IFWG Publishing is proud to announce the release this month of Ferryman, by Jonathon Wise. This is a very powerful, emotional novel of a world engulfed in the apocalyptic effects of a deadly virus. Jonathon Wise follows different routes than other 'virus' based stories, and we are proud indeed to be his publisher.
A young adventurer descends to the depths of a newly opened cave following a devastating earthquake in Mexico. While he gives into a strange compulsion to take off his oxygen mask and hold it to the microbial slime on the floor, he has but one thought in mind. He hopes to be forgiven.
The days of humanity are numbered when the plague takes its first victim a month later. The few who survive bear witness to the downfall of civilization. Humanity, once masters of their environment, are now slaves to nature. Not that this torment will be long lived, since no pregnancy has been carried to full term.
In this world of lost hope, one man rises to fulfill his destiny and lead the people back. This is the story of the Ferryman.
