The meltdown at Three Mile Island created the death zone known as the Drift, where the sky burned dark blue and pink, and where boneseekers destroyed bodies within. Two-headed monsters, dog-faced boys, mutated vampires and other undesirables were thrown into the Drift. Now, they're coming out.

Review: In the Drift

User Review  - Kevin Brown - Goodreads

I agree with the critique that Swanwick doesn't tell very coherent stories - his works end up being much more episodic than one expects from a novel. However, I still rate this book highly because it, like his other works, is so literary. His writing is simply far better than most SF writers. Read full review
