THE QUIET EARTH BOOK by Craig Harrison

This is a great book, somewhat in the spirit of Survivors, but set in New Zealand. Copies are almost impossible or expensive to come by, £200 is a typical price, but as a small gift to ALL my friends who read this, I have made the text available on my website, simply follow this link, & scroll down towards the bottom of the page & look for the title:

Enjoy & a great Xmas & happy 2013 to everyone I know.
This is assuming we all "SURVIVE" the 21st Dec, when the world ends! I will then be in Survivorland then for xmas.

I will also be adding some more text in the next few days to my own Survivors follow on book: "AFTER POWER" the link is on the same page as the link above, the book is not finished yet! but I am trying.

Thanks Richard Clark for the picture of Dennis, now added to my site too.
I hope to meet some of you next year, on one of my visits to "White cross" (or Callow hill farm) - lots more Survivors treasures to be found there, I'm sure.

£200?

Looks like I'm going to have to sell my copy then - and buy a Kindle Fire. Woo Hoo!

If I can find it ...

Seriously, £200 is way too much for a knackered old paperback. £199.99 seems fair though.

There's a film of this too which is pretty good IIRC.

NB: www.quietearth.us is an interesting site. Looks like there may be a couple of good apres apocalypse style films on the way (Oblivion and After Earth)

Re: £200?

That is just mental.

Re: THE QUIET EARTH BOOK by Craig Harrison

Thanks Bob for the link to the website page and that over expensive book.
I still appreciate the help given to me from this forum and in particular yourself, years ago when I wanted to watch Ian McCullogh on youtube in an early performance of his "Flight of the Heron".

Have a Happy Christmas.

I've got a bit of reading to look forward to.

Re: THE QUIET EARTH BOOK by Craig Harrison

There is also a movie of the book which is worth watching it is also set in New Zealand.
This movie also proves we do not have sheep wandering the streets!

I'm sure you do not have have sheep in new zealand streets!

A happy new 2013 to all Survivors fans & users of this board.

I have just returned from Survivorland in the west country, with many places flooded - it has a feeling of the latter part of Terry Nation's "Book": Survivors, I took quite a few pics of the flooded roads, which I will put on my website in a few days.

The Quiet Earth Book is being republished in August this year, so as not to infringe the renewed copyright, I have been asked by the new publisher to take down the PDF file of it I have, linked futher up this thread, at the weekend - you have been warned But it will be great to have the book in a better form. This is the link to the new edition, scroll down to august:
