American Cities in Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction Book Review:

Visions of the American city in post-apocalyptic ruin permeate literary and popular fiction, across print, visual, audio and digital media. American Cities in Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction explores the prevalence of these representations in American culture, drawing from a wide range of primary and critical works from the early-twentieth century to today. Beginning with science fiction in literary magazines, before taking in radio dramas, film, video games and expansive transmedia franchises, Robert Yeates argues that post-apocalyptic representations of the American city are uniquely suited for explorations of contemporary urban issues. Examining how the post-apocalyptic American city has been repeatedly adapted and repurposed to new and developing media over the last century, this book reveals that the content and form of such texts work together to create vivid and immersive fictional spaces in ways that would otherwise not be possible. Chapters present media-specific analyses of these texts, situating them within their historical contexts and the broader history of representations of urban ruins in American fiction. Original in its scope and cross-media approach, American Cities in Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction both illuminates little-studied texts and provides provocative new readings of familiar works such as Blade Runner and The Walking Dead, placing them within the larger historical context of imaginings of the American city in ruins.

Fourteen years have passed since the virus ripped through the global population, crushing the modern world and leaving the cities crawling with the infected. The immune who survived the violence of the collapse fled to remote havens like Balmorhea, a tiny town in the desert of far West Texas. There, a few hundred normals made a go of it, building walls, farming the dry dirt, and learning to thrive together.

Distrusted and despised because of what they are, they're still the first to fight when the hordes maraud out of the wastes. Now, a new menace is lurking beyond the horizon, threatening to destroy everything they've built. Will they survive the savage violence sweeping across the desert, or will they be consumed by the FIRESTORM?

Zombies Are Human (Books 0 - 3): The Complete Post-apocalyptic Box Set Book Review:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jamie Thornton. Character-driven zompoc. A thrilling science fiction series... ...Once upon a time a plague ended the world. Four tough, young women. A zombie apocalypse (or two) with a serious twist. When a new virus unleashes violence that devastates eighteen-year-old Corrina's neighborhood, all Corrina can think about is surviving. But when the boy she loves is kidnapped by a group of government soldiers, she must team up with a strange group of street kids to save him. You’ll love this terrifying sci-fi plague apocalypse, because the best ones have twists you never see coming. ***For a limited time, grab the complete series at a substantial discount.*** The omnibus edition includes all FOUR books in the Zombies Are Human series from New York Times bestselling author Jamie Thornton. Nearly 1000 pages of thrills and apocalyptic science fiction. Grab the box set and save over 50% compared to buying the books individually. Interview with the Author Q - What makes the Zombies Are Human series special? An epidemic ravaging the human population. A world spiraling into chaos. People doing whatever it takes to survive. I've always been drawn to the post-apocalyptic genre and wrote Zombies Are Human with all of the end-of-the-world books I’ve loved in mind. Big epidemics and events that reinvent the world are so thrilling. I also love getting into some of the science, like the genetic engineering, that would make the situations plausible. Zombies Are Human gives you some of that classic Walking Dead zombie fare, but...without giving too much away...I guarantee you've never read a zombie series like this before. Smart. Dangerous. Gritty. With rip-your-heart-out intensity (literally and figuratively in some cases).

Medallion Honoree Finalist in the 2018 Wishing Shelf Book Awards For Adult Fiction Top 10 Finalist in the Author Academy Awards for Sci-Fi/Fantasy Fiction "Fear is normal, Indra, it is what you do with that fear that determines if you are strong or weak." One set, three books! Get the entire emotionally gripping and action-packed Outliers Saga in one set! *************************************************** Book One: Outliers In the dusty ruins of the world, three groups exist: the Sovereign, the Fortis, and the Outliers. Indra is an Outlier. Living on land that has not healed from the poison of the past, the Outliers have adapted - but to the Sovereign and the Fortis, they are nothing. For centuries the Fortis have made their abuse of Outliers a sport, but when Asa comes to Indra's rescue, she sees something different in him. Something that marks him as so much more than just a Fortis guard. But when Indra's world begins to unravel, even the quiet alliance she and Asa have formed cannot save her from the wrath of the Sovereign. In one life-altering moment, everything Indra has ever known is ripped away, forcing her to face a world even more harsh and unforgiving. Broken and scarred, Indra finds herself on a journey that will challenge everything she's ever been taught, learning along the way that she's stronger than she ever imagined. Maybe even strong enough to free her people forever. *************************************************** Book Two: Uprising Returning to Sovereign City after everything that was stolen from her is something Indra never thought she would do. Despite the scars she wears both inside and out, left there at the hands of the Sovereign and the Fortis, she is determined to save her people from oppression, even if it means putting her own safety at risk. But it isn’t long before she once again finds her world shattering around her. As the dust settles, Indra manages to find strength among the ruins, and she sets out on a quest to unite the four Outlier tribes, hoping to take their enemies down once and for all. *************************************************** Book Three: Retribution With the Outliers united and the Fortis eliminated, Indra thought she was nearing the end of her journey. Instead, Asa went into the city only to be captured and the Sovereign decided to unleash the full power of their technology. Now, bleeding and separated from her husband, facing a traitor and an uncertain future, Indra finds herself wondering if she united the Outlier tribes simply so the Sovereign could destroy them more effectively. With vile characters, brutal conditions, and vicious creatures, the final chapter in the Outliers Saga will take readers on an unforgettable journey. Follow Asa and Indra as they fight to start a life together while facing impossible choices that will test their limits and show them what sacrifice, forgiveness, and love really mean.

Earth Has Fallen The Complete Series Book Review:

The COMPLETE 5 book Earth Has Fallen series in one box set! Nuclear Armageddon left the planet in ashy ruins. When a man leaves the safety of the underground, will he survive the peril that awaits him above? Seventeen-year-old Loreto Riker has never known life outside a bunker. After an atomic war thrusts the world into an eternal winter, the descendant of the survivors accepts an exploratory mission to search for others on the ravaged surface. But the treacherous task quickly turns deadly when he's attacked by radioactively deformed flesh-eaters. Desperately evading the mutant cannibals, Loreto pairs up with a sword-wielding woman on the run from the foul creatures. But when he makes a shocking discovery, he fears a much greater threat looms amongst the corrupted remnants of the apocalypse... Includes: Loreto: An Earth Has Fallen short story Return from Darkness Conflict Rising Return to the Surface New Frontier What readers are saying: ***** "Having witnessed ww1 and ww11 which used less destructive war machine this world was III seem to have taken thing to the next level wide spread use bomb which leaves trails of destruction millions of loves are lost. One group goes underground while some remains behind to face reality head on by shear luck the survive the lethal rays. " ***** "The characters are written in such a way that I was worried along with them. I definitely don't believe in the apocalypse ?! And in the salvation of all mankind as a super-hero? For such a story, you definitely need a continuation in the form of a series, which the author actually did. It will not be boring!" ***** "This book is adventurous, entertaining, and thought-provoking. I was gripped throughout. The world is real enough to be believable, but at the same time fantastical enough to be intriguing." ***** "I don't usually read post-apocalyptic books but I'm glad I got to read this one. The storyline and characters have been well thought out and I look forward in getting to know the characters more in the next book." ***** "With as many books as I have read over the years, it is rare for me to find a true can't-put-down read. I was up until 4 a.m. when I blearily realized that I had read the book straight through in one sitting. The lost sleep was well worth it. Peter Servidio has a distinctive writing style that uses the history of war and real-world nuclear capabilities to create a frighteningly credible tale of 'what-might-be.' Add to that a taste of H.P. Lovecraft, a dash of Stephen King, and a (small) bit of Tolkien and you have a novel comprised of consummate world-building and detail." ***** "It's an opening book into a series and is fast paced and easy to read. In this story instead of the population escaping to an orbiting city the principle protagonists live underground. It's told in first person and the jumping off point occurs when a small group sets out to return a newly discovered person to her village. They discover something there that could be a boon to everyone." ***** "The story is engaging and exciting as you follow Loreto, a young explorer from the mine community. It has some of the standard post-apocalyptic elements (scavenging, roving mutants, surviving communities at odds) but the author does a good job telling his story and setting up the sequel. It has shades of The Road, Daybreak 2250 A.D., and The Last She." ***** "This book jumps right in, which I appreciate. The author did a very good job of providing background information before going into the present day. This is one of those books that you cannot put down. It leaves you wanting more. The author was very imaginative. Yet, the plot was realistic. If you're looking for an exciting read, definitely check out this book."

The Last Book Review:

This propulsive post-apocalyptic thriller “in which Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None collides with Stephen King’s The Shining” (NPR) follows a group of survivors stranded at a hotel as the world descends into nuclear war and the body of a young girl is discovered in one of the hotel’s water tanks. Jon thought he had all the time in the world to respond to his wife’s text message: I miss you so much. I feel bad about how we left it. Love you. But as he’s waiting in the lobby of the L’Hotel Sixieme in Switzerland after an academic conference, still mulling over how to respond to his wife, he receives a string of horrifying push notifications. Washington, DC, has been hit with a nuclear bomb, then New York, then London, and finally Berlin. That’s all he knows before news outlets and social media goes black—and before the clouds on the horizon turn orange. Two months later, there are twenty survivors holed up at the hotel, a place already tainted by its strange history of suicides and murders. Jon and the rest try to maintain some semblance of civilization. But when he goes up to the roof to investigate the hotel’s worsening water quality, he is shocked to discover the body of a young girl floating in one of the tanks, and is faced with the terrifying possibility that there might be a killer among the group. As supplies dwindle and tensions rise, Jon becomes obsessed with discovering the truth behind the girl’s death. In this “brilliantly executed...chilling and extraordinary” post-apocalyptic mystery, “the questions Jameson poses—who will be with you at the end of the world, and what kind of person will you be?—are as haunting as the plot itself.” (Emily St. John Mandel, nationally bestselling author of Station Eleven).

The Folk of the Fringe Book Review:

In Orson Scott Card's classic apocalyptic science fiction novel The Folk of the Fringe, only a few nuclear weapons fell in America--the weapons that destroyed the nation were biological and, ultimately, cultural. But in the chaos, the famine, the plague, there existed a few pockets of order. The strongest of them was the state of Deseret, formed from the vestiges of Utah, Colorado, and Idaho. The climate has changed. The Great Salt Lake has filled up to prehistoric levels. But there, on the fringes, brave, hardworking pioneers are making the desert bloom again. A civilization cannot be reclaimed by powerful organizations, or even by great men alone. It must be renewed by individual men and women, one by one, working together to make a community, a nation, a new America.
