Death of Civilization; Reclamation

( 2 )

Overview

Six years ago Civilization died under a hail of kinetic energy weapons, leaving the stunned survivors around the world to struggle through five years of almost continuous winter. Most people starved to death, many resorted to cannibalism but eventually starved to death anyway. Only a few survivors were prepared enough, strong enough, or ruthless enough, to survive the unending worldwide cold. Nobody survived unscathed.

Now, in the sixth summer after the war, the sun has ...

Overview

Six years ago Civilization died under a hail of kinetic energy weapons, leaving the stunned survivors around the world to struggle through five years of almost continuous winter. Most people starved to death, many resorted to cannibalism but eventually starved to death anyway. Only a few survivors were prepared enough, strong enough, or ruthless enough, to survive the unending worldwide cold. Nobody survived unscathed.

Now, in the sixth summer after the war, the sun has reappeared, the snow has departed and the weather appears to have become more normal. After giving profound thanks to God, for the first time in years the prepared survivors have been able to sow their fields and allow their herds to grow, while they prepare for what they have little doubt is coming.

What is coming are the other survivors, the ones that survived mainly by using human beings as cattle. For the most part they have no cattle, their fields are planted with old hybrid seed that will barely produce food and then only once. But what they do have is an abiding faith in Allah, the satisfaction of finally having an American Caliphate, a warrior culture, and weapons, many weapons.

The only way the Caliphate can grow and prosper is for them to take for themselves what the survivalists have. The only way for the survivalists to survive, is to protect what they have and they are more than willing to do so. The survivalists are also well armed and the General had hand-picked most of his men so they aren't teary-eyed, turn the other cheek, Christians but are warriors also.

Civilization has ended, but the fight for survival continues. Only all four of the horsemen of the Apocalypse have been riding throughout the world for the past six years and shall continue to do so. Conquest, War, Famine and Death now have a new deadly friend, Pestilence, only their new friend appears to be man-made and redefines the word deadly.

The saga continues. The survivors are also working desperately to stave off a new dark age while turning the light of civilization back on.

Most cities are now huge lakes, the coasts have been stripped to bedrock, and even the large amount of supplies the survivalists had stored is running short. They are also in a race against the Caliphate to secure whatever resources still exist that will help them to reclaim their nascent civilization.

Only the Caliphate wants more, much more. This is the time that Allah told the Prophet about. This is their opportunity to not only become the dominant religion in the world but the only religion.
They have the men, the weapons, and the will to dominate. The only thing standing in their way is a paltry few citizen survivors. With the will of Allah on their side how can they lose?

Of course, those paltry few citizen survivors have an entirely different opinion about the matter.

Meet the Author

I am a serious student of history, political, economic, military history, read copiously, often 2-3 books a week, and I have found this knowledge to be both a blessing and a curse. The blessing: I understand what I have read, and I prefer original sources. The curse: mankind is really doomed to repeat the same errors endlessly.
Do I take myself seriously? Not really, even though the characters I use in my books all have some basis in reality, I have found that the passions of youth really do mellow out as one gets older.
I do take great pride in using weapons and systems that either actually exist, or are theoretically possible. Also the combat situations I describe are as accurate as I can make them.
In my book Destruction of Civilization; The Apocalypse Begins the scariest part of writing it was seeing that the preconditions necessary for the story to actually happen were happening.
I have now completed the next volume in the Death of Civilization series, Death of Civilization; Reclamation.
The Death of Civilization continues with the novel I am currently hard at work on; Death of Civilization; Disaster!
Extinction Earth! was a very enjoyable book to write and I have started the next volume in this series also.
As a person, I am a grandfather of 3, a father of 2 boys and a girl, have been married to the same wonderful woman for 45 years, and have made, and lost, two fortunes, but have made my third, so I stopped while I was ahead.
If you have questions, suggestions, or whatever, my author e-mail is; nathanhalethewriter@aol.com.
I do try to check my mail daily but sometimes I forget because I'm having too much fun killing off a character or two.

    This sequel is as good as, or perhaps even better than, the first novel in the series. It takes the surviving characters in the first novel and continues their story into a terrible, desperate, future.
    I read the review by occasional blonde and had to laugh because even a tiny modicum of research would have shown that the theories this authors characters refer to all actually exist including the crustal shift theory by Hapgood whose books forward was indeed written by Albert Einstein.
    The destruction described is also consistent with the damages to be expected with a kinetic energy weapon that is the equal of a 40 megaton hydrogen bomb. I can understand why the author said he had to take a break from writing this excellent book because picturing the destruction was giving him nightmares.
    It's a great read and a brutal story. Even the religious overtones are to be expected if something of the magnitude covered in this series has happened. After all every survivor has lost family or friends to the war and its aftermath and faith helps to preserve sanity. Even if the times themselves are insane.
    I can't wait for the next volume in this series.

    This sequel wasn't bad but it drifted off to the absurd with claims of 5 collapses of civilization and gold tablets. It also got into christian mysticism. The recovery build out and human situations are interesting and probably as good as projections as any others. Good science fiction extrapolates while good science fantasy imagines. This book sort of hallucinates. The plot is loosely based on Larry Niven's Lucifer's Hammer. However the mass and kinetic energy of the toothpicks described in the book while adequate for bunker busting are nowhere nearly enough massive for the damage the author likes to describe.
