Read full description of the books:
Novelization of the '64 film directed by Stanley Kubrick, starring Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, Slim Pickens. As with many of Southern's film screenplay projects there is a dispute about the level of his participation but without a doubt his caustic black humor pervades this classic film. Peter George's novelization closely follows the script of the finished film. "Kubrick’s cool cynicism & Terry Southern’s caustic black humor are perfectly wedded in this vision of nuclear apocalypse brought about by a mad U.S. general’s paranoia about women & Commies. Nothing is sacred as Peter Sellers (in three roles), George C. Scott & Slim Pickens set out to stop the 'Russkies' from polluting America’s drinking water while trying to stave off Doomsday. Forty years since its initial release, Strangelove remains a perfect and timeless spoof of political & military insanity."--International House, Philadelphia.

Read information about the authorPeter Bryan George was a British author, most famous for the 1958 Cold War thriller novel Red Alert, first published under the title Two Hours to Doom and written under the pen name Peter Bryant. The book was the inspiration for Stanley Kubrick's classic film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
His best-known novel, Red Alert was written while serving as a RAF officer and published with the pseudonym Peter Bryant.
Due to interest in nuclear themes sparked by Stanley Kramer's film version of On the Beach in 1959, the film rights to Red Alert were sold that year, only to be handed around until Stanley Kubrick bought them in 1962, reportedly for as little as $3,500.
Peter George co-wrote the screenplay for the film with Kubrick and Terry Southern. After the film was released, he wrote a novelisation of Dr. Strangelove and dedicated it to Kubrick.
George later wrote another novel to denounce the use of nuclear weapons, entitled Commander-1.
George committed suicide in 1966.
