The Last Centurion Anybody else read this? I really like Science fiction and have been reading it since I discovered my first Robert Heinlein novel some 50 years ago or so. One of my favorite author is John Ringo who writes a lot of stuff, mostly military fiction oriented. He writes real well and obviously does his research. I came across The Last Centurion at the local Barnes and Noble yesterday. Ringo has out done himself. The first half of the book describes how a future (2019) influenza plague coupled with a really cold winter topples the world. He spends the first half of the book going into great detail about how and why a major cathestrophe can happen and it is really, really informative as well as entertaining. Just started into the second half which shows the subject hero's participation but I cannot put this thing down.
