It’s been a while since I’ve read a good old-fashioned 1980s-style World War III apocalypse story, something along the lines of Threads or The Day After in book form. I figure that if you’re reading this, then you’re probably a fan of the genre, so might have some recommendations for me.
I’m kind of in the mood for something more focusing on the war itself than the post-apocalypse; something with B-52s, ICBMs, nuclear bombs going off around the world, and the Soviet Union as the bad guys. I’ve read Alas, Babylon too recently, but it’s been a while since I’ve read Trinity’s Child (later made into the movie By Dawn’s Early Light), so that one might do. Or there’s always Failsafe; I’ve loved it every time I’ve read it.
But I’d really like to find something new that I haven’t read before, so if any of you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them in the comments.
