"The Ishim Underground is like no other post-apocalyptic book you will read."
"You can tell you're reading a good book when it inspires you to write something grand out of pure excitement."
"The way that she describes this new world, its own cultures, and the conceptions that they have of our time is quite immersive!"
"I look forward to what ever comes next in this world."
The Ishim Underground (2015)
100,000-ish words -- New Adult-ish -- New Zealand-ish
Post-apocalyptic adventure. Two cultures at odds, the emerging city state of Auckland and the nomadic peoples who surround it.

"I'm interested in life without technology and the philosophy of developing cultures. I've often wondered what dark age scribes were thinking when they read about the lost technology of the ancient world. Oppression. Lawlessness. Cults. Nomads. Slavery. A time when the remnants of science could be confused with cosmic intervention. When the earth is in chaos. I incorporate elements of both Jewish and Plains Indian mythology into my post-apocalpytic writing. And, yes, there is a strain of coffee that makes people a sort immortal... if you drink enough." - C Bailey 2014
