Annotation

The first half of the story is about the creation of what appears a eutopia, albeit a fragile one, after a war that killed 98% of the world’s population, with the survivors, many of whom died, underground. The eutopia is a domed city built for the survivors, although some live a more restricted life outside the dome. The rest of the story is a ghost or zombie story.
