Publisher's Summary

In the fall of 2012, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, embarked on a series of high-energy experiments. No one knows exactly what went wrong, but in the blink of an eye, thousands of possible universes all condensed into a single reality....
Between a desert and a dried up sea lies the town of Watering Hole, the only oasis for miles and the home of our intrepid heroes Shaani and Xoota. After some rather harrowing adventures in the desert, they are followed home by a swarm of empathic earwigs. As if a psychic bug infestation weren't enough, the town's water supply has suddenly died up. Where there was once fresh water to spare, there is only a trickle of brackish sludge. Theorizing that the water came from a source beyond the desert, Shaani proposes an expedition to re-establish the town's water supply. Xoota, of course, is voted to go with her. Crossing the desert has never been done - and with water in short supply, the task seems impossible. But the ever-helpful Shanni appeals to the town patron Benek, and his love of cryogenically frozen brides, to back the project. What follows is the adventure of a thousand lifetimes.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No I found coming bask to it after a few hours a good stint in the post apocalyptic world.

Any additional comments?

This is a romp with gamma irradiated rodents that have lots of character. It shows just how animalistic humans can be and how human evolved rodents, bugs and plants can be.
Wigwig is a real treat!

Worth the read.

- Kirk MacNeil "I love a good story and excellent plot. Put them in a magical place or far off world; even better. Books are the gateway to another world"

A Perfect Picture of D&D Gamma World

I've followed Gamma World's 7 "mutations" from the 80's to now. This is the first time sitting back and enjoying a perfect depiction of the game without actually Game Mastering. This version of GW, featuring, the Big Mistake, is my favorite. The author did an amazing job conveying aspects of the game and that setting (the monsters, the Alpha Mutations and Omega Tech, etc.). The pacing, the scene descriptions... On Point! The narrator put a cinema in my mind's eye. The perfect mixture of absurd humor, wonderment, and thrilling scenes. My sincere thanks to all involved.
