Synopsis:

The thing about the end of the world is...

It doesn’t end. Trent Sheets goes on a long bender in the woods and wakes up to discover most of humanity is dead. Trent expects zombies, ghosts, or crazed vigilantes. Instead he faces nothing but vast space and mind-blowing silence. Striking out for home, the man least likely to survive the apocalypse crashes several cars, escapes packs of wild dogs, meets dying remnants of humanity, loses the only healthy woman around, picks up a very unhealthy teen, Kateland Owle, jams at the last radio station, finds one thriving town that kicks him out, and finally comes home to Southern California—a land of sunny beaches, unchecked wildfires, and unlimited booze. Kateland teaches Trent how to survive while he keeps her alive; together they flip the lights on for the future.

Brian Railsback has taken the bleakest of human scenarios and within it found decency, and hope. A Going Concern is an excellent novel that deserves a large and appreciative audience. — Ron Rash, author of Serena
