Edmund Cooper - ALL FOOL'S DAY


This has to be my most favorite of Edmund Cooper novels and he has written a few good ones. We are once again in a post apocolyptic Britain. This is often Edmund Coopers type of brave new world. Each apocolypse is a different type of thing in most of his stories. Perhaps it was his desire to destroy the real world and invent many types of new one - hence his regular sci/fi formula of after the disaster. In this there are sun spots that cause mass suicide and only the more mentally unstable and unbalanced characters seem to have survived. They struggle to invent some semblance of new order. The stories are simplistic pulp science fiction, and this is one of Edmund Cooper's best in my view. I really enjoyed this story.
