Description

This is the way the world ends with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death And here is the bleak new world of the day after a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides or are chosen.
