    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.

    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.

    Fantastic read by Larry Niven ^^^ (love all his stuff) Another one by him is "A world out of Time".

    I can also recommend "World War Z" , a zombie apocalypse book that supposedly they are going to make a movie out of.

    Patriots and One Second after were definitely good reads.
    I just finished World War Z, it was entertaining but i don't buy into the whole 'zombie apocalypse' thing but it was still a good read.
