Good News is a 1980 novel by Edward Abbey.

It is set in a Phoenix, Arizona of the near future after the economy and government have collapsed. Small bands of people (including Jack Burns, the hero from an earlier Abbey novel The Brave Cowboy) are trying to live freely, but a would-be military dictator has other plans and is trying to set up a dictatorship using Phoenix as his base.

Good News is Abbey's only work of science fiction.
