Synopsis

Ace - October 1978

The World had become a Slaughterhouse...

His name was Anthony Rogers. And he made the breath-taking trip from his own Twentieth Century into the Twenty-fifth.

The reason? A new leader was needed: someone strong and resourceful enough to combat the most vicious, most devastating horde of plunderers that ever swept over the earth.

Anthony Rogers, later to be known as "Buck," and Wilma Deering, warrior girl of the Twenty-fifth Century, were to launch themselves in this fast-moving novel as two of the most celebrated characters in science fiction.

AMERICA OUT OF THE RUINS...

A strange occurence of events brought Anthony Rogers of the Twentieth Century smack into the middle of a desperate Twenty-fifth Century battle. The Hans of Mongolia had overrun the world, destroying everything in their path. They devastated the United States, annihilating all except a few thousand beings who were forced to seek shelter in dense forests and underground retreats.

But over the centuries, the savagery that had once been America began to band together in a effort to throw off the Han domination. The odds were great, for the Hans were clever and possessed alarming weapons.

A leader was needed—a great leader. Was the man from the Twentieth Century the one for the job?

Ace - 1962

"One of those rare stories that will bear reading and rereading many times." —Hugo Gernsback

A most important influence on modern science-fiction — the inspiration of such inventions as the walkie-talkie, television, and rocket artillery — is the famous newspaper character "Buck Rogers."

The story of Rogers, the American who went forward five hundred years to participate in the rise of a new America from the ruins of the old, was first told in the unforgettable novel, ARMAGEDDON 2419 A.D., which has never before been available on the newsstands.

Rogers' adventures, and those of Wilma Deering warrior girl of the 25th Century, are by-words for imagination-stirring science-adventure. ARMAGEDDON 2419 A.D. by Phil Nowlan in no comic-strip picture-book — it is a science-fiction novel of classic importance.
