Howard white I am swiping a copy of this well thought out list for my own use at my public library . There are a lot of titles not usually mentioned on this type of PA novels lists. Thanks.


message 2: by jw (last edited Jan 26, 2015 09:16AM) (new)

jw No Damnation Alley or Night of the Long Knives? What about a Boy and his Dog? These are more of the classic SF genre, but surely apocalyptic and recommended for anyone interested in such tales. The Broken Empire series from Mark Lawrence was compelling as well, though a bit cliche in places.
