In 2020, the Third World War began. No one knows who started it, but North Korea, or Iranian-sponsored terrorists were the most likely suspects. Whoever caused it, it was the end of the Modern Era. Step into this dystopian nightmare. An Atomic World War III destroyed most of the American civilization. Then the world returned to a more primitive society, one in which the middle class no longer existed and only the poor and the rich now inhabited the Earth. Nuclear fallout and gangs of mutants made the surface uninhabitable at night. The story takes place in post World War III Chicago, where the surface of America is now uninhabitable by all but mutants and the three floating cities of Sanatorium, Palladium and Gymnasium are all that is left of America shores and three floating cities of Reagan, Nixon and Kennedy float on the ocean’s surface. For years after the Third World War, the U.S. Government became more and more ineffective, so that it gradually turned over all functions to a huge corrupt private FEAR Corporation. Then, FEAR a seemly beneficent entity began a constant bombardment of propaganda, gradual starvation, kidnapping slaves, and the introduction of RAGE, a highly addictive and dangerous drug, which intensifies people’s fears, and is used to enslave the poor by FEAR Corporation seeking to remain in power. In addition, FEAR began segregating people into FEAR colors and FEAR camps. They began taking an occasional citizen’s child, a Five Year, from their biological parents, and adopted by affluent citizens, never to be seen again by their real families. A young boy becomes traped on a starship full of giant spiders. The book comes to a final thrilling climax that will excite even non-science fiction fans.
