Anderson Atlas is an author and illustrator in Arizona

I’m an author / illustrator and have been since I was a wee babe. My days consist of sitting around the fire, recounting epics of giants and hidden fairies while exploring the sacred mountains east of the moors. I’ve crossed the forbidden boundaries, explored the dark dungeons, and returned to tell the tales.

Young Adult Books for 13 - 16yrs old

A dark book about a brutal alien dictator and his downfall. He’s Lex Luthor mashed with a Xenomorph and a Skeksis, this story is otherworldly and so satisfying.

Jibbawk rises to dominate the planet Lan Darr. He rules with an iron fist and without mercy, building his empire larger and faster than all other Shadic planets. But it isn’t enough. He dreams of becoming one of the fabled Immortal Rulers, no matter the cost. Only when resistance comes from the least likeliest place, a teenager from Earth, does he see his authority challenged.

Novel for New Adults (18 and up )

Ian commits treason and genocide but under a veil of manipulation from a man called Zilla. Others play their parts as well, unleashing a virus that spreads faster than the US government thought possible. Hana the officer. Isabella the bodyguard. Ben the bum. Tanis the hacker. Markus the priest. This crew of unwitting agents-of-destruction is saved, brought together by circumstance, each hiding their shame like a burrowed time bomb. But why save the six guilty murderers?

The madness of the panicked crowds and dying victims leave a swath of destruction that overflows the quarantine boundaries–another setup from the mastermind, Zilla. He’s thought of everything. Or has he?

One by one, the victims rise to their feet, still dead and rotting but inside their bodies is a new puppet master. A parasite, bound to spread its genes to every other living creature on Earth. Zilla’s plan to remake the world after his premeditated apocalypse comes to a terrifying halt.

Dive deep into The Last Virus, Fools’ Apocalypse Part 1. Discover the conspiracy. The fate of the Earth is darker than anyone imagined. Check out the reviews. You will love this character-driven story!
