Default Anybody else like post-apocalyptic books?

I like mine as real a scenario as I can get. I'm running out of prospects for new books. Anybody got any suggestions? I dont really like Zombies, Vampires, etc. I like to read about how they survived in a realistic sense. I've read

One Second After
Lucifers Hammer
The Passage
Patriots
The Road
Alas Babylon
Earth Abides
Wastelands
The Begining
Refuge
Lights Out
Edan
The Walk
New Coastal Times
Three Mokes East

The Dead Zone - Stephen King is along those lines.

On another note, Book of Eli is on HBO tonight. Good flick.

agreed with Stein on Book of Eli. I have never read any post-apocalyptic books. But have always been fascinated with games and movies about it. I like it for the same reason, its seems like its such a more plausible thing happening rather than zombies attacking.

Saw Book of Eli, have you guys seen the TV series Jericho? It was pretty cool.

Never tried a book like that. I like adventure, courtroom and political satires.

I highly recommend "Farnham's Freehold". It's not 100% dead-nuts on your genre, but it has some elements in it.
