Walters, Eric

Entry updated 22 December 2020. Tagged: Author.

(1957-    ) Canadian teacher and author, most of his seventy or so Young Adult tales being nonfantastic, though he has begun in the twenty-first century to publish sf. The End of Days sequence, comprising End of Days (2011) Regenesis (2015), centres on a UFO-like scenario, the abduction by Aliens of the world's best Scientists, leaving their families to mourn; it is left to the young protagonists to save their families. In the sequel, an Asteroid strikes Earth, perhaps causing the End of the World, though a sixteen-year-old boy, captaining a Space Station with other survivors, may save the day. In the Rule of Three sequence beginning with The Rule of Three (2014), a worldwide shutdown of all electronics (including Computers and the internet) causes a sudden collapse of civilization; the narrative leaves the territory of tales like Stephen King's Cell (2006) as the young protagonist and his family find they must transform their suburban community into a defensive Keep in order to stay alive. These series may not break new ground, but they are competent and knowing. [JC]
