Forager – A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller
by Peter R Stone
Ethan Jones is a forager who lives in a post-apocalyptic, oppressive society that terminates anyone with mutations caused by nuclear radiation. When Skel savages ramp up their attacks on the foraging teams, Ethan has to find out if this is part of a larger plan that could spell the town’s doom and why the Skel suddenly possess advanced technology. Who is backing them, and why?
His life becomes further complicated when he rescues a mysterious Japanese girl from the Skel and brings her back with him, for she breaks the town’s rigid conventions in her pursuit of him, placing their lives in jeopardy. Her odd behaviour and probing questions baffle him, as does the fact that he understands her when she speaks in Japanese.
