    Howdo all. Fairly new to the whole post apocalypse scene. Read a few bits and bobs. The postman (much better book than film), I am legend & The road (better films than books!) Autumn series, World war z, JL bournes day by day armageddon, Alas babylon, The passage & The twelve, and Quite a few of jerry Aherns The survivalist series (got a little sick of mr. rourkes endless skill set) Two of my favourite books of all time are David Grahams Down to a sunless sea...UK edition and Robert McCammons Swan song. Am currently ploughing on with the Deathlands but am always on the look out for other materials. Any suggestions would be very welcome.

    There is a whole slew of them kicking about at the moment one of the best of them IMHO is "Go Go Girls of the Apocalypse" by Victor Gischler. Very funny but brutal at the same time.

    Welcome aboard!

     

    Man, there is not much better than SWAN SONG. Love that book!

     

    Most recent that come to mind are the three I have tried to tell the folks here, but never got any feedback on: James Jaros' Burn Down the Sky and its sequel, and The Return Man by Zito, along with my favorite - Cannibal Reign by Koloniar.

    They get to England but not Scotland. The Outlanders series brings the characters from that series to the next best thing though - Liverpool

    I also have Scottish blood, I'm a McLeod (the highlander) and there really can be only one of me thankfully!!

    hahaha!!! Love it. I've no heard that for a while. Yes i am indeed a hibee. Never really had any time for the bhoys or the blue noses (never understood the whole religion aspect of it) but your lot have been proper turned over by the powers that be. To the detriment of scottish football. Hope you stick two fingers up at them and move south. Deep fried mars bars.... Wrong on so many levels!!!!! As a nation we will deep fry anything, pies, pizza's, mars bars. Think even a half a half starved ryan would balk at that one.
