The post-apocalyptic future Earth is unkind to the masses. It’s little like Kevin Costner’s ill-fated Waterworld and Mad Max: Fury Road, well kind of. The world is more of a mix between anime Garganita on the Verdurous Planet without the mechas and Brian Wood’s comic The Massive as an environmental disaster destroys most of the Earth. Land dwelling places to live are scarce the exception of mega-cities or large ship-cities that rule the seas. And the internet is run by one gatekeeper, this is the first novel by author Ren Warom – Escapology.
When we started Retrenders a few years back with a couple of friends, we shared a vision of creating a cool magazine-style blog about urban fashion, geeky subjects, and just about anything that we had a deep interest in. It’s been a daunting but rewarding task to be a part of ever since, but since that the Internet and information in general is constantly growing in size, we’ve always thought wouldn’t it be great to meet and work with like-minded people to cover more of what’s out there in the world?
While working on a film project, I had the pleasure of meeting the great group of people over at Nerdstalker.com. Nerdstalker, based in the Bay Area also, covers new and emerging tech startups, up and coming websites, and anything important in the tech world. With a shared vision of covering more stories in our world, it is with great pleasure to announce that Retrenders and Nerdstalker will be partnering up and working together in the months ahead!
