the postman by david brin was a book that i picked up on the recommendation of david harper in a comment to one of my earlier reviews. it’s a great book, a post-apocalyptic tale that shows definite echoes of its vintage (early 80s) but without feeling dated. although it sounds fairly cheesy on the surface, the idea that mail service could bring a bit of hope to a destabilized world works really well, and is nicely tied into the anti-ben-franklin writings of the inspiration for the bad guys.
