A modern day retelling of Dante's 'Inferno'. Doesn't name names like the original but well worth reading. This is my second time reading the book.

What would happen if a comet was discovered coming close to the Earth? What if close to earth was wrong and chunks of the comet hit the earth? What could we expect in the aftermath? How screwed up can some people be? How would you prepare for the end of the world?

Welcome to the Stronghold. Welcome to the cannibal army. Welcome to the nuclear power plant. Welcome to Hammerlab above the Earth, and everything and everyone in-between.

I read this as a young adult. I reread it in the last month. I am just as impressed with this book now as when I first read it. It made both Nivens and Pournelle my favorite authors… (mais)

I liked the earlier books in the series, but this one felt more like narration of a series of wargaming scenarios.
