The idea behind this blog is to share my opinions about Post-Apocalyptic Literature, Films and Ephemera as well as my random nattering on a regular basis.

An Anniversary Inspired Contest

The first post to this humble blog was Thursday, September 18, 2008. So in honor of this glorious event I will be giving away some of my duplicate books. Remember in school when there was the matching section of the test? Anyhow that will be the way in which you -yes YOU - will have in your possession the following books:

The Stand (uncut) by Stephen King
Ill Wind by Kevin J. Anderson and Doug Beason
Plague byGraham Masterton
Afterwar by Janet Morris
Dust by Charles Pellegrino
Shiva Descending by Gregory Benford and William Rotsler
Black Sun by Robert Leininger
The Taking by Dean Koontz

Match the following books to their synopsis:

A)Earth Abides by George R. Stewart
B) Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon
C) Fire by Alan Rodgers
D)Blood Crazy by Simon Clark
E)Dark Advent by Brian Hodge
F)Blakely’s Ark by Ian MacMillan
G)Dust by Charles Pellegrino
H)Eternity Road by Jack McDevitt
I) Skeletons by Al Sarrantonio

1) A crazed geneticist seeks to bring about Armageddon through the magic of science - the dead rise and The Beast is loosed upon the world.

2) The dead fight the living until there is a single man and woman left. Abraham Lincoln gets a chance for vengeance on John Wilkes Booth.

3) Sue Wanda. Fear death by water.

4)Humanity turns into a bunch of neanderthals. Did Stephen king lift the idea from this to write Cell? Perhaps.

5) A quest for the lost treasures of The Roadmakers.

6) The smallest of insects prove to be man's undoing.

7) Much like The Stand but without Randal Flagg

8) A hermit returns to civilization to find it gone. Traces him and his family as they slowly return to the cave.

9) In the aftermath of a plague a young man gets a ticket to paradise.

First one to correctly match all nine gets the prize. Happy reading. Post answers in the comments. Winner announced November 18th.

Hey, just wanted to say "Hi". Just came across your blog via your comment on The Apocalyptic Post.

As you mentioned, it's always cool to find another fan of post-apocalyptic fiction.

I also have a personal blog at, and also am trying to set up a news aggregation site at (Doesn't quite work yet, for not it just forwards to my Netvibes page.)

Hope you don't mind, I added your feed to the news page.
