    A young family wakes to a ruined world - their city has been devastated by meteors, and Heather, Brendan, and their newborn twins are among the few survivors. A nearby mountain - the site of a tragedy that underlies Heather’s life - looms over the city, unharmed by the meteors. While other survivors struggle to stay alive, Heather is drawn to the mountain.

    Sommaire:

    In the summer of 1921, a disenchanted journalist escapes the rat race for a drive in the country. But Mr. Barnstaple's trip exceeds his expectations when he and other motorists are swept 3,000 years into the future. The inadvertent time travelers arrive in a world that corresponds exactly to Barnstaple's ideals: a utopian state, free of crime, poverty, war, disease, and bigotry. Unfettered by the constraints of government and organized religion, the citizens lead rich, meaningful lives, passed in pursuit of their creative fancies. Barnstaple's traveling companions, however, quickly contrive a scheme to remake the utopia in the image of their twentieth-century world.

    Sommaire:

    A powerful solar flare will strike the earth in less than 48 hours. To preserve the infrastructure our lives depend on, everything must go dark. Hospital emergency generators will be disconnected, the entire internet will be turned off, media broadcasts will go dark, and all nuclear reactors will be shut down to standby. The potential for panic and societal breakdown is clear. This story follows how several men and women respond to crisis as society descends into violence and chaos.
