Lurid depictions of sex and impotence, themes of emperor worship and violence, the use of realism and myth - these characterize the fiction of Mishima Yukio and Oe Kenzaburo. Napier discovers similarities as well as dissimilarities in the work of two writers of radically different political orientations. Napier places Yukio's and Kenzaburo's fiction in the context of postwar Japanese political and social realities and, in a new preface for the paperback edition, reflects on each writer's position in the tradition of Japanese literature.

As the Bloodworks crumbled into oblivion, the Coyote treaded into Vault X and its unknown darkness. Unfortunately, the realm of Vault X is treacherous. Domain to the mysterious Professor Marlow and his cult benefactors, the Nihilist Occult, the subterranean labyrinth devours any who dare enter it unbidden.

Nathan and his new companions must fight through a gauntlet of Old World Nightmares, creatures so horrific that they helped bring about End-day. Escape is uncertain. One thing is known - Vault X holds the answer to the Wastelands' survival. Can the Coyote stay alive to tell the tale?
