From time to time I see books on sale (both fiction and non-fiction) which deal with coping with a breakdown of law and order. So I thought I would start a relevant thread. Everyone is welcome to post titles he comes upon, whether professionally published or self-published.

Ahh! The 13 year old anarchist in me thought you were looking for fiction! I love this genre.

I enjoyed:

IceQuake by Crawford Killian

New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson, (more post apocalyptic, but still cool)

Tsunami by Crawford Killian

The entire "After America" series by John Birmingham.

The 3 "The Island" novels portion of SM Stirling's "The Change" series. More survivalist than 'mystic' like the rest of The Change. This is what happened to Nantucket Island that disappears in "The Change". Start with "The Island in the Sea of Time". I believe this was the first "Change" novel or, rather seems to be the first and then Stirling got interested in other aspects of the possible series. I liked these three novels better than many of the other "Change" novels, and wish he'd continue this time line.

I thought this thread was about that 1980's Men's Adventure series by Jerry Ahern: The Survivalist

TWENTY-SEVEN Books!?! There's got to be a stinker or two in that list! How can an author avoid hating his characters?

Maybe he figured every word he wrote was gold?

I haven't read the books myself, but I remember seeing them in bookstore shelves all the time. I did a bit of research and the first nine or ten books tell one story. Then things jump ahead five hundred years thanks to the magic of cryogenics.

Well, he got farther than Geo. RR Martin, I guess. I always thought Martin should end the series with The Hound, Tyrion, and Arya getting caught in a 'time warp' accidentally created by Bran Stark, and they end up in 1940's Los Angeles, and they start a Detective agency.

Actually, that sort of 'Beverly Hillbillies' meets "China Town" would probably qualify as a survivalist story, I think.
