About this ebook

Two classic science fiction stories about a California family fleeing a nuclear holocaust, written in an era when a dystopian future seemed inevitable.

An atomic bomb has struck Los Angeles, and the streets are filled with cars fleeing the city. But Mr. Jimmon knows that things will be different for his family. He has meticulously prepared for such an event, and now that it has arrived, he carries out his plan almost gleefully. The Jimmons get in their station wagon, filled with supplies, and head for the predetermined base. From the backseat, his children are complaining. In denial about the world’s precarious future, they would prefer to find their friends and wait out the crisis in the comfort of their home. But in reality, there is no guarantee of escape—or survival.
Savage, unromantic, and unflinchingly honest, these two dark tales by “one of the best American writers,” describe what could really happen at the end of the world, and what it takes to get there (Ray Bradbury).
This ebook features an introduction by Michael Swanwick and an illustrated biography of Ward Moore including rare images from the author’s estate.
