The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

First Paragraphs

Help me. Help me. Jahalazar, came the soft voice. Like silken feathers it eased its way into my brain, rousing me from the depths of sleep.

I, Jahalazar of the purple locks, sprang awake, a sinewy arm reaching for Chernac, the Throwing Sword, as I rolled from the bed to alight upon shoeless feet crouched. I raised the steel length of the Throwing Sword before me. Its blade shimmered in the darkness. My toes dug into the turf of the carpet. I stood ready to strike as my purple eyes swept the chamber dimly lit by the rising of the rust-red sun. They rested fleetingly upon the outlines of furniture and statues. They searched out the shadows and reassured me that I was alone. Everything in the chamber was at it should be. No unknown shapes were visible. My ears, usually flat against my broad skull, were spread wide, gathering in every sound of the premorning night. Again, I heard nothing out of place, nor was anyone yet stirring. The house of Clan Chevy was still asleep. Not even the cooking women had risen to start the breakfast fires.

John M. Faucette's The Age of Ruin (which was one of the first adult SF novels that I read) originally published as an Ace Double (with Mack Reynolds' Code Duello) back in the 60s. The Age of Ruin is still my favorite post-apocalypse story, filled as it is with action-adventure galore and highly imaginative vistas. Frankly, this novel has more imagination in it than any other post-holocaust novel that I've read. (e)
A memorable novel.
