Twenty Core Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic Speculative Fiction Works Every True SF Fan Should Have On Their Shelves

As with the previous core lists, here are twenty Post-Apocalyptic Speculative Fiction Works chosen entirely on the basis of merit and significance to the field 1.


No implication is intended that these are the only twenty books you should consider.




Persons unfamiliar with one or two of the works, congratulations! You’re one of today’s Ten Thousand!

Feel free to comment here.

1: There are two filtering rules:

  • Only one work per author per list
  • Any given work can appear on only one list

Please note: comments will be read-only for the next week or two; Livefyre has ceased service, and we are doing some site maintenance.
