"Alas, Babylon." Those fateful words heralded the
end. When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of
civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are
killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the
struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to
confront the darkness.
One of literature's first responses to the atomic bomb,
Mr. Adam is an artifact of classic science fiction—an equally biting
satire and ominous warning to society—that will resonate deeply with readers
today as it did when it was first published in 1946.
In Frank's classic 1951 war novel,
one-hundred-twenty-six soldiers commence their long, harrowing journey at
Changjin Reservoir during the height of the Korean War, but few will survive the
grueling fight and eventually reach Hungnam. Vividly bringing to life the
bravery, daring, and turmoil a unit of soldiers endures, Hold Back the
Night reveals their gripping stories....
A young teenage couple having a rendezvous one night on
a beach in Florida suddenly sees a submarine emerge from the ocean. Armed
soldiers disembark the vessel and a Buick drives off its landing ramp. For Henry
Hazen, who is scheduled to ship out to an army training camp the next day, the
sight leaves him uneasy, but he tells no one what he has witnessed.
classic of science fiction that is a cautionary tale of the dangers of nuclear
power, Forbidden Area is as timely today as it was when it was first
published in 1958.
