    Hey, since obviously the people who visit this site are big fans of post-holocaust-type novels, I thought I'd share a couple of great reads for those interested.

     

    The first brand-new novel is : The Return Man. This was a solid action/adventure zombie apocalypse novel. Check it out.

     

    For a more full-blown world ending action adventure read, much more like DL, check out James Jaro's - Burn Down the Sky.

     

    Both are excellent high-octane post-holocaust adventure reads.

    These novels sound great. Do you know who wrote The Return Man?

    Look them up on Amazon.com. But I think the guy's name who wrote it was Zito.

    I thought I would add this: Deathlands first came out in 1986. At about that same time, there were several other series along similar lines:

    Doomsday Warrior by Ryder Stacy

    Endworld by David Robbins

    The Guardians by Richard Austin

    Survivalist by Jerry Ahern

    Ashes by William W. Johnstone

    Anyone know of any others?

    I never had the opportunity to follow any of those. In the area where I lived at the time, the books were very hard to

    find. Deathlands was the only series that I was able to follow and never miss a volume. And that was only because

    I ordered many of them direct from Gold Eagle, rather than relying on book stores and their hit-and-miss ways.

    I can say that the first volume of the Doomsday Warrior series was quite good.

    Let's see...off the top of my head there was...

    Blade, The Maruaders, The Warlord, Outrider, Traveler, CADs, The Last Ranger (not be confused with The Last Rangers), Phoenix, Eagleheart, Wingman, The Zone...

    I'm sure I'm missing many...

    I read the second Doomsday book ages ago was quite good. I also read the First two Phoenix books too, good and very violent.

    Not a novel, but a short-story by one of the best sci-fi writers, Ray Bradbury, who died last week.  If you can believe it, this was written in 1950.  I heard it on the radio today, and had to track it down and re-read it.  This is post apocalyptic fiction at it's best - and equally amazing that it was written 60 years ago.
