CELL

by Stephen King

Civilization slipped into its second dark age with a speed that could not have been foreseen by even the most pessimistic futurist. It was as if it had been waiting to go. On October 1, the stock market looked good, and most of the planes were on time. Two weeks later the skies belonged to the birds again and the stock market was a memory. By Halloween, every major city from New York to Moscow stank and the world as it had been was only a memory.

PRESS ENTER

by John Varley

IF YOU WISH TO KNOW MORE PRESS 'ENTER'
"Press Enter won the Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novella in 1985. It works on many levels -- it's a romance, murder mystery, psychological drama, and horror story. It's exciting, moving, and scary. Though Press Enter is set in the early 1980s, it feels nostalgic rather than dated."
