Publisher's Summary

It was a fungus spore that finally did it, knocking humans off the top of the food chain, with a lot of help from a pharma company too busy thinking about oversized profits rather than subpar outcomes. Most folks died, if not from the fungus, then from the riots and starvation that came when the grocery store shelves emptied and the spigots ran dry. Plenty of other folks lived on with the fungus growing in their bones, rooting in their brains, and turning them three-quarters crazy.  
That’s when I moved underground and sealed the hatch shut on my backyard bunker. I was safe, with all the food, water, and entertainment I needed for five or six years. I had DVDs to watch, music to listen to, and books to read. Prepping had paid off for me.  
At least it seemed so at first. 
After a time, my radio stopped picking up signals from the world up top and for all I knew I was the last man alive on Earth. I’d planned for that possibility, yet never truly accepted things could turn out that way. The loneliness set in, gnawing at me and making me think crazy thoughts, including one that would change everything. Two years on, I opened the hatch and climbed out of my bunker.  
I had to see if anyone but me was left.

Great read!

I love everything Ray Porter reads to me, and I have enjoyed Bobby Adair books previously, so I immediately downloaded this book. I listen to books while I work, so the first time I listened to this book, I really didn’t “hear” it. Once I listened to the last 30 minutes of the author and editor talking about the story, I started laughing out loud at their banter and decided to restart the book and actually listen. This book is great! Such a fresh point of view of the apocalypse aftermath from an average guy who was lucky enough to survive the “toe fungus fu*kers” version of the end of the world. It really made me think about how our world is now. How we are connected to one another more than anytime in human history, yet we are isolated from one another at the same time, and how that itself can bring us to our end. And Ray Porter’s reading of this story is superb as usual!! He always gives me the emotion and tone of a story and I love listening to him!! Thanks for another well spent credit!

On Point for 2018!!!

Here's the thing, if you read the book and found it rough or too full of political POV's, then you are exactly what the book is about. It was never meant to be a sci fi thriller or zombie first person shooter novel. Instead, it offer a humorous and sarcastic view of the various issues leading to the downfall of our society. I am not sure our planet will see future societies.

As for Ray Porter, well, as they say in the baseball, this was a fastball right in his wheelhouse. A GRAND SLAM for Ray and his fans. You get the full gambit with Ray's narration. As a child of the 60's, I found myself saying a lot of the same things with the same sarcasm as Ray infused to this tale. Thank you again Ray Porter.

Great epilogue. I have to say, it was refreshing to hear the tag team explain things. Look forward to your next installment.

Long winded, too many explanations and boring.

There’s no action in this and the story witters on about his pre apocalypse life. On the upside the narrator is good.
