Damnation Alley Roger Zelazny 1976
Damnation Alley: three thousand miles of radio-active wasteland, torn by hurricane winds and giant fire storms, the domain of mutants and monsters, a wasteland few men dared to cross.
Hell Tanner: the last Angel left alive, his gang wiped out in the Big Raid that destroyed most of America. Hell Tanner, the only man in California with a chance of getting through Damnation Alley to Boston with the plague serum the ravaged city needed to survive.
Roger Zelazny, winner of both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, has created a terrifying story of an odyssey through man-made hell.
