The world we know is gone, destroyed by greed and ignorance. On a post-apocalyptic Earth, centuries into the future, few have survived the Great War. Some have taken refuge deep inside a mountain. One of them, Willem, is exiled to the surface… Alone and struggling to survive, Willem embarks on an epic journey, making a discovery that could once again alter the future of humanity. Willem of the Tafel is an epic tale of survival, second chances, hope and undying love.
“PAKI, WELCOME to the council of three!” Mavuto greeted his newest colleague. As the oldest of the three council members, he automatically assumed the position of leader, and it fell to him to welcome their new member. Mavuto felt pride and accomplishment at his achievement. He was finally the leader of the council, an engineer, the only person to truly bring order to chaos. He had never really understood the ways of Madiba—the botanist who had recently passed away—and his constant, relentless focus on people’s wellbeing. For Mavuto, things were easy, and it was all down to maintenance and oiling the proper parts to keep the machine running smoothly. Surely society was a machine of sorts, and with the proper guidance from an engineer, it would run like any well-oiled machine.”

Hans M Hirschi (b. 1967) has been writing stories ever since he was a child. Adulthood and the demands of corporate life efficiently put an end to his fictional writing for over twenty years.
A global executive in training and channel development, Hans has traveled the world and had previously published non-fictional titles.
The birth of his son and the subsequent parental leave provided him with the opportunity to unleash his creative writing once again. With little influence over his brain’s creative workings, he indulges it, going with the flow.
A deeply rooted passion for, faith in a better world, in love, tolerance and diversity are a red thread throughout both his creative and non-fictional work. His novels might best be described as “literary romance, engaging characters and relevant stories that won’t leave you untouched, but hopeful.”
Hans is a proud member of the Swedish Writers’ Union and the Writers’ Center in Sweden.
