When all is lost, there's always the future. But the future in a world shrouded in the radioactive red dust clouds of a generation-old global nuclear war depends on finding hidden caches of food, weapons and technology--the legacy of a preholocaust society--stashed in lonely outposts known as redoubts. When Ryan Cawdor discovers a redoubt in the bitter freakish wasteland that now passes for Alaska, he also uncovers a new threat to a slowly reemerging America.

What if the world reverted to a primitive state, with just enough leftover high-tech hardware to make the shoot-em-ups sizzle? That's the premise in the Deathlands series, in which Ryan Cawdor and his band of misfits "jump" in a sort of Star Trek-transporter way from spot to irradiated spot in a U.S. decimated by the Third World War--which was lost by every country on earth 100 years earlier. Having read at least a dozen books in this series, I wasn't sure I could get into an abridgment but was pleasantly surprised. McCallister reads with authority, and the pace feels just right--I actually picked up details I'd missed in my own first reading. For anyone who likes the after-the-end-of-the-world-then-what? genre, this series is a must. M.C. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
