It should have surprised no one that paralysis of the body politic might leave one limb functioning if it were insulated against systemic shock.

Scanned by Highroller and proofed more or less by Highroller. It should have surprised no one that paralysis of the body politic might leave one limb functioning if it were insulated against systemic shock. If you put aside the arguable features of Mormon theocracy-the fact of theocracy, women's rights, resurgent polygamy, the identification of Amerinds as lost tribes of Israel,-you could focus on the more secular facts of Mormonism.

Dean Ing. Publisher: Tor Books, 1992. The acclaimed author of The Ransom of Black Stealth One offers the first book in the Quantrill trilogy - a thriller set in the near future.

Ing and his wife reside in Oregon. Mills and others recovered in a spacious modern hospital in Thunder Bay, just across Lake Superior from the US, and Mills was secretly amused to learn that he now qualified for a foreign service meda. He complained of blurred vision for a week after his eyesight returned to normal, certain that the longer his recuperation, the more likely he would be posted. To a reasonable duty station. In his own mind Mills was not malingering. He was studying the war's progress, the better to discover how he might get himself posted to some spot where he would be most effective.

System Shock was the first System Shock game. It was followed up in 1999 by System Shock 2. System Shock was a critical success and considered far ahead of its time. It was revolutionary, being one of the first first-person experiences ever to allow players to look up and down, jump, lean, crouch, etc. It was also praised for its incredible storytelling and atmosphere, both of which would be copied by many games later on, such as Dead Space, Bioshock, and Singularity.

  • The perfect simple read

  • Meet Ted Quantrill, who as a thirteen-year-old is thrust into the world on his own after America comes under nuclear and biological attack. Dean Ing is a good writer who delivers believable dialogue, excellent action sequences and a terrific plot. I can't wait to read his other books.

  • Excellent
    This review requires that I write ten more words. Word, word, word, word, word, word, word, word, word, word.

  • Most of the people I've known have thought about, at one time or another, how they would fare in a world gone wild (possibly the next FOX super-stupidity series). Systemic Shock takes a detailed, and disturbing, look at the possibilities and choices of both individuals and nations.
    Ted Quantrell is our link to this world. Young in body, old in spirit, unmatched in physical and mental speed, the character goes from young boy to lethal gentleman in the span of a couple hundred pages.
    Ing has the ability to write not only involving action scenes, but clear ones as well. Without burning the reader out on detailed moments, he still manages to craft a memorable scene. I could draw diagrams from memory of most of the gunfights, and yes, I did read the books dozens of times so that may not be so surprising.
    This is not a book for young readers, but young adults may well enjoy the series (Single Combat, Wild Country as sequels). There is a lot to learn from reading these books, and they're utterly enjoyable along the way.
    If you like Roger Zelazny or Louis L'Amour, you'll like Systemic Shock.

  • This book came out in 1981. I was thirteen then and I read the whole thing staight through. Over the past nineteen years I've re-read it more than once and every time I've enjoyed it along with the two sequels: Single Combat and Wild Country. Yes there are elements in the series wich are now obsolete,but that is beside the point. These books are beautifully detailed, intelligent, suspenseful, and have some very well done action sequences. They accomplish what good science fiction should do, they take the reader to another reality and make it believable. My only complaint is that there has never been a fourth installment in the series. At the end of Wild Country ( released 1985) there are hints of what is coming in the next instalment, but fifteen years later there is still no 4th part. Why? Yes it is no longer applicable to the world of today but so what? Let's just say it takes place in an alternate reality and get on with it. Please. Otherwise pick up these book if you get the chance. In my opinion they are three of Mr. Ing's best works.

  • I've alway love "post Apocalypse SF". While I still list "Lucifer's Hammer" as #1, Ing's "Systemic Shock" is a very good read. If I consider this trilogy [including "Single Combat" & "Wild Country"] as one yarn, it rivals King's "the Stand" for second on my list.The whole set isn't much longer than either "The Stand" or "Lucifer's Hammer" .
    Mr. Ing creates a plausible and exciting global disaster, and a great set of characters and sub-plots, including "the starlet and the improved Ural Boar".
    His respect for the LDS Faith vs his recognition of the human failings of some of it's members was was magnificient. The LDS Church gained even more respect from this outsider [a life long Unitarian], yet several of the lessor villians and one of the major villians think of themselves as Mormon.
    A Great Read, well worth the time and trouble to track down!
