THE ROURKE FAMILY. Were they larger than life survivors from another place in history with superior intellect and skills? Or just normal people who were determined to survive, who were led into the future by John Thomas Rourke, who always believed in planning ahead? Their story has been told before but never by one who fought beside them and dove into the future alongside them. Here is the story of JOHN THOMAS ROURKE. THE SURVIVALIST. THE MAN, told by Paul Rubenstein, a bespectacled, untrained nerd who partnered up with a seasoned professional who had prophesied the end of the world. Together they witnessed the ultimate death and destruction following the Night of the War. Together they helped build a new beginning, a new world, albeit a new world fraught with the same old problems. Paul Rubenstein was the common man: the Everyman. Common man to uncommon hero, this is his story of growth, friendship, valor and courage.

About the Author

Jerry Ahern (Axel Kilgore) is a science fiction and action author best known for his post-apocalyptic survivalist series The Survivalist. These pulp novels have sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide. He also authored the gut-wrenching, action packed series, "They Call Me the Mercenary" under the pseudonym Axel Kilgore. Along with his wife, Sharon, he is co-author of over eighty internationally-published novels.

Sharon Ahern originally born in Chicago a long time ago, met her future husband and co-writer, Jerry Ahern, on the very first day of High School, and they became friends for life. Sharon began her writing career in the public relations department of Illinois Bell Telephone and stringing for a local newspaper. Always an avid researcher, she was happy to pull out the Britannica (and later the Internet) and become an instant expert on whatever information Jerry needed for a story. Today she co-writes with Bob Anderson to continue the dramatic line of the popular Survivalist series.

Bob Anderson is the author of Sarge, What Now? and co-author on The Survivalist series (starting with Book #30) in collaboration with Jerry and Sharon Ahern. Bob is a fine writer and has published books such as TAC Leader: What Honor Requires, Anderson's Rules and Grandfather Speaks. He is an expert on weaponry and military skills and is an accomplished public speaker. Bob retired as a Chief Master Sergeant from the United States Air Force Reserve with over 32 years of service.
