About the author:
A lifelong Northern Californian, S F Chapman traded his construction job for the more docile profession of novelist in 2008 when the economy faltered.

The tireless author has since written eight books. His first, "I'm here to help" (published by Striped Cat Press in July of 2012), is a literary fiction novella about a teenage daughter looking for answers to some troubling inconsistencies in her birth certificate. "The Ripple in Space-Time" (published by Striped Cat Press in February of 2013) is Chapman's second book. It is an exciting science fiction detective adventure set in a moldering and corrupt future controlled by greedy warlords.

Other completed works awaiting publication are the post-apocalyptic soft science fiction MAC Series consisting of "Floyd 5.136", "Xea in the Library" and "Beyond the Habitable Limit" and a recently completed sequel to "The Ripple in Space-Time" entitled "Torn From On High."

Chapman is currently writing a rough and tumble literary fiction novel about homelessness called "The Missive In The Margins."

On the Back of the Beast

Authored by S F Chapman
Edited by Mark S Chapman Ph.D., Christina E Chapman, Clinton D Anderson
Edition: 1

Everyone knew it was coming but no one was sure just when it would happen.

It had been over a hundred years since the last big earthquake had decimated the San Francisco Bay Area and another massive tremor was long overdue. The slumbering beast that is the Hayward Fault finally awoke on an ordinary October morning, catching the 7 million people of Bay Area by surprise as they tended to their routine affairs.

Will seventeen-year-old Kayla Hendley, airline pilot Burt Weaver, precocious second grader Gwen Mills and many others live through the convolutions of the angry earth? Surviving the savage pummeling will have more to do with blind luck than any careful preparations.

The lives of ordinary people will be forever changed by the colossal natural disaster that is The Beast.
