Damnation Alley by Roger Zelazny; 11 editions; First published in ; Subjects: Fiction in English, Science fiction, American Science fiction. One of my favourite books as a kid was Roger Zelazny's Damnation Alley, a kind of post-apocalypse Wages Of Fear or Dirty Dozen, first published in the UK in Some years after World War 4, America is a bombed out shell, the survivors huddled into the remains of California and Boston with miles of radioactive, mutant-infested wasteland between them, dubbed Damnation Alley.

    Damnation Alley () About book: To say that this book--which prefigured both of these comparisons by a goodly distance--is a more Mad Maxy version of "The Road" is no Rolling Stone-esque hogwash, or blind youthful insistence that the contemporary is the all; it is merely and delightfully accurate. Zelazny was a brilliant writer, and the most lyrical of his genre. In , 20th Century Fox had two science fiction films slated for release. One of them, Damnation Alley, which starred George Peppard and Jan-Michael Vincent as ragtag nuclear war survivors who are driven by necessity to leave their military installation and travel across the country in a sturdy all-terrain vehicle, was the expensive big-budget hopeful/5().

      Damnation Alley is a book of epic proportions, set in the future. Travel between settlements have become nearly impossible and that is where the true story lies. You are taken on a trip through a typical voyage accross america in a post World War III land. From strange plants, to odd weather shifts makes for a great adventure.5/5(5).   Damnation Alley by Roger Zelazny, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(K).

Damnation Alley is pure post-apocalyptic cheese, decorated with some ideas of genuine weirdness that uplift an otherwise mediocre by-the-book thriller.

Roughly 25 years after a nuclear war, America is a blasted wasteland, with California and Boston the only two nations of any importance left/5.

"Damnation Alley" does not have the grand scale of the Amber books or the social commentary of "Lord of Light," but it is an enjoyable read that makes effective use of Zelazny's power to evoke intense images without spending an inordinate number of words.

It has aged pretty well for a book written over forty years ago, and all in all a quite /5(67).

Damnation Alley is a post-apocalytic tale of survival by the Hugo and Nebula award winner Roger Zelazny. Set in the decades after a devastating nuclear war, the former USA is a very different place.

With mass destruction, dangerous mutants, large areas of deadly radiation and a worldwide wind preventing anything surviving above feet.5/5. (Jack Gaughan’s cover for the edition) 3/5 (Average) As I read Roger Zelazny’s post-apocalyptical adventure Damnation Alley (), the relentless throbbing of Hawkwind’s song inspired by the novel along with cringeworthy lines of dialogue from the film version kept interjecting themselves into my reading experience.

First, a snippet from the song. Nuclear war survivors travel across the country in an amphibious vehicle called the Landmaster to investigate the source of a signal. One of my favorite road trip movies. With intro commentary by. But there is much to like about Damnation Alley.

Hell Tanner is the best thing about the book. If you’ve ever seen Escape from New York, think Snake Plissken, mix. Get this from a library.

It opens when Hell Tanner (which is a great name) hits a passing gull with a flicked cigar butt. I love that image, because it instantly paints a picture of the kind of guy Hell is.

Hell Tanner, the last of the Hells Angels, gets a pardon from the Nation of California - if he takes plague vaccine from Los Angeles to Boston. To make it, though, he has to go through Damnation Alley -- what's left of America after a nuclear war. It's a land of giant critters, volcanoes, biker gangs, and storms that drop boulders out of the sky.4/5(6).

I remember watching Damnation Alley when I was a kid. The vehicles were cool and it had Hannibal from the A-Team (George Peppard) and the guy who played Stringfellow Hawke from Airwolf (Jan-Michael Vincent).

Damnation Alley by Roger Zelazny My current passion for cool cover art led me to this book while browsing at Book Town Books in Grass Valley.

The pulpy nature of the story is countered by the classy sophistication of the cover art. Based on the book of the same name, Damnation Alley starts off just before a nuclear war at a US Air Force missile silo. Major Denton (George Peppard) and Tanner (Jan-Michael Vincent) are two air force officers working at the missile silo and are the ones who must turn the keys to launch the missiles when the attack that starts the film comes.
