Overview

The Nebula Recommendee Novel. When civilization comes to an end, life struggles on in remote Hickory Hollow, Texas. The electricity may have failed, but Zack, Jim, Sukie, Mom Allie, Carl, Carol, Sim, Elmond, Grace and the others simply go on by torch and candle light. If radio and television are gone, they entertain themselves with yarns, music, dances. But there are two serpents in this new Eden: their own human nature and the murderous Unger clan that lives just beyond the hollow. Here is a epic of the human spirit that only the author of <I>Warlock's Gift, Soul-Singer of Tyrnos</I>, and <I>The Black Tower</I> could have written. Ardath Mayhar has won and been nominated for nearly two dozen awards within and without the science fiction field.

A lot of characters to keep track of, but the story is a good one bringing community members to help one another during a catastrophe. I think it should have been longer though and I didn't really understand why members of a rural area would move towards the cities when they could feed themselves off the land, but the characters in this book stayed in the relatively deserted rural area and met up with unsavory characters and bad weather. Overall, a pretty good read.

A bit different than your average end of the world novel. This one was a sort of Mother Earth News version. A more country, little less rock and roll than the norm for this genre.

Reminiscent of "Earth Abides" and "Alas, Babylon". A bit heavy on the cliched and overdone DYI "happy without civilization crowd" as well it's depiction of post-apocalyptic "government/authority" figures but still a fun read.
