In the charnel pit that was once North America, survivors face their destiny. As for the rest of the world? Not mentioned. This was memorable with a lurid cover and something that is the ruin and enemy of creation wanders the wasteland bothering survivors with challenging behaviour. The survivors either descent into a litany of violence or find themselves in the unenviable position of fighting to survive. Post apocs are notoriously perilous and this is no exception as only a few people are compassionate or reasonable. Some take malignant glee in the ruins.
People are divided into good and bad camps and an evil thing wanders stirring the pot. Events come to a climax and this was wonderful and memorable. One wonders how do people hear through the malformation that is called Job’s Mask? How do the survivors get petrol, bullets, guns, food, vehicles and clothes during the 7 or so years this book covers?
