More anal weapon description banging grunting groaning splatting moaning screaming shouting zap kapow cheesy aural goodness from the ongoing journal of the Deathlands. Sweet. Or should that be savoury?

The fourth book shows our merry band of wayfarers still finding new and bewildering things in the Deathlands that I sure they would not rather have found in the first place. But they have the strangest way of becoming the savior's of the planet and they do not even know it most of the time.
Timothy Boyd
An average apocalyptic adventure story. This one takes a century after the last war and now there are mutants running around the earth. Recommended

This installment in the deathlands serious was a fun run through a society that devalues woman and overprizes cleanliness and strict rules.

It phased into a forward looking, sckewed view of destruction as the only solution to worldwide calamity.

It's a fun read with the usual bloodshed and action I have come to expect from Deathlands.

I really enjoy this series, but the books are difficult to find.

Post Apocalyptic setting with scifi elements, I really like the few of these books I've been able to find.
I'm a masochist, must be the reason I keep reading these...
