by Christopher Anvil (Author). I first read this book shortly after it came out, and I liked it so much I've hung on to it ever since.

by Christopher Anvil (Author). It is pitched at a high-school comprehension level, but the ending is both philosophically and practically tidy - a way forward even for we who never suffered through the horrors of a nuclear war. But maybe we will have to rediscover an Edwardian political simplicity to find that path, as Arakal and his cabinet do in this book. Certainly the justification for the enforced stasis of the Soviets in this book is sound if only on an Earthly level.

Read by Christopher Anvil. Anvil's repeated appearances in Astounding/Analog were due in part to his ability to write to one of Campbell's preferred plots: alien opponents with superior firepower losing out to the superior intelligence or indomitable will of humans. A second factor is his stories are nearly always humorous throughout. Another was his characterization and manner of story crafting, where his protagonists slid from disaster to disaster with the best of intentions, and through exercise of fast thinking, managed to snatch victory somehow from the jaws of defeat.

Who could resist a book with this cover? I suppose there are strong-willed people out there with determination and grit who could, but at 12 years old I wasn't one of them. I was baffled by how hard it was to read The Steel, the Mist, and the Blazing Sun: awesome dude in a poncho with a machine gun on the cover and totally impenetrable text.

By the way, I never buy into those books that project so complete a breakdown after a nuclear war that books and libraries don't survive. I read the studies - while a complete war would kill billions, most of the deaths would be due to systems breakdowns and not fallout or nuclear winter. People might fall ill and starve, but things would survive better.

I find it inexplicable that this edition omits the first part of the story, which was published in Analog as "Ideology Counts" and introduced Arakal, General Brusilov and the rest. Taking them up in media res could easily confuse readers who did not have the background laid out gradually.
