Short answer: yes.

Slightly longer answer: There will be at least one more book, a sequel to HIGH VOLTAGE. There will probably be a fifth and final book after that, depending on where that fourth book ends up. There may be even more after that, but they would be with a new set of characters.

As for stories, right now only three tie directly into the EA books, but a good number of them take place in the same universe (at least as far as I'm concerned). So, yeah, there will probably be more stories too, but, again, probably with different characters.

And now to make the answer even longer: The three tie-ins are "By Any Other Clock," which takes place during the first apocalypse (http://untowardmag.com/2012/05/05/by-... "Night of the Living," which takes place during the Zombie Holocaust that ended the world for the sixth time (http://www.jerseydevilpress.com/?page... and "Great Balls of Fire," which takes place between Exponential Apocalypse and Dead Presidents (http://www.egumeny.com/writing/books/...).

I Will Rot Without You by Danger Slater
"I can't objectively review my own book, even though I feel it's important that you all understand that I am a LITERARY GENIUS OF THE HIGHEST CALIBER. So here are a few choice blurbs from people and publications that have read (and loved) I Will Ro..." Read more of this review »
Exponential Apocalypse by Eirik Gumeny
"From beginning to end, this book was unpredictable and amusing. Even though I'd read the 4th book in the series first, and therefore I knew which characters would survive, I also knew that there are no guarantees when reading one of Eirik Gumeny's..." Read more of this review »
Revenge-aroni by Eirik Gumeny
"While pretty entertaining overall, Revenge-aroni is still a mess of a story. The humor makes it worth reading, but it's probably better to start with the first book of the series it's a part of, Exponential Apocalypse. Personally, I found this one..." Read more of this review »

“Calvin pulled the other end of the shower curtain open and stepped out of the shower, rubbing his eyes with one hand and reaching for his towel with the other. Only, instead of a towel, he found Jesus. Shaving.”
Eirik Gumeny, Devil Went Down to Jersey

“The author waives all liability should you keep reading after you've already decided you're going to hate it.”

“I think it can be tremendously refreshing if a creator of literature has something on his mind other than the history of literature so far. Literature should not disappear up its own asshole, so to speak.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Palm Sunday: An Autobiographical Collage

“Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.”
