In an effort to explore the second half of “can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em,” this series of comic books by Brian K. Vaughan imagines a world without men. A mysterious plague picks off every male being on the face of the earth — except two: Yorick Brown, a young escape artist, and his pet monkey, Ampersand. With the exception of a few radicals who do their best to shut down any efforts to bring back the men, women across the world worry that their species is doomed. A scientist, meanwhile, insists that cloning has made men obsolete. Widely praised, this exploration of gender issues and scientific ethics (among other things) is being turned into a feature film slated for release in 2011.
I'd imagine that Time wants to make sure that all post-apocalyptic fiction is either completely irrelevant or something published 50 years ago. That's the only way to explain this list.
Hey, if you like post-apoc fiction, check out my book "The Walker in the Dust" on Google Books.
It's about one man who searches for meaning in the wasteland after the death of his wife. It's not wordy, it's very essentialist writing. not like what's out there. Check it out!
Can anyone help me find a new novel by Buzz Aldrin which was mentioned on Radio 4.? A post apocalyptic story of a world where all the population is old and there are no children..the title had "..grey" in it but i can not find any mention of it anywhere. ?
Unfortunately I only discovered the book recently. Was really a great novel to read, or I seem to think so at least. If it wasn't for online shops i probably would never have found it in the first place!
