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.

Rats and rodents where the rubber hits the road.

If you could sum up Red Sails in the Fallout in three words, what would they be?

Inventive, imaginative,fun.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Red Sails in the Fallout?

When, tongue in cheek, the main character's name the intelligent plant, Russel.


Which scene was your favorite?

When the land shark gets attacked by the razorback pigs. The troupe losses it's water in the attack. Stranded in the desert with water gone the group gets blown off course only to end up in more danger when they crash their land sail into an oasis.


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.

A GIANT story about mutant animals.

I like sci fi, but every book out now is all about big ships battling it out jumping through space wherever. Once in a while something a little different comes out. But this has everything that made sci fi great. The story, the characters, and the world, feel fresh and new. This is the only book have listened to three times, in many, many years.

Also, if Gamma World were a living breathing world instead of game, this would be it. I loved Gamma World, but everyone else was playing D&D. You don't need to know anything about the game to understand this story. In fact the story is kind of how the game should be played if you have a really good GM.

I really, really hope that Paul Kidd gets to pen more of these adventures. It would be great to know what happens with our super mutant team next.

The narrator is great too, she makes it easy to know which person is speaking, the voice is clear and well understood, keeps you engaged, and really tells the story. Wigwig is the best voice.

I can't even remember much about the first book, but this one will stay with me for awhile. I highly recommend this book.
