blends in with the vast forest.
Book One follows Angus from a fifteen year old lad in 1746 at the Battle of Colloden, as a young man hunted by the cruel British forces and when he is forced to flee his native Scotland. In the 'New World' his adventures continue as a trader with the fierce and fascinating Mohawks, his many battles during the French & Indian War. In 1759, at the age of thirty, he goes northward with Rogers and his rather 'interesting' Ranger friends to the St. Francis River on the infamous Odenack Raid. Books 2 & 3 will eventually take him to the War of 1812.
Book ONE of 'Across the Water' is now available to DOWNLOAD at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/78574#longdescr.
Book 2 of the trilogy
'Across the Water'
Book TWO available at:
Angus and his Ranger friends take part in the infamous and much debated Raid on Odenack in 1759, and endure the subsequent hardships from returning from that terrible ordeal. Angus and his close knit 'band of brothers' soon march on Montreal in 1760, then go on to travel with Rogers westward to help put down the Pontiac Rebellion at Detroit in 1763.
With the French & Indian War now over, Angus and his 'Band of Brothers' follow their rich and very eccentric leader, Captain Puntney Smyth ,back to London to claim his rich inheritance.
The rough, backwoods boys, along with several Mohawk braves led by Tahnahani, the blood brother of Angus, have adventures from the steamy brothals of London to the windswept Highlands of Scotland. The adventure continues when on an April morning in 1776, WAR breaks out between the Thirteen Colonies and Breat Britain --- and the 'Band of Brothers' are forced to choose whose side they will fight on in the coming revolution!

A little tid-bit that you may find interesting.
The title, 'Across the Water', comes from a famous drinking toast to Charles Stewart, better known as 'Bonny Prince Charley'.
After their defeat at Colloden Moor near Inverness back in the spring of 1746, the 'Bonny Prince' fled his native homeland and took refuge in Itally.
Those loyal Scotsmen who still longed for both their freedom from the English crown and the return of their 'rightful king', were forbidden by British law to wear the kilt, play the pipes, or have on their person a knife longer than their middle finger.
'Hence, the 'middle finger salute'?'
When they drank a toast to the exiled 'king', (also forbidden), they did so by passing their free hand over the cup --- signifying Charlie sailing back to reclaim the Scottish throne.
'Till the King Comes Again
Across the Water!'
A small Texas town, five years after the world went tits up and a man made plauge took out over 80% of the world's population.
In the five years since that momentous event, most of the surviving 20 % have been doing their damndest to take out the rest!
The only surviving law is the one of the gun! Especially in the wild west of the 'New Texas'!
'357 A.C. Manhunter' is my attempt to show how civilization has slipped backwards since the long ago catastrophy called by many either the 'Cleansing' or the 'Change'
With only between 5 to 10% of their orriginal population left, Mankind has been on a very slippery slope for the last three and a half centuries. Modern technology, machines, electricity are now just 'legends of a long ago time'. Many places have slipped back into savagery and live at the 'Stone Age' level of existance. Others have managed to preserve the knowledge of working metal and coarse gunpowder, but only at an early 17th century Pre-Change level.
People have split into new 'races'. Superstition and mistrust is everywhere. Slavery is rampant and war is constant, most especially between the semi-Puritan like settlement of York (near Albany on the Hudson R) and the fierce 'Prim', savages that live in the surrounding mountains. Both sides hunt the other for profit, sport and revenge.
It should be published in a few months.
Welcome, Gentle Reader to the Godkill Chronicles. This first instalment tells of the early days just after the gigantic meteor, known affectionately as 'Godkill', struck the earth.
It tells of the misadventures & escapades of Jake Hammer and his band of Misfits as they rock & roll their way across what was once the good ol' US of A.
Jake Hammer is not a nice man. He drinks, smokes and swears way too much, he speaks his mind regardless of the outcome and, horrors of horrors; he has a full blown gun fetish. He's an ex-marine, an ex-cop and an ex-husband. He respects only one rule and expects everyone to follow it:
'If you give your word on something, you better damn well keep it !Or be ready to pay the consequences!'
As I said above, Gentle Reader, Jake Hammer is NOT a nice man --- but when the shit hits the fan, or, in this case, when Godkill hit the Earth, he is EXACTLY the kind of guy you want on your side!
