In my opinion the Phoenix series is a modern thriller epic that has an especially chilling quality in light of the maniacal doomsday schemes of survivalists around the world. While set in the US following a kind of "super-911" apocalypse engineered by a major-league conspiracy (beginning on the West Coast from which Magnus Trench, a.k.a., Phoenix, makes his way eastward) this story could take place in many another global locale. The way the story is told is highly imaginative, making it considerably different and in some ways considerably better than many another action-adventure series tale. Gets my recommendation.

This complete edition of the Phoenix saga was a good deal. It was apparently rewritten by the author but not re-purposed. The original manic style is still there, as are the savage twists of the story and the driven characters. Such a character is Phoenix himself, who, starting his day as Magnus Trench began the next as the scourge of the baddies, crazies and thugs who have descended on the still-warm ashes of post-apocalyptic America. I wasn't acquainted with all the titles in the Phoenix series before reading this edition, but I can now understand why Phoenix has become a cult classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phoenix Is The Classic Action Series 24 Aug. 2016
By Wes C. Spellman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The Phoenix action series is unique. It created something brand new in the world of series fiction, a brash, clever, tongue-in-cheek adventure tale set in an America devastated by nuclear attacks, yet at the same time it was always totally on message as a serial actioner.

Even today, decades after Alexander penned it, Phoenix is still unique and still as powerful and as full of surprises as ever. Possibly this is why I frequently come across some new discussion concerning it. The subject of weapons featured in the story often comes up in these, but having read the series I think these were purely window dressing for the story from the beginning.

I'd also point out that the e-book edition, titled Phoenix: The Complete Action series, which contains all five Phoenix series installments, looks like the definitive version. If you have any of the original paperbacks, you can compare them to the e-book and see that everything has been carefully updated and edited. I also think the e-book is the only version to read because of this fact. The paperbacks should be considered collectibles only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 19 July 2013
By Larry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was a fan of this genre back in the 90's. I missed this series so I was excited to find this available for the Kindle.
Did not disappoint. These books are packed with action and interesting stories.
Nice to buy all five books at once

5.0 out of 5 stars Unabashed Phoenix rave 28 Aug. 2013
By Grant Vanderlewe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an unabashed rave about the complete Phoenix action series. This keystone adventure series is a saga that, like the Phoenix itself, is a timeless tale.

One thing I'd like to make clear to those who may be interested is that this is in no way, shape or form some kind of science fiction thing but actually a boundary-breaking epic action-adventure saga.The series was obviously far ahead of its time in throwing out old conventions which dictated that anything written about or set in a future world system was simply by this yardstick of measurement alone "sci-fi." Today, future or alternate future stories have become part of the mainstream entertainment and literature. The old categories are no longer valid (actually, they never were). Therefore, to anybody who thinks this is even remotely sci-fi I say take a reality check. Just some thoughts about this fantastic book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been amazing... 8 Jun. 2016
By Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Decent '80s post apocalyptic pulp, with over-the-top violence, bodacious beauties, weird mutant sex (consensual and otherwise), and a standard cast of characters: the brooding protagonist on a single-minded quest to find his family, the megalomaniacal super villain trying to rule the world, the guy who takes over Vegas and runs it like a king, the wanton women along the way who throw themselves at the hero, etc. Not a bad story, if you're into this sort of thing (though the series was sadly cancelled without any actual resolution). I'd have given this an easy four stars, were it not for the laughably inaccurate descriptions of guns that permeate the series. If you don't know which end of a gun is which, then you can ignore this and enjoy the series for the dark, balls-to-the-wall crazy (though fairly predictable) journey that it is, but if you are at least moderately familiar with guns, or if you grew up also reading stuff like Jerry Ahern's The Survivalist series, which included absolutely detailed and accurate descriptions of each and every weapon used, this series will drive you as nuts as it drove me. FN M249s shooting steel jacketed wadcutters at 70 rounds per second? MAC-11 .380s shooting .45 ACP ammo? Micro Uzis in .45 ACP with 40 round magazines? A certain gun (don't recall which) shooting 7.62x5.56mm ammo? It's all in here! These glaring inaccuracies jumped out at me and pulled me out of the story constantly. It's sort of like watching a movie set 500 years in the past and seeing a jet flying by in the background across the top of the screen every 10 minutes. As Dean Koontz once pointed out in an interview, if you're going to discuss a subject that certain people are very passionate about, you'd better get it right, or those of your readers who share this passion will call you on it. He felt this was especially true when discussing guns, and I agree with him completely. It would have been better had the author kept things generic, like simply saying the character pulled out a revolver or an assault rifle, without any further description, allowing the reader to fill in the blanks with their imagination. Oh, well. What are you going to do? The story IS wonderfully pulpy, gross, and bizarre, enough so that I think three stars are warranted, despite this major shortcoming.
