Know More

At birth Attila was saddled with a name he could never live up to. At age 7 he was forced into a body he could never excel in. At age 14 he chose to commit actions he could never atone for. Unfortunately, much like his namesake, the rules and expectations of others weren’t something he gave much attention to. Unfortunately for those others who wanted to force them on him that is. Especially since at age 21, he got the ultimate “reset”. If only he can find the “On button” for all his new abilities.




A Word from the Author

Author Michael Shaffer pictureImagine for a moment yourself in your current life. You’ve worked hard all your life, striving to get ahead, become better. For some of you this has been a relatively short amount of time. For others, decades. You may even be in your evening years, well into retirement. You may or may not be successful, but you’ve always tried your best. Yet you’ve always felt you were being held back. That there was something preventing you from being your full potential.
Then an asteroid from nowhere swings past Earth, showering it with a weird dust over the span of a week. A couple days after the dust starts falling, you get ravenously hungry. You eat and drink everything in sight. Even things that you might have been deathly allergic to, you devour without thought or issue. You swell to three-times your size. A fat blob that can barely move. Then the hunger passes and you all but pass-out in your bed.
Two weeks later, you wake up. Not only is the fat gone, but you have the body of a twenty-five year old you, only in top physical condition. All injuries gone as if they never existed. All scars gone. Perfect eyesight. Only it isn’t just top. You are now ten to twenty percent faster and stronger than pretty much everyone else. Not only that, your mind moves around problems with ease. To say nothing of that haunting music you hear/don’t hear that seems to guide you.
Quite a few of you reading this have often thought “If only I had the knowledge I do know when I had the body of when I was younger.” Now you do. What are you going to do?

Nebulous Bob is the first book of the Apocalypse Memoirs scifi/apocalyptic/humor series by Eliot Mercy

Cover Nebulous Bob - Apocalypse Memoirs 1 by Eliot Mercy

Know More

The first novelette in the Apocalypse Memoirs series. Bob is a 40-ish ne’er-do-well living in the city when the world ends, but it isn’t your standard Armageddon. Bob soon finds out that the demons and angels battling in the skies are just an opening act for The Mandate, a cabal of malevolent beings who’ve arrived to chaperone humanity to its ultimate judgment. Bob is your hapless guide and would-be hero down the Path of Absurdity in this dark, satirical farce, which features a motley squad of bad-ass warriors, an ill-tempered sulphur beast, and one giant pigeon.




A Word from the Author

photo Author Eliot MercyIt is difficult for me to describe what led me to create the world of The Apocalypse Memoirs. I believe it came out of the frustrations of trying to make my writing better. I felt constricted by my attempts at technique and craft, and needed a place where I could just send an alienated, self-loathing character caroming around a pinball machine of absurd situations. I think of it as a pulp playground, where I can be as ridiculous, as irreverent, and as disturbing as I wish…and keep as far as possible from my exhausting self-criticism. It’s a fun place to romp.
