This is a post-apocalyptic time travel story, written in 1951 at the height of cold war fear of nuclear annihilation. Middletown, in some unspecified part of America, suffers a super-atomic bomb, but instead of being destroyed it is propelled forward in time billions of years to a time when a dead Earth is revolving round a red giant of a sun. They find remnants of a long vanished civilisation. But then the dying Earth is visited by aliens, and the Middletowners are faced with various dilemmas striking to the heart of their existence as the last survivors of the human race. This is a classic novel of ideas and concepts, rather than memorable characters, with interesting reflections on what it means to be human. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. It was a bit boring at first but once you get to the third chapter it gets really interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes post-apocalyptic book. Or to anyone who likes mystery and intrigue. I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book to friends and family.

This story takes palce in the Cold War era. A little town called Middletown gets hit with a super-atomic bomb. This bomb does not do what you would think it does. This super-atomic bomb blast this little town millions of years into the future. Now in the middle of June, the sun is red with a deep freeze in the air. People don’t know what to do. Some town’s folk say it was just a bright like and an earthquake. Others say that the war has finally started. A scientist who works with atomic bombs goes on to find out what exactly has happened. Now with extreme cold, low supply of fuel and food, the mayor now has to tell the town what exactly has happened. “We were shot into the future, to a dying Earth.” The towns people don’t know what to do.

I've read many post-apocalypse novels. This one is a pulp story to its core: old fashioned, even quaint in some ways, and once the personal narrative of the protagonist kicks in, entirely predictable. It's also action-packed, imaginative, and a great deal of fun. I may have over-payed for it ($24 for a print-on-demand hardcover) but I think it's a fine, worthy addition to my collection. It reminded me in some ways of the Mars adventures penned by his wife, Leigh Brackett, and that's fine too. ( )

Science fiction from 1951 that keeps the pages turning on a well told tale. Pulp fiction it might be, but when the writing is as smooth as this and the ideas are good then you could do worse than spend an afternoon with this book. The City at World’s end is Middletown America and a mysterious atomic explosion catapults the city through the time and space continuum far into the future. It is still earth but the sun is coming to the end of it’s life and earth is a cold desolate planet.

Middletown is home to its own secret atomic research station and it is the scientist who are the heroes in this book. They must solve the problems of survival for a town of fifty thousand people on a dead planet. When the chance comes to leave their town the people do not want to go, they are ferociously proud of their patrimony and led by a short sighted but passionate mayor they dig in their heels.

Largely free of the worst sexism that can make some of the science fiction from this period a struggle to read Hamilton keeps things fairly simple, but not too simple, problems are not solved by American muscle and the characters have some depth. A pretty good story with a theme running through it that might reflect small town American views at the start of the cold war. Imaginative and with it’s own logic it will please readers who like these stories. I do and will be on the lookout for more reads by Edmond Hamilton (who was married to Leigh Brackett one of the few female popular science fiction authors). 3.5 stars. ( )
