The Dream Vessel is the second book in the series of two by Jeff Bredenberg (1953-2010). It's different from most post-apocalyptic stories I've read -sailing ships? pirates?- and that alone makes it worth reading.
from the back of the book:
ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A REVOLUTION
A glorious uprisingsmashed the power of the Monitor -the bloodthirsty dictator who enslaved the inhabitants of a continent already ravaged by nuclear devastation. Now rebel leader Rosenthal Webb must spread the message of freedom to what remains of the world. To do so, he needs a great sailing ship. And that means consorting with slavers, pirates and cutthroats -trusting them to serve his cause and transport his emissaries safely across a vast ocean of breathtaking possibility and horrific peril.
And somewhere beyond the horizon, Pec-Pec is waiting -Rasta God, thief and mystical trickster- to bend the noble mission to his incomprehensible will... and move the world into his own vision of an impossible future.
OOh, this sounds interesting!Love post-apocalyptic books!ReplyDelete
I do, too! :) It is fun. This is a type I'd never seen.Delete
Sounds very interesting !ReplyDelete
Happy weekend ahead!
Yes, I bought it because it was a sf book with that cover and didn't expect much. I was pleasantly surprised.Delete
I would have been by sooner, but the ice storm we had last night took out my phone and internet. It just came back on a few minutes ago. It sounds like an interesting read. Thanks for the review.ReplyDelete
Ice storm! Wow! We're having the eternal dreary rain, but no ice or snow.Delete
OMG! Pirate apocalypse! That has to be an original concept. Love it. :)ReplyDelete
I had certainly not seen anything like it. He had an original mind but didn't publish much sf and then died fairly young (well 56 or so, which sounds young to me). A shame :(Delete
Sounds like a great book with sailing ships and pirates A-R-R-R! Love it 😁. Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊ReplyDelete
Yes! Tall ships and the men who build them. Sounds like historical fiction instead of science fiction lolDelete
Interesting approach for a post-apocalyptic story. That is really clever. Hugs-ErikaReplyDelete
Maybe you can't tell a book by the cover, but I bought this one because of the cover lol I wasn't disappointed.Delete
