“Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!”


…Which of course is a line from the poem by Shelley, “Ozymandias.”

The lines that follow are haunting.

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.
This poem is a dirge for civilizations past, and it leads into today’s subject, the worldwide launch of John Birmingham’s Zero Day Code. You should buy this immediately if you’re a post-apocalyptic junkie. His novel (can you call an audio book a novel? Probably.) checks all the blocks.
Violence. Check.
Action. Check.
Chilling realism. Check.
Plausibility. Check.
Strong characters. Check.
I’m not going to bust out a full scale review, I’ll just give this book a strong “recommend.” This novel and the creative process that surrounded it has been talked about in these pages enough. Click on the link above and check it out for yourself.
It’s totally worth it.
