I am reading the Dies the Fire series that Watcher has mentioned a couple of times. Very enjoyable thus far.

 

It really depends on what you like, HBT.  I am a fan of murder mysteries.  I have read the majority of the books by James Paterson as well as Patricia Cornwell.  If you like some humor mixed in, try Janet Evanovich.

One of my favorite series (I only read about 1/3 of them, hard to find any more but they show up at used book stores all the time.  I'm going to try to collect them so I can read the entire series).

 

 

The Survivalist series by Jerry Ahern.  It had some great details and gives lots of ideas about realistic survival in a post apocalyptic world (Scavenging, whats useful what isn't, ideas for using scavenged materials  etc).

I'm a HUGE Luis Lamore fan.  My father had almost all the books, I've read them so many times.  Them Sackets are my favorites.  :woot: :woot:

I need to finish "Lights Out"  and "299 days".  I'm half way through both and even though they are excellent reads (Although lights out has way too many "Coincidences" to be plausible (299 days is dead nuts accurate).  I just never seem to have the time to read.

Dust by Charles Pellegrino.

 

The writing is not good quality, but typical of sci-fi fare written (by a scientist in this case) and the premise is very thought-provoking, unusual, and not implausible.

 

Paleontological evidence suggests that approximately every 33 million years a pattern of genetic timers cause some key species of insects, such as aphids and fungus gnats, to die off in mass extinctions.  What if this were to happen now? 

 

Within a span of a few months all the ants die off, which sets into motion an ecological collapse of insects and the plants and fauna dependent upon them, as scientists around the world work frantically to restore critical insect populations. 

 

Hope this helps,

- Martin

If you get the chance, read "Last of the Breed" by Louis L'Amour.  It's about a U.S. Air Force officer and test pilot who is half Lakota Sioux.  The Soviets manage to shoot him down and capture him in order to get information from him, but they didn't know that when he was growing up he learned all of the old ways.  He escapes and makes his way home--all the way across Siberia!  A great adventure and survival story.
