Swan Song is my all time favorite sci-fi doom book but I also enjoyed the Word & Void series and The Genesis of Shannara series by Terry Brooks.

Re: apocalyptic books - the best one you have read
Minor nitpick: it is 'Earth Abides' not 'The Earth Abides'.

Cold Creek Cash Store

The Earth Next Door

Parable of the Sower

Sorry. Memory's not perfect. Just rattled them off the top of my head.
 Quoting: Tattau


I think Earth Abides came out in 1948 so it's one of the original apocalyptic environmental disaster books.

One book I haven't seen mentioned is Farnam's Freehold by Robert Heinlein.

Been a very long time since I read it though.

He was wrong about everything, what exactly are you referring to, "that you are seeing today"?

Not really apocalyptic but all Stephen King Books, especially the Dark Tower series and Talisman / Black House.

Your post did make me dig out two books I read years ago by Patrick Tilley, "Mission" and "XAN", both great reads but Mission is a great different take on Jesus and Aliens.

World War Z, by Max Brooks, also his survival guide for a zombie apocalypse, J.L Bourne's series on Zombies "Day by Day Armageddon", and "Day by Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile" his third book is due out in June. Godd reads, lots of action and fun if you like zombies.

Paolo Bacigalupi is a promising new author. Does really effective dystopian fiction.

Start with Pump Six and then read The Windup Girl. So good, trust me-- I read books like it's my job.
