Coming Spring 2015 – “Tomorrow War” from J.L. Bourne



In this riveting, ultra-realistic novel from J.L. Bourne, a man struggles to survive after the US infrastructure collapses and martial law engulfs the streets of America.

In the not-too-distant future, during an unacknowledged mission inside the Syrian border, a government operative unwittingly triggers an incredible event that alters the course of society. A terrible weapon has been unleashed—a weapon that, left to run its course, will destroy the moral fabric of humanity.

In the midst of crisis, the population struggles to survive in a world short on vital resources. Inflation cripples the US economy and post-war armored military vehicles patrol the streets.

One man stands up to push back the overwhelming wave of tyranny triggered by the onset of nationwide martial law. How can he possibly succeed against a high tech and tyrannical enemy that is hell-bent on ripping liberty from the pages of future history?

From the author and military expert who brought readers the riveting horror series DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON, TOMORROW WAR is a compelling account of an alternate dystopian America located just down the tracks of oblivion.

    Sounds more like the anti-governement survivalist who justs dreams of killing people without evil government stopping him’s wet dream.

    Can still be a good book, i’m just irked by the “Ultrarealistic” qualificative.

      Spoken like a true statist. JLB is an active duty military officer, not retired. So much for your moronic theory about him. Do him a favor and don’t buy the new book. He wouldn’t want it in your hands anyway as he’s a stand up man that has served the United States for 20 years.


      • Enchilada says:

        Ya, you just made Canuck’s point.

        • Dairian says:

          How is that? You post makes no sense. Canuck only made 3 points:

          1. Sounds like an anti-government survivalist who dreams of killing people.

          2. Can still be a good book

          3. Personally irked by the term “Ultrarealistic”.

          1776 made a series of argumentum ad hominem statements about Canuck and one clarifier based on him being a military officer, along with assumptions regarding the author’s desire to have someone with this opinion purchase his novel.

          I can therefore only conclude that the one clarifier is the statement which as you say “made Canuck’s point”, which is, that active duty military officers are also government survivalists who dream of killing people. You should turn off your computer.

      • Canuck says:

        My judgement based on that short presentation was about the story and how part of the “survivalist” mindset appear to others, not the author himself, whose service I did not comment on.

        And by “to others” I do mean people that enjoy freedom and disaster preparedness, but for whom preparing for a disaster does not include working towards the worst possible outcome.

        Granted, “dream of killing people” might not be appropriate choice of words. “Looking forward to it” might be more suitable.

    • balais says:

      That is a bunch of asinine tripe.

      Go back to nintendo wii and sunday football, if “ultrarealistic” is too harsh for your sensibilities.

    The author is former USN (Commander, if I recall). The first part of Day by Day Armageddon was well done, though sustaining the narrative in the subsequent installments was a bit uneven. But overall, some good reading there. Based on the track record, and the scenario of the new novel, I’ve pre-ordered it.

    • DSM says:

      Yeah his first books were alright. They were before the zombie thing went mainstream and got stupid. As for the “anti government survivalist”, the post-apocalyptic genre is what he works in. That Tom Clancy fellow didn’t write any romance novels as far as I know.
      At the end of the day it’s all just works of fiction and meant for entertainment. These are the kinds of books you read on deployments and pass around to kill time.

    I liked DBDA and look forward to checking this out. Curious to read what the weapon is that targets the “moral fabric” of society.

  4. some_guy says:

    More proof that some preppers think in terms of fantasy and reality. They really give the self sufficiency community a bad name.

    • SSD says:

      It’s fiction guys. Not a “how-to” book. If your fiction were too realistic, it wouldn’t be fiction anymore.

      • Stan says:

        Agreed, the book is meant to be a fun read not a field manual

      • Canuck says:

        Precisely why I have an issue with qualifying works like this as “ultrarealistic”. Fiction in itself can be great, but fiction that does not assume its fictionality and pretends.. eh.

        I’m totally judging it by its cover (pun semi intended) tho, maybe I’m wrong.

        • SSD says:

          How about we let it come out before we pan it?

          • TominVA says:

            A fair-minded response but…nah, go ahead and judge. It’s compound porn. Plays to the darkest fantasies of the Hutaree. Maybe I’m wrong, but from the way it’s plugged, I don’t think so.

        • balais says:

          Its called plausibility

          Its not that fucking hard to understand. You make your fiction with a credible plot and imagery so that people have something to easily understand.

  5. m5 says:

    The ultrarealistic zombie apocalypse we all have been training for? I’m sure it’ll make good reading while waiting for it to happen.

  6. Jon Meyer says:

    The idiocy in here astounds me. When “ultra-realistic” is mentioned, it is referring to the probability of the scenarios that the plot is composed of. It would be wise to wait until you read it before you invalidate what is portrayed therein.

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

  7. balais says:

    it seems “ultra-realistic” has ruffled a few feathers.

    If fiction doesn’t have some element of realism attached to it (personally for me, its a high level of realism), i lose interest, because it is unrealistic and unrealizable.

    Its not that hard to understand.

    How in any way is this making “preppers”/”preparedness” people look bad?

  8. m5 says:

    Yes, yes, but why settle for ultra-realistic fiction when you can have hyper-true documentaries?
