It is hard to blurb this book. On the one hand it is about Vesuvius and volcanic explosions and disasters both natural and man-made. But it is also a book about the origins of the earth, of the universe, and about how precarious our existence is. How so much of what we are today is dependent on natural events a thousand years ago, or a millennia ago, or so long ago that it is almost pointless to count the time because it is so difficult to grasp those sort of numbers.
Here’s the project I’ve been working on: a searchable index of diverse SF/F.
521 books so far, and I’m still adding more! There’s a page to suggest something if I don’t have it. (hint- I’m very short on comics at the moment!)
