Ice and Fire

Written By:James Axler - 1989

  • Ice and Fire - James Axler cover

Synopsis

Adventure and suspense in the midst of the new reality

OUT OF THE ASHES AND INTO THE FUTURE...

Snakefish, California, is rich in the currency of post-holocaust America—gasoline.

Almost leveled by the Soviet missiles that annihilated most of the West Coast, Snakefish is in the midst of a reconstruction, financed by a commodity far more valuable than the usual Deathlands jack.

But greed and man's lust for power threaten to shatter the hard-won peace and tranquility of this fledgling community as disparate factions fight for control of the substance that will give them wealth beyond their wildest dreams.

Ryan Cawdor and his companions emerge from a gateway and step into the path of a smoldering war for power.

Excerpt

Ryan's eye took in a scene from a heart-stopping nightmare

The huge mutie rattlesnake was well over twenty feet long, its body as thick as the thigh of a grown man. The setting sun glinted off a metal strip that circled the reptile's throat like a silvery collar. The band caught Ryan's attention, but his instant preoccupation was with Lori, sprawled helplessly in the dirt in front of the rearing hissing creature.

Ryan braced his G-12 against his hip and aimed at the spade-shaped head of the snake. But his finger held still on the trigger of the powerful blaster.

The giant rattler's stunning speed took them all by surprise. Before anyone could tighten a finger on a trigger, it had weaved its head back and forth and struck.
