"Jason Gurley will be a household name one day." – Hugh Howey
(The Last Rail-Rider is a short story.)
He doesn't remember the days before the sickness.
He only knows the world since it went bad. The empty towns. The rusted-out cars. The corpses, everywhere.
He doesn't know why he rides the rails. He just does. The trains never take him away from the ruin. The trains never take him anywhere.
Until one day they carry him to a little town called Black Hole, Kentucky, and he meets a strange woman who knows him.
Who knows everything.
Jason Gurley is the author of the Kindle Worlds bestseller Greatfall, and the novels The Settlers, The Colonists and The Man Who Ended the World.
About the Author
Jason Gurley is the author of Greatfall, The Man Who Ended the World, The Settlers, The Colonists and Eleanor. Born in the squelchy bogs of Texas, then raised in the icy caves of Alaska, he relied on his imagination to keep him warm and dry. As a result, he firmly believes that Superman isn't Superman if he's not wearing red undies, and that Darryl Strawberry had the sweetest swing of all time. He may be the only man alive who believes both, and that's okay. Jason lives in Oregon with his family, and is a creative director in Portland. He can be found online at jasongurley.com, facebook.com/authorjasongurley and twitter.com/jgurley, and probably a few dozen other places, if you look hard enough.
