Summer continues with no time for reading today, or over the next month. So I’m making a list.
Wars and rumors of wars is a hallmark of the start of the end of time. What will the world look like then? The Book Smugglers has a fantastic review of several books dealing with the post-apocalypse. Wars aren’t the only cause of the apocalypse, these days, we also have environmental catastrophes, and these are covered here, too.
I can’t affirm any of what they say because I haven’t read any of these books, but they are each on my look for list for a closer look and, most likely, an enjoyable read. They also do an admirable conjur of Rod Serling to add fun to the bucket of books they discuss. Head there for a very interesting list.
The post-apocalypse in literature is an interesting genre. It synthesizes the fears and hopes we have for life as we know it now, and what it will be if we don’t leash the worst of our human nature.
