About this deal

Divided States of America: The survivors, living in and around California's San Joaquin Valley, all make jokes about the five announcements they've received over short-wave radio, each proclaiming a different person President of the United States.

If I had bowed my head on my breast, as I have held it high, The kite that whistles above us now were gorged till she could not fly. Jive Turkey: Most of the African-American characters sound like they stumbled out of a 1970s blaxploitation film. It's the future, scaled down to the bare minimum after trawling the dirt and praying to make it through one winter.There should be a name for the particular type of book that is exemplified by some popular novels published between the late 1950s and the early 1980s.

One of Earth's possible destruction through a "Dinosaur killer" comet that might or might not hit the planet.There’s the rich, eccentric discoverer of the comet, a documentary film maker, a senator, his daughter, a preacher, a secretary, a power plant executive, a stalker, the leader of a burglary ring, a mail carrier, various astronauts-in-training (of all of these, there are two black men, two white women and one Russian woman represented, and just guess who the secretary and the burglar represent)… I discovered there was a good reason for a list of characters at the beginning of the book. He would have been able to ride that wave as far as it took him (several miles inland) had it not been for an inconveniently placed apartment building. Never mind that billions of people are dead and the good guys have effectively organized themselves into a feudal holding. The story kept moving and the various threads set up at the start of the story were woven into a believable whole towards the end. I read this book shortly after it came out in paperback about 30 years ago, and remember enjoying it.

Yes there was what happened in New Orleans after Katrina, but that behavior wasn't so common in other areas hit by Katrina. Any sort of link or text post is welcome as long as it is about printed / text / static SF material. Col Rick Delanty, a black astronaut, docking in Spacelab with two Soviet kosmonauts, Pieter Jakov and Leonilla Malik, M.Unstoppable Mailman: Not even Hammerfall is going to stop Harry the mailman from the completion of his appointed rounds. Odds grow shorter against the dirty snowball MISSING and actually hitting the Earth, scientists become less confident as the comet comes closer.
