Back Cover:

Hard Core

A legendary warrior of nuke-spawned America, Ryan Cawdor understands the hard and fast rule of Deathlands. Where there is life, death is only a matter of time. Still, staying alive is the dubious luxury of being quick, hard and willing to abide by a code of honor long abandoned to the wreckage of this post apocalyptic hellzone: truth and fair play.

Blood Price

St. Louis is a concrete jungle of fetid heat, acid rains and cutthroats. With JB Dix gravely wounded, Ryan and his group become captive guests of a local barony. Freedom lies in the success of a deal: recapture a runaway teen, daughter of the ailing baron. But the dangerous power behind the throne rests with a self-proclaimed holy man. His gruesome manipulation of life and death are about to put the group in a race for their own salvation.

Every day is a devil's bargain in Deathlands.

Play Fair
by Timbermountain
I really enjoyed this one because it got me a couple of times in terms of suspense and the action as plausible and Deathlands worthy. I like it when the heroes get to be heroes and this episode does not disappoint.

The one puzzlement I'm left with is the name of the book. I thought perhaps "playfair's axiom" may have something to do with Ryan's code of honor and keeping his word (playing fair). Then I went to Wikipedia and learned that Playfair's Axiom is about geometry and parallel lines. Still trying to figure out the connection, maybe I'm just dense.

I recommend this book.

Ok..
by ShadowTek
Well, maybe its because its the first book after the first 33 I got but many of the characters seemed out of well.. character. Ryan seemed really hard.. which is good in a way.. but seemed too hard to his long time friends.. Jak and Mildred seemed out of character as well...

The whole screamwing part was cool though, I rate this book as average.. Not much more to say I guess.
