I’m very pleased to announce that we have acquired Terry DeHart’s debut novel, THE UNIT. Set in Northern California just after the bombs fall, the Sharpe family takes up arms to defend themselves in a world gone mad. This is the gripping story of one suburban family fighting off a band of savage opportunists, struggling to survive a nuclear winter, and testing the limits of family bonds. Terry shows us a global catastrophe through the eyes of the smallest players and the bloody struggle of survival in the actions of the most ordinary, nuclear family.

We have acquired two books from Terry DeHart and will be publishing in Summer of 2010.

    I just finished reading the book and was very impressed. As a devotee of post-apocalyptic work, I know that realistic and engaging works in the genre and few and far between. This is one of the best. I’ll be keeping my copy on my shelf near my bedside and rereading it soon.

    i just finished THE UNIT and it was amazing!! i especially liked the way the story was portrayed in the multiple viewpoints. that made the story so much richer and more realistic. i love to read post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction and THE UNIT is a wonderful addition to those genres. Thank you, Mr. DeHart for allowing me to share your vision and i can’t wait for the sequel!
