Editorial Reviews

Thomas Gaughan
Passionate readers need not fear Philip Roth's lament that fiction is dead, since the writer's imagination is outstripped each night by the evening news. Gleason has conjured up a postnuclear holocaust Islamic horde that has conquered Europe and Asia and is pushing inexorably through the American West. Only a rawhide, tough, old woman, and her unlikely allies--George Patton, Stonewall Jackson, Amelia Earhart, and an adolescent triceratops--stand in the way of the triumph of utter barbarism. Equal parts fantasy, historical fiction, sf, western, and morality play, this novel is sprawling, epic, cinematic, and a ripping good adventure yarn. Gleason is a former book editor and western novelist, and if he has forgotten anything about fashioning a book that will get widely read, the reader won't discover what it might be. All public libraries will want to put in an order.

Can it get any worse??? No. Robert Gleason has no clue how to write, much less how to write something that will interest you beyond the title page. I've read movie reviews that were more interesting than this entire book. Buy this book only for people you never want to speak to again.

Someone gave me this book and I still think I paid too much. Hopefully this will be the only book ever published by Robert Gleason.

i didn't like this book at all, sure it was easy enough to read and understand, but i couldn't really get into it. if your looking for a good read don't look here. p.s. don't let all the good reviews on the cover throw you off either.
