I read the beginning of this book, and I'd like to finish it.
I think the story centered on a scientist, after a nuclear cataclysm, who had tried to help people but everything went wrong, and people were getting killed. I think a rocket or something took him to an alternate reality version of the USA.

I'm pretty sure it had a green cover.

  • @MrLister a few months ago, but I'm pretty sure it was old.

  • Are you sure it was a rocket and a nuclear cataclysm? Some aspects of your story are reminiscent of The Lathe of Heaven, but it doesn't seem like a great fit.
