Apocalyptic Fiction (Part 2 of 4)
The Purple Cloud
"First published in 1930 and it shows it. Probably quite original at the time, but not great."
Dark December (Coronet Books)
"Quite a decent story, but I can't believe that nuclear war wouldn't be a lot worse."
"A very unusual twist on the apocalypse where mankind voluntarily commits suicide as a species."
"The guy who plays Geordi LaForge in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' can act better than he can write about meteor strikes."
"A pretty average story set in the US after a devastating earthquake changes life as we know it."
"A never-ending drought causes a severe water shortage to the point where everyone has to relocate to the coast to survive."
Scent of New-mown Hay
"A biological experiment goes wrong and produces a plant-based disease that only affects women."
The Kraken Wakes
"Mysterious creatures from the deep sea threaten mankind."
Total War (Survivalist)
"First in a series of 29 books about a weapons and survival expert in the US after a nuclear war. Very gung-ho and a bit silly but lots of action."
Sun Grows Cold
"A man in a psychiatric hospital trys to find out how the world outside the city walls was destroyed."
Twilight World (Sphere science fiction)
"Genetic mutations become common after after an all-out nuclear war."
Some Will Not Die
"An expedition sets out to find the man who reunited America after a devastating plague."
For Zachariah (New Windmills)
"Intended to be a children's book about a girl who survives a nuclear war alone in a sheltered valley. Suitable for adults too."
Children Of The Dust (Definitions)
"Another children's book that adults can enjoy, if that's the right word for a story about a nuclear war. Set in the UK."
Ende: A Diary of the Third World War
"Diary of a German man during a nuclear war. A bit tedious at points, but an interesting perspective from someone in the middle of the NATO and Warsaw Pact forces."
Damnation Alley (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
"Terrible film, average book for a great writer. Very cliched story of a criminal travelling across the US to deliver a vital drug following a nuclear war."
The Folk of the Fringe
"Four linked short stories about a group of people in Utah after a limited nuclear exchange reduces America to a kind of 'wild west'."
This is the Way the World Ends
"A dark comedy about the only man to survive a nuclear war. I hated it but most people seem to like this book."
False Dawn (A Panther book)
"A fairly typical, but enjoyable, example of post-apocalyptic fiction."
"A man travels from Japan to Germany after everyone else mysteriously dies in an epidemic."
"Bleak disjointed story about an amnesiac woman in a London buried in snow."
"A poetic journey across a rural post-apocalyptic America."
The Steel the Mist and the Blazing Sun
"World War II style military fiction set around 200 years after a nuclear war."
The Hospital Ship
"A bit weird. A hospital ship picks up survivers following a global disaster."
Against the Grain
"Economic collapse leads to a frontier type existance."
