I just checked this book out... not sure yet if it belongs on Awful Library Books or not...:




 

Yeah, there's some wild stuff on that site.  Speaking of predictions, this one Apocalypse 2012: A Scientific Investigation Into Civilization’s End  -  from 2007 - turned out to be a little off.

Loved this line, injecting a bit of humor into the middle of really suspenseful scene from "Gates of Evangeline"

There's a story about the start of the Manhattan project where one of the physicists at the University of Chicago came home and told his wife a vague story about them having to move to Tennessee for a while. She went to the library and checked out a book on the State and saw that the last few people to check it out were wives of physicists. Good thing the Japanese weren't watching.

 
That's pretty funny. I do remember just opening books at random and seeing who had checked them out.

For your information it wasn't Little Billy the Quadriplegic Orphan at all! I was over at a friend's house and there it was by the front door so he'd remember to take it back to the library. Small towns. Remember when you could look at the little card and find out who else had checked out a book? Now you have to go door to door and just ask them.

If you want to read a modern book with a similar but much longer time span, the new Neal Stephenson book Seveneves is totally science-geeky but looks like it deals with some similar concepts. And a lot more. I checked it out from the library and only had to renew it once. Okay I didn't renew it since someone else had put a hold on it; I just kept it an extra week and will have to pay some ungodly fine. 85¢ maybe.

When I was a lad of about ten, I read a science-fiction book. The story was about a future earth in the throes of an ice-age. The surviving humans had built cities below the ice and isolated themselves from one another. A group of dissidents in one of the cities, operating illegal communication equipment made contact with another city. When they were discovered, the city's leaders banished them to the surface. They were given vehicles designed for traversing the ice, and a limited quantity of supplies. Don't recall how things turned out for them.

For the life of me, I cannot recall the author or title of this book. Does it sound familiar to anyone?
