What kind of story do you want? I mean, I love me a Mad Max (or Damnation Alley) full burn action quest... but I also like stories that have ideas about the slow regression of civilization to hunter/gatherer nomads (Earth Abides is probably my favorite) or the total despair of waiting for the end to catch up in stories like On The Beach.

And of course there is one of my favorites, 'Emergence' by David R. Palmer. He has a sequel as well, but I haven't read much of that one yet.

Threshold wasn't a sequel to Emergence. If you're talking about Tracking, that was in three issues of Analog and not an actual, stand alone novel. Dammit. (I did, however, find a pdf of it, which I will see if it's readable. I thoroughly enjoyed both Threshold and Emergence back in the day, and then he didn't have anything else ...

Absolutely. Truly a one-of-a-kind story. I've read it three times over the decades.

What is amazing to me is that it is just as relevant and just as powerful as it wsa when it was first published 60 years ago.
