I enjoy any story in which the entire world is destroyed. So I'm enjoying "Alas Babylon" (1959).

I do wonder though, if at some point in the story, one of the many female characters will do something useful or intelligent.

Maybe that'll be the twist ending.


This is a rather amazing cover art, though.

I imagine this one guy is going to save everybody ... who is apparently just standing around.
