DESCRIPTION:

The “shocking [and] powerful” classic of postapocalyptic terror by the Nebula Award–winning author of The Iron Dragon’s Daughter (New York Daily News).

It’s been one hundred years since Three Mile Island went into full meltdown, filling the atmosphere with a radioactive poison that would contaminate the skies for hundreds of generations. Since then, the area around the island–now known as the Drift–has been a wasteland of disease and deformity, madness and monsters. It’s been one hundred years since humanity knew what order and hope were.

The Drift has a law unto itself–one of vampires and mutants and outcasts left to struggle for daily survival. Within its bounds, the simplest act–even asking the wrong questions–can mean death. Or worse.

Praised by George R. R. Martin as “a potent new myth from the reality of radioactive waste,” In the Drift is an inventive and unsettling look at the lives of those who are left to deal with the fallout of a nuclear disaster–a towering work of postapocalyptic fiction that provokes conversation and consideration even as it produces nightmares.

DESCRIPTION:

Twenty years from now a virus breaks out in a couple of Arctic naval bases, and then, even more strangely, inside the White House.

The guards become animated corpses, and rescue teams are rendered helpless by a mysterious trance effect.

Underpaid academic Dr. Weaver has documents that refer to something similar happening in the time of Christ, and a group of billionaires seek him out and immediately set him to work.

With the help of a super-hacker he tracks down a veteran who’s not susceptible to mind control. But Sean “Jester” Solberg is a wild card–an aggressive loner who lives with the immigrants outside the cities. The next recruit is even more unusual. Curtis Ferguson is the son of a couple of anthropologists and reportedly the world’s most powerful witch doctor.

Into this bizarre, dysfunctional group is thrust Jodie Goodwin, a down-to-earth Texan girl with exceptional shooting skills.

The newly formed team creep into the bunkers deep under the capital and encounter mankind’s ancient enemies. They end up fighting for survival and soon discover that their lives depend on the powers of the young, but untested, shaman.
