"Not With a Bang" by Chapman Pincher is a science fiction novel published in 1976. The story is set in a near-future world where a catastrophic and mysterious plague wipes out almost all of humanity. The novel follows the journey of the few survivors as they navigate a drastically altered world.

The plot revolves around the central character, a scientist named Martin Peck, who is among the few spared by the deadly disease. Peck's scientific background drives him to seek answers about the plague's origins and the reasons behind its selective nature. As he travels through the desolate landscapes of post-apocalyptic England, Peck encounters other survivors, each dealing with the new reality in their own way. These interactions reveal various facets of human nature and society stripped to its bare essentials.

The novel delves into themes of survival, human resilience, and the quest for understanding in the face of inexplicable disaster. It raises questions about the fragility of civilization and the ethical implications of scientific advancements. Through its narrative, "Not With a Bang" explores the psychological and emotional toll of isolation and the innate human drive to rebuild and find meaning even after near-total annihilation.
