You know how much I love the Survivalist Series brother, especially the first 5 books in the series. My set was so old (paperback, probably Mass Market) they were about to fall apart.

HOLY CRAP! They're on Kindle !!! 🙃 It must have been some time since I checked. Well I've got the first 3 in the series loading now. Thanks my friend! 🙂

I'll add Johnstone 's Ashes to my list.

I know you guys wouldn't let me down! 👍

I've been really lucky(?) in finding first edition copies of both the Ashes and the Survivalist series books on E-bay and thru thriftbooks that are in pretty good condition for 30+ year old paperbacks.

Let me add Jerry Ahern's Survivalist Series. Kinda old and dated now; but pretty good. And the books he collaborated on with his wife Sharon wer even better. BTW, Jerry Ahern passed away last year, so

I second One Second After. Very very good book.

Those look good.  Id love to read them, but lordy 15 bucks for a paperback?  Outta my price range.

Yes. Prices have gone totally insane on books. Paperbacks especially.

I've been hitting estate sales recently with my wife. I've been giving $1 or less for HB and PB on final days of sales. No one wants to haul heavy books around. lol

I've gotten everything from Clive Cussler, John Grisham. Dean Koontz, and Stephen Coonts; to hard core syfy. About anything you can name. I'm sure I've brought home close to 200 books in the last 2 years.

Downside is that they take up so much room.

Schlicter's "Indian Country" was very good, IMHO it's the best of the series thus far.  "Collapse" was okay, it does give a good idea of how guerillas operate.  I'm looking forward to his next novel.

Ok, you guys have gotten me interested. Kurt Schlichter is now on my active search list!

Recently read 2 series by Boyd Craven III. Decently written, but could have been proof read and edited a little more professionally. Anyway, based in Arkansas which is nice as I know the areas which is always fun in a book series.

Def not War & Peace or any other literary giant but if you want an easy read that buys you an escape from the current craziness that is our daily life go check them out...

Found some more good books to add to people's lists:

American Wasteland by Nick Cole.  Good post apocalyptic series.  

Surviving the Crash series by Jeff Kirkam  and Jason Ross; Black Autumn is the first book.

Anecdotally, I've always been a science fiction fan, but the one book that got me into this sub-genre was Andre Norton's Daybreak 2250 A.D.  I probably already liked her SF books, and read many of them over the years, but this was my first post-apocalyptical novel.  It wasn't great, but it really sparked my interest.  Incidentally, she lived her last years in Murfreesboro,TN.
