Read full description of the books The Fox Run:Don't get me wrong . This will never be considered great literature or for that matter anything other than trashy fun. I discovered this series back in my college days.(Those long ago days when unlike my young nephew who complained that his teacher did not give the class pre-printed notes because his hand would get sore, was just glad that someone had finally invented writing and that I wasn't eaten by a sabre-toothed tiger on the way to my teacher's cave.)
The series basically follows the exploits of a trio of warriors in an end of the world setting. They are the head warriors from a survivalist compound that is starting to re-explore what remains of their world. They do manage to find some good things but mainly find bands of scavengers willing to kill for anything that they can get, mutant creatures, and despotic madmen ruling evil little kingdoms.
The lead warrior is Blade, a mixture of John Wayne, Captain America, Andre the Giant, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. His signature weapon is a matched pair of Bowie knives. The second warrior is the deadly marksman known as Hickock. His signature weapons are a matched pair of pearl-handled colt revolvers .The final leg of this trio of warriors is Geromino. One of the last true native Americans, he has a pair of tomahawks for his signature weapons (but he does lose one later in the series). Notice my use of the word signature. This is important because all three use a myriad of weapons throughout the series., all lovingly described in detail. All three of these mighty warriors excel in their abilities. The giant Blade is strong and tough. Armed with nothing more than his Bowies, he can single-handily defeat a giant mutant wolverine or a band of marauders even after being shot(but only through the arm which he was able to keep from bleeding by squeezing his mighty bicep). Hickock armed with his six-shooters(so 12 bullets)could take on a group of 30 crazed warriors armed with automatic rifles each with hundred round magazines and defeat them all with bullets left to spare. Geromino was their scout and woodsman. He could track the memory of his enemy while blindfolded in a raging thunderstorm.
Was it believable? Not even remotely. Was it fun? Most definitely. Being a men's adventure series( and the illegitimate child of pulp fiction writing), the stories followed a set pattern each time. In fact, in every single book, you can find the same description of their home compound. By the same description, I do mean word for word same.But unlike most series of this nature there is character development. Usually whatever happens in one book can safely be forgotten by the next book. In the Endworld series, events do carryover from one book to another. While this does seem an obvious improvement, it is a fact that the Endworld(and its spinoff Blade series) did end with less than 30 books(50 books if you include the Blade books) in its entire run, some of those other unchanging series have run into the hundreds of books in their runs.
These books came out often with little time in between each. There was even a spin-off series called Blade. Some of the stories were reprinted in double volume issues. You can still find the odd edition in used book stores. So if you enjoy movies starring Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Slyvester Stallone, and you can find a copy or two, give this series a chance. Remember they aren't literature(great or not), but they are great fun.
