Roger Hayden is a writer, prepper enthusiast, and all around book, film, and music lover. His first self-published series "The Decay," draws from some of his favorite books in the dystopian genre to include, "One Second After," "The Stand," "The Road," and George Orwell's "1984." His second series, "The Pulse," offers a different take of the EMP dystopian world portrayed in "The Decay," involving a tight-knit group of preppers responding to disaster. He is also a fan of science fiction genre and authors Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, and Philip K. Dick.

Roger currently resides in Knoxville with his wife Martha, and his two daughters, Emily and Meghan. He works as an editor and writer for a local Knoxville newspaper, his dream job come true, but he is also loves to write fiction. His most cherished time is spent writing in his family's cabin in the Great Smokey Mountains. Roger is a strong supporter of veteran's causes and education. He loves to cook, write, and go hiking. Above all, there is nothing more important to him than his family and his readers.

The Decay Omnibus is a real page turner. It needs a sequel however. Parts were a little hard to believe, but when you read books like this you suspend some reality for sure. It was great!

I'm sorry, it's just a train wreck of typos and formatting errors.. This book is in serious need of some developmental editing and line edits. At other times there are just plain factual errors. This book should be unpublished, reworked, and then republished before I could rate it any higher.

This starts out a little slow in the first few pages, but when it took off I found myself caught up in it to the point that I didn't want to put it down. A bombing on Wall Street starts all of it with people running for their lives. Paul with his step-daughter Juliet, head off to find Samantha, his wife, who is on a business trip in New York where the bombing took place. It has alot of editing problems; misused words, misspelled words, and words used incorrectly. I liked the story all the way up to the last couple of pages, where it just ends abruptly. I felt like the writer just got bored and wanted to end it quickly, and for me that just ruins the book.

The character development made me feel as if I were part of the story and I literally could not put the book down once I started reading!

don't spend your money on this one, contrived, poorly edited, and it would take infinite suspension of disbelief to digest - it all went bad once the protagonists left PA, and that happens very early - look elsewhere

From the first page, until the very end, I was enraptured with the trials and journeys of Paul, Julie and Samantha. Mr. Hayden did a remarkable job of character development and keeping this avid reader's interest.

The only reason I would give this work 4 stars and not 5 is as follows. About a third of the way through the novel, it appears that the editor had made digital notations for changes in usage. Therefore, there are sentences that were very awkward and felt like a "stumble" while I soaring through the novel. I only mention this in hopes that the author or editor might take a look and repair the sentences in question. This problem occurred for several chapters and then, was no longer a problem.

However, the writing and the plot line were so engaging that while I normally would close a book that became clumsy to read, I could not put this work down. Thank you, Mr. Hayden. I looke forward to reading the remainder of the series.

**Spoilers**

Sigh... I have a few problems with this book. First off...what did the "thugs" in the start of the story have to do with anything?? What a pointless story line that went nowhere. It could have easily been taken out of the book and made NO difference in the story at all. What happend to that old crazy "sister" lady? She dissapeered? Then what? You let a bad character escape to later bring them back into the story...not to just let them fade away. Then my biggest gripe...the ending. How awful! No resolution...nothing. Many people died in the blast, then the survivors trekked through a radiation filled wasteland with no health repurcussions? She just closes her eyes to rest? The only reason I gave this book 2 stars is because I did like the characters..
