Reading list for the post-apocalyptic writer, part 2

Have some openings on your nightstand?


Here are 20 more post-apocalyptic novels every writer in this genre should consider reading. I assume you've read The Stand already, and if you've ever considered self-publishing you know the Cinderella story that is Hugh Howey.


A few fun factoids from this list:


One Second After was blurbed by, of all people, Newt Gingrich.


Metro 2033 was the inspiration for two wildly popular video games (Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light)


The PD James on this list is the same PD James who is immensely popular as a writer of crime fiction.


So once you've put in your word count for the day on the novel you're writing, grab one of these. Consider it research, not lounging around!
