Synopsis: An ER nurse on the run may have the key to stopping an extraterrestrial takeover of the United States.

More background: The Journey of St. Laurent is the sequel to Oasis.

Special Note – Final Version now available!

Yes, I’ve password protected most of these. The final version of the book is now available at major ebook retailers (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, etc). What you see posted here was only the first draft. Enough has changed (hopefully for the better) that I’m slightly embarrassed to leave it all visible to the public. I’ll leave the first few chapters visible, but if you check out the “sample” feature at the various ebook retailers, you’ll read finished work rather than first draft.

    Until now, I have been able to read your work whenever I wanted, but now that I have caught up with the other readers, I have to wait painfully…
    :)

    WOW, I foound both your stories through the Zombie Central Forum through AR15.com and WOW is all I have to say! Fantastic writing! I especially liked where Corbin repeatidly had problems finding safe haven and I found it to be oh so true of those events!

    I found Oasis after finishing AS THE WORLD DYES (Book 2) by R. Frater on my Kindle2. Ms Frater’s zombie novel was so good I was looking for another zombie novel equally as good. Oasis, on my Kindle2, is amazing. It’s wall to wall action. I truly enjoyed the story. It was so good I overlooked the grammer and other errors. When a story is this good, I could care less about the minor errors.

    I’m eagerly awaiting Oasis 2 on my Kindle 2. I don’t want to read your chapters on my computer. I’m hoping to see it on amazon soon.

    It’s very hard to want to continue reading this story when we wait FOREVER between releases. I’m only bitching a little because it is free….but please…..please….hurry up. I’m going crazy waiting!

    Thanks

  6. Sleepin, November 11, 2009:

    Ok, Seriously….we have waited long enough. Don’t write a serial if you don’t have the F*ucking time to keep the releases up to date. This is b/s and i think someone should let you know it. Bullsh*t.

    Sleepin… Chill out dude and please watch the language. You cant complain about free stuff. Bryce is a busy guy I’m sure. Yes its a cool story and yes its frustrating to wait for new chapters. But its kind of cool too in a way. I check every day to see if theres something new. If there is, Woo Hoo I’m happy, if not then ya I’m bummed a bit but I realize that there’s probably a good reason why there is nothing new posted. In the mean time if you havent already read some of the other fully completed online novels out there, I might suggest some of my favorites. Plague Zone, Monster Island, Monster Nation, and Monster Planet by David Wellington are really good. I also am enjoying End Times – 2005 by Scarecrowster on Livejournal, and Dead Meat by Patrick & Chris Williams, but both are the same as Oasis II in that they are incomplete and you have to wait for new chapters. All in all its free and its fun so chill and enjoy it for what it is. Russ

    Wow sleepin, if all you have to worry about is bryce making new stories then you have one pathetic of a life. Get a job/woman/hobby or something that just shuts your stupid mouth loser.

    First off Bryce, Keep up the exellent work. Your story is incredible. Russ if you are still around thanks for the heads up on “End Times” another good read.

  14. Gerald Andrews, July 13, 2010:

    I like the idea of this fictional story. It is just like watching a sci-fi movie.

  15. Armando, December 25, 2011:

    I’ve kept up with this book since it was first posted online on a site I cannot recall, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
