Here’s a chart of the top Post-apocalyptic science fiction books, and when they were published.
In the 1950s, people worried about communism and nuclear war, and science fiction reflected those concerns. Around 1980, it was plague and danger from space, and science fiction reflected those concerns.
In a ruined and toxic future, a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep.
A high-altitude nuclear bomb detonates above the US, and the resulting electromagnetic pulse (EMP) fries the entire power grid and nearly every electronic device.
A nameless son and father wander a landscape blasted by an unspecified cataclysm that has destroyed most of civilization and, in the intervening years, almost all life on Earth. An indie (read: self-published) list entry, The Atlantis Plague is actually book two of a series, but its popularity and reviews are strong enough to warrant inclusion.
Some reviewers have complained about Howey’s over-complicated plots, stereotypical femme fatales, and long-suffering housewives. Instead of fencing off his world and characters, Hugh Howey has actively encouraged fans to write and publish their own fan fiction. When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. John Lennon was given a copy of Alas, Babylon in 1965 and spent all night reading the book, fueling his anti-war fervor and causing him to envision the people of the world attempting to crawl their way back from the horrors of a nuclear catastrophe. It does, however, feature the effects of genetic engineering, climate change run wild, and primitive semi-humans. Without warning, giant silver ships from deep space appear in the skies above every major city on Earth. Unrelated to the Silo series, Sand left some reviewers felt the ending was a little rushed.
Earth Abides tells the story of the fall of civilization from deadly disease and its rebirth.
Stephen King has stated that Earth Abides was an inspiration for his post-apocalyptic novel, The Stand (which almost made it on this list, but just wasn’t science-fictiony enough). Unfortunately, the book dates itself with references to hippies, Black Panthers, and Women’s Libbers, and by not liking any of those groups of people. This is Miller’s first and only novel, but he didn’t hold back: it spans thousands of years, chronicling the rebuilding of civilization after an apocalyptic event.
Despite early reviewers that called Miller a “dull, ashy writer guilty of heavy-weight irony,” it’s never been out of print in over 50 years. Like all the best post-apocalypse stories, the famous and well-respected On the Beach examines ordinary people facing nightmare scenarios. In this case, a mixed group of people in Melbourne await the arrival of deadly radiation spreading towards them from the northern hemisphere following a nuclear war.
Sequel to fellow list-member Oryx and Crake, in The Year of the Flood, the long-feared waterless flood has occurred, altering Earth as we know it and obliterating most human life.
Reviewers have noted that while the plot was sometimes chaotic, the novel’s imperfections meshed well with the flawed reality the book was trying to reflect. The Day Of The Triffids is a classic, one of the cornerstones of the post-apocalyptic genre.

Narrated by a ghost that watches over the million-year evolution of the last group of humans on the planet, Galapagos questions the merit of the human brain from an evolutionary perspective. Emergence is one of the overlooked gems of science fiction with a small but passionate following whose glowing reviews nudged this relatively unknown book onto this list. It follows a remarkable 11-year-old orphan girl, living in a post-apocalyptic United States.
Author Hoban was known more for his children’s books when he published Riddley Walker. I loved World War Z by Max Brooks (son of comedian and filmmaker Mel Brooks), but there wasn’t enough science in the fiction to warrant inclusion.
Yes, the movie was HORRIBLE; literally establishing the standard against which all awfulness will ever be measured again. The story is so good that, the first time I read it, I actually was sad that I had read it because I could never read it for the first time again. I agree whole heartedly, would also recommend David Robbins End World series, although I’ve only read a limited amount of the series because its not a very well known series. Firelance by David Mace, I shall await your reading of such, and watch for a review…. Someone realy should have the Deathlands series on this list author James Axler, we love these books. I’ve included a few of these in my own round-up, and it’d be great if you could check it out and let me know what you think!

Although maybe all human and domestic animal bones would have been eaten by other animals or biodegrated.
If this is a Japanese artist, they would probably feel it is disrespectful to portray a bare skull.
Yeah cmon you can see the growing plants and all, it's not like people have died an year ago..
I think it would be just immature and tasteless to put piles of bones in post-apocalyptic scenery like this so blah. In addition, it is the appropriation goods for the "Photograph" to have used others' books without permission. I like how the flooded streets in the Tokyo Tower image spell out "okaeri-nasai" in katakana. Tambien me recuerda a "Giniro no Kami no Agito" en las imagenes donde la naturaleza invade el entorno en ruinas. I have been to many of these places and this is, I would say, what it might look like with no human involvement. Not even during the Cold War were science fiction books about the apocalypse and life afterward so popular.

War, viruses, natural global disasters, genetically modified humans, computers run amok, you name it. There, men and women live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them. However, given his massive popularity, those issues (if they even exist) haven’t bothered too many people. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness.
No nuclear war, no bizarro plague, no surly computers, and no genetic experiment gone haywire.
It traces the fate of the world after a comet shower blinds most of the world’s population. Set in a remote future in a post-nuclear holocaust England (Inland), Hoban has imagined a humanity regressed to an iron-age, semi-literate state—and invented a language to represent it. I dream with my neighbourhoud becoming like that pictures a lot of days, and I think that the world whould be a better place.
More like 15 years ago, when bones have become a part of the soil already or modified for tools lol.
Sheriff Holston, who has unwaveringly upheld the silo’s rules for years, unexpectedly breaks the greatest taboo of all: He asks to go outside.
The few with sight must struggle to reconstruct society while fighting mobile, flesh-eating plants called triffids.
Riddley is at once the Huck Finn and the Stephen Dedalus of his culture—rebel, change agent, and artist. That score probably doesn’t hold up to much statistical scrutiny, but it worked as a good starting place. I mean that those greenery scenes make me happy, i guess people will start to understand that the nature is part of the world too, not only humans, technology and concrete jungles.
Como Subaru 2010 ha contado, me hace recordar de algunas escenas de "NAUSICAA" y "El catillo en el cielo" de Estudio Ghibli.
This is our life, diving for remnants of the old world so that we may build what the wind destroys. I’ve recommended it many times, often loaning out my ragged personal copy, and the reviews have been utterly singular in their ringing praise. As Subaru 2010 mentioned, these reminds me of some scenes of "NAUSICAA" and "Castle in the Sky" of Studio Ghibli. If all you ever see is concrete jungles, take a few step out of the city and look around before you post ignorant crap like that.
It's you sheeple listening to all the stupid news stations and crap without researching anything for yourself that piss me off the most.
