What if I have the old version? Ulysses Press is releasing AA I as a mass market paperback in the US, UK, and Canada. If the book is successful, which I think it will be, you will own a collectors copy. The quality of editing, and perhaps writing, is better in AA II. Hopefully the same can be said about Gardener Summer and AA III.
I also pulled the rough draft of AA I. Why? I no longer own it. I was also running up against the maximum number of posts Google allows you here. I did archive it so all your comments have been saved. Below is the new cover and Ulysses description of the book. Thanks.
This is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller set in America after the complete socioeconomic collapse. Although an innocent casualty of the chaos, one young patriot must discover his inner strength and defiant courage as he comes of age learning how to survive in the wasteland of anarchy and mobs violence. With the economy in free fall, the government crippled by indecision, the streets taken over by desperate mobs, and the fragile institutions of civilisation crumbling, America suffers a full-scale collapse. Amid the destruction and anarchy, a young man finds himself homeless and alone on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., facing certain death unless he can master survival skills he never imagined needing. An innocent casualty of the chaos, this young patriot must discover his inner strength and defiant courage as he comes of age in the desolation of the country's crumbling capital. Fending off violent citizens in a wasteland of looting and mayhem, the protagonist emerges as an ultimate force of justice in a lawless land. This compelling, fast-paced novel pulls readers in and lets them experience firsthand what life in the United States will be when its teetering society finally falls.
Edit: I also would like to say that without your comments and participation in all this that none of it would have ever happened.
