Will It Wasteland?
This site is dedicated to the vehicles that keep on going when everything else is gone.
After the fall of modern civilization (or when traveling far outside of it), a vehicle is more than just a way to get from Point A to Point B. Post-apocalyptic literature and the carefully-tended vehicles surviving far from their points of origin show that in the absence of superhighways, suburbs and repair shops, our vehicles become shelters, lifelines and even tools for self-expression. Just like our pets, out in the wasteland our cars begin to look like us, and vice versa.
The post-apoc, Road-Warrior aesthetic is equal parts function and artistry. Expedition vehicles, extreme 4x4s, hot rods and the hybridized cars of films like Mad Max: Fury Road all show a similar blend of purposeful evolution, of adapting to survive adverse conditions. Some cars and trucks succumb: others overcome. They survive with their souls intact, or they develop new ones.
At this site, you’ll find cars, trucks and motorcycles the fit that post-apoc aesthetic, from concept vehicles to custom cars to real people’s everyday drivers. Modern cars will also get looked at through an apocalyptic lens, because hey, after it all comes apart, you might just have to make do with whatever you can find!

Given the power over the undead in an England overrun with zombies, how far will one man go to get his inheritance back?
Byron Ulysses Llewellyn-Cave is a disinherited cad with the strange ability to control the undead corpses that have been plaguing steampunk Victorian England for years. He finds Marietta, a bird-watcher and assassin extraordinaire, and together they calamitously careen through a zombie-parts black market, fight a swashbuckling Spaniard who’s allergic to the walking dead, and outwit a mad scientist trying to restore life to the ramshackle corpses.
All in the pursuit of a bounty given by Victoria herself that will make all of Byron’s problems go away.
Long live Byron the Cad. The Cad is dead.
Emmy Jackson – Author
I am a writing-person; not for any noble or world-changing reasons, but because the words run around and around in my head and if I don’t let them fall out, they drown everything else out. The most obvious evidence is my Empty Cradle post-apocalyptic book series, of which two are written and the third is on the way. In addition, I have been a freelance automotive writer for sixteen years, because I am also a car person. There are five cars currently in the driveway and four of them are ongoing projects, and all of them are awesome.

Five vampire novels, a graphic novel, some short fiction, and numerous ghost-written books later, I’m still here. In the meantime I’ve had some adventures and met a lot of great people, artists and writers, mostly.
