Logan's Books

I first read Logan's Run in Leaf Rapids, perhaps the very movie tie-in edition pictured above. It would have been a loan from the public library, and though I haven't read the novel since, its chilling dystopian imagery of a murderous youth-centric computer-controlled world stuck with me. I didn't know William F. Nolan had written sequels until decades after reading the first book, and by that time all three novels were long out of print.

But thanks to the miracle of the Internet and abebooks.com, now all three are in my hands. Good thing, too - the crystal in my palm hasn't started blinking red yet, but no one lives forever...
