Wiki

Nine years after Mortimer Tate retreated from the end of the world (he thought) to the Tennessee mountains, three men appear before his cabin. He emerges, desperate for conversation. Unfortunately, they mistake his intentions, and he is forced to shoot them. Despite this inauspicious incident, Mortimer is optimistic enough to venture down the mountain. What passes for civilization surprises him: a chain of strip joints called Joey Armageddon’s Sassy-A-Go-Go has set itself as mankind’s savior. But as with any fledgling world-saving operation, there is opposition—to wit, the terrorist-like Red Stripes, whom Mortimer is sent to defeat. His subsequent breakneck journey is full of cannibals, slave runners, bad booze, and other dangers, none more perilous than hope. Although this dark comedy makes one laugh, it isn’t a romp in a postapocalyptic playground. It’s violent and sleazy, laced with moments of quiet gravity, an intelligent satire of how American society works even after it has broken down (the label for postapocalypse Jack Daniel’s in chapter 23 is pure comic gold). Compulsively readable. --Krista Hutley

Here is another classic after civilization falls novel as good as Alas Babylon, Lucifer's Hammer or The Stand. Don't be fooled by the cover or the references to Quentin Tarrentino. It is actually a very entertaining and exciting read. Mortimer Tate went into hiding on a mountain as civilization was falling apart. When invaders come near his hiding place, he is curious to see what has happened to civilization and leaves to explore. He finds a new form of order where armed men with red stripe bands …

One of the best reasons for visiting your local library is that they have all of their new books in one area (at least in my library). It makes it extremely easy to peruse all of the recent additions to their collection without having to walk all around looking at individual sections. Because of this, you can find books in genres that you may not normally read; in this case, the book was labeled "science fiction." Also, having a title like "Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse" and including a picture …

Go-Go Girls Of The Apocalypse
Mortimer Tate knew both his marriage and the world was coming to an end, so he found a cave, stocked it, and holed up in it for nine years. Now he's ready to hit the town, and has decided he wants to find his wife. He's first accosted and robbed by a bear-man, then saved by a cowboy named Buffalo Bill. Wandering into Spring City, Bill takes Mortimer to Joey Armageddon's Sassy A-Go-Go. Apparently, Joey Armageddon's is the only chain left in the bombed out, busted up new world. The only place where …
