Superior post-apocalyptic story by Harlan Ellison that got made into an ok movie. Boy and his mutant, telepathic, dog strive to survive in post-nuclear America. Boy meets girl and the usual complications arise, capped by a visit to an underground hell on Earth known as Topeka where the good citizens have a little survival problem of their own. Concluded with an ironic definition of good taste.

1975 film directed by L.Q. Jones (who makes a cameo as an actor in a porno film watched by the main character).

It is the story of a young man (Vic) in post-world war IV America who struggles for survival with his telepathic dog (Blood). Blood has the ability to sense females from a distance, which Vic takes full advantage of.
