As Harry and the other residents of Orchard Close struggle to survive, a new crop of problems present themselves. Unstable electricity damages equipment, days are spent scavenging for ammo, weapons, food, glass bottles, and of all things, yarn. Elsewhere, gangs carve out their territory throughout the city. Residents pay for protection through coupons, barter or worse. Citizens fleeing the city gangs, violence and lack of food flock to Orchard Close, but how many can they take in?Worse, as time goes by, life changes from surviving to enduring. What’s the point of maths if you are going to starve to death? The peace is fragile with only a bullet away from having the whole world change again…and it does.

To help with the aftermath, Vance tried writing though without any real structure. As an editor and beta readers explained the difference between words and books, he tried again.Now he tries to type as often as possible in spite of the assistance of his cats, since his legs no longer work well enough to allow anything more strenuous.
