After the World Ends
Fifty years before, the "Peace Authority" took control of governments worldwide with a radically different weapon, the "bobbler," which encased its targets within an impenetrable force field, rendering resistance impotent.

The odds against them seem impossibly long. Nothing has been able to defeat the Peace Authority's bobbler.

It's a pretty decent adventure story. As a sci fi story, however, it is pretty ordinary - the world in the aftermath of a nuclear war. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Barry Blyveis
