Default List Your Favorite Fictional Doomsday/Apocalypse/Preparation Books

Please list your favorites. It's always nice to have a new read.
Some of mine are:

"One Second After"

"Patriots"

"Molon Labe"

"Unintended Consequences"

"Enemies, Foreign & Domestic"

"American Apocalypse" & "American Apocalypse II"

"Civil War II"

About the first ten or so books of the "Ashes" series by Wm. Johnstone

I haven't thougt about the Ashes books in a long time. A friend was reading and buying them and passed them to me. I don't even know how far I got in them, but it got kind of far-fetched after a while. Something about a space shuttle landing on the interstate comes to mind.

The same friend has the Rawles book that I'm supposed to get from him sometime.

"One Second After" changed my outlook on the Apocalypse!!

Then there are:

Farham's Freehold by Robert Heinlein
The Postman by David Brin

Is Unintended Consequences available online or only in print?

"The Stand" Steven King

Fireguy, I agree. The first Ashes books were pretty good and then he rode that horse into the ground.

Oh yeah, I just finished "Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse". It was interesting.
