I am Writing a Book!

Updated: Jan 26, 2021


I will let you in on a little secret: For the past year-and-a-half I have been writing a 'semi-fictional' book, set in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R universe.

The working title of this book is 'The Chernobyl Zone Survival Guide - Everything a S.T.A.L.K.E.R Needs to Know to Survive the Zone'


"If 'The Zone' was real, could you survive it"?

"Would you know what physical and mental preparation you would need to do? Would you know what skills you would have to learn and where to go to learn them? Do you know what equipment you would need to take with you, what supplies, what weapons? Once you got there, would you be able to spot its many hazards, and would you know how to overcome them"?

All these questions and more are answered in the book. I aim to have it completed by the summer of 2018, and estimate it will be between 650 and 700 pages in length.

A sample can be read here.
