The Eschatologist - by Greg Chapman - A post apocalyptic novella
Let's start with a quick definition of the term Eschatology. Here's what the Merriam-Webster dictionary has to say, Eschatology. plural es·cha·tol·o·gies. 1 : a branch of theology concerned with the final events in the history of the world or of humankind.
The Eschatologist takes that definition and delivers a novella that embodies the very idea of religion in a post apocalyptic world.
Greg Chapman opens the story with a gripping opening line, "The after-world was a canvas of ashen ruin painted by death."
What follows is a story of family, sacrifice, and the scary idea that even in a world that has completely fallen apart there will always be a lunatic fringe.
The Eschatologist is available now as an e-book from Voodoo Press.
