Post Apocalyptic Reading List
We did a lot of research while creating this site. We didn't limit ourselves to non-fiction resources; we also watched movies and read several fictional accounts of nuclear war.
We did this partly to get a feeling of the mood, and partly because they were just so darn entertaining. It's really quite interesting to see how different authors imagine the end of the earth.
We've included here several of the resources we consulted while making this website, as well as some of our favorite apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fictional works.
The classic apocalyptic novel that stunned the world.
A story of quiet heroes, striving to survive and even enjoy life after the bomb is dropped and Fort Repose loses communication...then electricity...then everything else from outside their small town.
Cute but silly, this 1983 cautionary fantasy stars Matthew Broderick as a teenage computer genius who hacks into the Pentagon's defense system and sets World War III into motion.
***THE classic movie about "The Bomb"!***
Funny and frightening, this black comedy about a group of military men who plan a nuclear apocalypse seems as relevant today as ever.
