DC Rider

Richard C. Harrison. Pentland Press (NC), $21.95 (208pp) ISBN 978-1-57197-294-1

With a drive-by shooting on the first page and a national electricity crisis on the seventh, Richard Harrison's apocalyptic DC Rider is a fast-paced tale of life in a radically different near future, in which familiar landscapes Amish farm country, the nation's capital take on new and frightening outlines. Hero Buck Buckley, who left D.C. just before the lights in the whole country went out, rides back into town on a horse, and like a western movie hero fights bad guys, fires pistols and rescues a lovely lady.
