Chris Jackson, author of Scimitar Moon. I love the post apocalypse world the author has created, a nice mix of high tech and low tech. Good characters, flow and plot, too. The prose is easy to read.
The only problem I found in this books is probably idiosyncratic to me, and that was the nautical elements. There were a few glitches here and there that set my teeth on edge, but another reader (someone not so nit-picky about boats) might not have minded.
A good story.
Only reason it took me so long to read is that I'm into half a dozen other books right now, too...
