A Practical Fiction List for Surviving After the Apocalypse
a book list by Shannon Turlington, Blogger at Books Worth Reading
Tsunamis in the Pacific... global climate change... devastating earthquakes... the year 2012 looming on the horizon... it's no wonder that the apocalypse has been on a lot of minds lately. But if you’re one of the (un)lucky ones to survive the actual big event, then what should you do? As usual, we turn to books for the answer. I selected the following (flashlight worthy) novels for their focus on what comes after the end, rather than the end itself. They attempt to answer the all-important question: Now what?
(Note that books that depict unlikely events following the apocalypse — say, showdowns with the Devil... or attacks by roving zombie hordes — have been omitted. C'mon, we're interested in practical survival guides.)
