For Kivrin Engle, preparing an on-site study of one of the deadliest eras in humanity's history was as simple as receiving inoculations against the diseases of the fourteenth century and inventing an alibi for a woman traveling alone. For her instructors in the twenty-first century, it meant painstaking calculations and careful monitoring of the rendezvous location where Kivrin would be received. But a crisis strangely linking past and future strands Kivrin in a bygone age as her fellows try desperately to rescue her. In a time of superstition and fear, Kivrin - barely of age herself - finds she has become an unlikely angel of hope during one of history's darkest hours. Winner of the Hugo Award 1993 Winner of the Nebula Award 1993 "A tour de force" - New York Times Book Review "Ambitious, finely detailed and compulsivly readable" - Locus "It is a book that feels fundamentally true; it is a book to live in" - Washington Post

Examining the fate of ancient civilsations and explaining the lessons they can teach us, "The Doomsday Book" explores the likelihood of our survival when disaster hits.

Ben Jakob

We have all heard of people talking about a doomsday, or watched the TV show Doomsday Preppers. We have heard people called "Preppers," or "What Iffers." People have been talking about some sort of "End of the World" scenario, for decades. Even the United States government has many bunkers around the country, some of which have been bought by ordinary citizens and even preppers. Some of us are concerned something may happen sooner than later. I have heard more and more people talking about the possibility of an imminent disaster. Some people worry about different possible scenarios. For example; economic collapse, societal collapse, civil unrest, electromagnetic pulse, weather destruction, war, fire, nuclear attacks, terrorist attacks, fuel shortages, pandemics, geomagnetic reversal, etc. Many people are preparing for these scenarios of which they are concerned. It is estimated in the United States of America, approximately ten percent of the population are Preppers to one degree or another. No one knows if or when, one or more problems will occur. There is no way to predict a specific occurrence or time factor, and my crystal ball broke, so I cannot help with your prognostication. The best we can do is to be prepared for any eventuality. This is why I personally (and many others) believe an underground concrete bunker is the best idea. As I will explain, this Bunker will give you the best protection possible for the most scenarios. One need not be a conspiracy theorist to be concerned. People may think "Doomsday Preppers," or "What Iffers," as we are often called, are "nut jobs." However, when TSHTF, we will be the ones who others will come to, since we will be prepared. Common Design Flaws Some of the problems I have seen with bunker designs are: There is not enough food storage There is not enough water storage The bunker is not deep enough underground to protect from radiation or chemical contamination The bunker is not designed to be able to withstand the amount of pressure from the tonnage of dirt above The air circulation is not adequate The air is not adequately filtered for NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) contamination The water is not sufficiently filtered There are no accommodations for pets. There is no accommodation (or insufficient accommodation) for waste and elimination. Bunkers are too crowded and claustrophobic for long term occupancy. Security is woefully inadequate. There is no adequate plan for replenishing the water There is no adequate plan for replenishing the food Steel shipping containers do not supply the protection needed, nor are they able to be buried deep enough underground for adequate protection. There is no escape plan There is no second exit What about electricity? No plan for backups No bug-out kits prepared No drills planned Occupants are not knowledgeable about nuclear protection. In my design, I have tried to counter these challenges and make a Bunker that is workable, livable for the long term, comfortable and realistic. Jewish People: There are many Jewish people who are also preppers.In the book, I have included much information that is specific for Jews.

Lemuel Gulliver XVI,Jacqueline Slow

Commander Lemuel Gulliver XVI returns from a 25 year odyssey around the solar system searching for places two put the world's excess population. He found none. He has joined others who have recognized this major problem and are attempting to do something about it . Over- population is responsible for many of the world's major problems: global warming, the lack of fresh water, famines, poverty, youth unemployment, reduction in natural resources, and the storing of excess wastes in our air, water and on our land. The commander's 25 years of reading and thinking has made him understand the importance of eu-parenting. Many of the problems of our societies are related to the lack of parental love and the inability of parents to effectively educate their children. Several societies have licensed parents to have children based on a number of criteria-- wooden vary from country to country. Cmdr. Gulliver plans to visit some of these countries and learn what they are doing firsthand. He is aware of the anchors of tradition that hold most of us in the ruts of ignorance and selfishness. religions, businesses, bankrupt governments and many other groups have reasons to keep their populations reproducing. The problem, as all thinking people know, is that Mother Nature in all her bounty has not given us enough arable land and fresh water two adequately nourish all of her children. She has also- not provided enough natural trash cans to harmlessly hide our wastes. In the ensuing books of the series he will look at the ethical and psychological stumbling blocks that bolster tradition-- a tradition which, if not changed, will destroy most of our human brothers. The commander wants humanity to recognize the dangers to its progeny if something is not done yesterday! If we are to reduce our population we must extend our working ages and postpone retirement. But this goes against our selfish natures. We must pay for our own retirements and our medical care and not expect the government to borrow from others to pay for us. But this, too, goes against our selfish natures. Also, in our modern day governments the corruption of power, rather than the good of the governed, is the reality of nearly every democracy and dictatorship of today. His search for utopian principles requires addressing These problems Also. They will be addressed in this series what he plans to write.
