APOCALYPSE. [New York]: Baen Books, . Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Baen Books 69819-2. The forces of good and evil square off in Hoadley, Pennsylvania, an impoverished repressive coal town hit hard by the failure of heavy industry. "APOCALYPSE is Springer's most exciting work to date (as of 1991). It vibrates with powerful imagery, contrasts, and the sophisticated use of cultural idiom. The setting is a grim, economically depressed mining town juxtaposed against pagan natural beauty, seductive magic, and the horrific supernatural ... The reworking of a myth through the lens of popular culture, APOCALYPSE presents the classic struggle between good and evil with much of the focus on the gray areas, not merely the black and white." - Catherine M. Currier, Watson and Schellinger (editors), Twentieth-Century Science-Fiction Writers, third edition, p. 758. A fine copy. (#139741).
