Overview

This carefully crafted ebook: "THE NIGHT OF THE LONG KNIVES (A Thrilling Post-Nuclear Dystopia)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. What do you do when in the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust the only way to survive is to kill or be killed? Two strangers, a man and a woman, come across each other in a hostile world where every life hangs by the thread. Instead of killing each other they decide to strike up a purely sexual relationship yet never losing the sight of their weapons. But things can never go as per plan when lust for blood runs higher than carnal lust. Will they survive? Or will they suffer the same gory end as that of the other victim who was murdered by the hero earlier? Interestingly the term "The Night of the Long Knives", was in reality, a military purge known as the Operation Hummingbird that took place in Nazi Germany from June 30 to July 2, 1934, when the Nazi regime carried out a series of political extrajudicial executions intended to consolidate Hitler's absolute hold on power in Germany. Read on! Fritz Leiber (1910–1992) was an American writer of fantasy, horror, and science fiction. He was also a poet, actor in theater and films, playwright and chess expert. With writers such as Robert E. Howard and Michael Moorcock, Leiber can be regarded as one of the fathers of sword and sorcery fantasy, having in fact created the term.
