 Автор: DuBois Richard


After discovering his wife’s infidelity, mild mannered adjunct professor Phillip Crane and his wife, Gwen, try to save their marriage with a trip to an upscale resort on a remote island. The tropical isle is paradise on earth, but when an EMP blast knocks out the power Phillip realizes how easily heaven can turn to hell. The stakes for Phillip rise as the resort becomes a fortress besieged by bands of murderous islanders. Within the resort, dangers mount when one of the other guests becomes a ruthless tyrant who covets Gwen for himself. Caught between brutal dictatorship and bloody anarchy, Phillip must fight alone for the woman he loves and for the light of humanity.

Обложка книги Level 7 Level 7

 Автор: Roshwald Mordecai

 Серия:


■ HE WAS GOING

■ DOWN,

■ DOWN,

■ DOWN…

■ 4000 feet into the earth,

■ never to return!


Level 7 is the diary of Officer X-127, who is assigned to the country’s deepest bomb shelter housing important military personnel and equipment. For security reasons those who go down, stay down.

Four thousand feet away from sunshine, Level 7 is considered secure from the most devastating attack and has been prepared to be self-sufficient for five hundred years. Marriages are made in this inverted heaven; food is taken in the form of pulp and pills. All is ordained by the god Loudspeaker which, unseen and omnipresent, voices commands for the good of its creatures.

The duty of Officer X-127 is to stand guard at the Pushbuttons, a machine devised to rocket instant atomic destruction toward the enemy. There are pushbuttons 1, 2, 3, and 4. Pushbutton 4 is final, complete, total devastation.

“Powerful, deeply imaginative, haunting…. The best comment there has been so far on the ghastly imbecility of nuclear armaments.”

—J.B. PRIESTLY

“No one can read Level 7 without feeling its gravest warning.”

—N.Y. Herald Tribune

“This story gives the most realistic picture of nuclear war that I have read in any work of fiction.”

—Linus Pauling

Originally published in 1959, and with more than 400,000 copies sold, this powerful dystopian novel remains a horrific vision of where the nuclear arms race may lead and is an affirmation of human life and love. Level 7 merits comparison to Huxley’s A Brave New World and Orwell's 1984 and should be considered a must-read by all science fiction fans.

“Eventually, I believe, Roshwald’s remorseless apocalypse will be recognized as one of the masterpieces of anti-utopian literature.”

—H. Bruce Franklin

Mordecai Roshwald is professor emeritus of humanities at the University of Minnesota and a visiting professor at many universities worldwide.

 Серия: The Coming Collapse


The latest survivalist thriller from the New York Times bestselling author and founder of survivalblog.com gives readers an unprecedented look into a post-apocalyptic world resulting from an all-too-real disaster scenario.

When looting and rioting overwhelm all the major US cities, Afghanistan War vet Ray McGregor makes his way from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to his parents’ cattle ranch in Bella Coola, British Columbia, in remote western Canada. Joining him is his old friend Phil Adams, a Defense Intelligence Agency counterintelligence case officer based in Washington State.

Reckless banking practices, hyperinflation, and government negligence have led to an unprecedented socioeconomic collapse in America that quickly spreads throughout the world. Lightly populated Bella Coola is spared the worst of the chaos, but when order is restored it comes in the form of a tyrannical army of occupation. Ray and Phil soon become key players in the resistance movement, fighting the occupiers in a war that will determine not only their own personal survival, but also the future of North America.

Liberators depicts a world that is all too conceivable and terrifyingly familiar. Fastpaced and packed with authentic information on outdoor survival, self-sufficiency, and small-unit tactics, James Wesley, Rawles’s latest thriller will resonate with his dedicated fanbase and encourage new readers to prepare for anything from lesser disasters to the dreaded worst-case scenario.
