I'm currently reading the third book in Justin Cronin's The Passage series and I have to say, this trilogy is up there with the best apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic books I've read. If I was to compile a short list of my favourites, it would look like this:

Cormac McCarthy - The Road
John Wyndham - The Day of the Triffids
Stephen King - The Stand
Robert R McCammon - Swan Song
Justin Cronin - The Passage/The Twelve/The City of Mirrors


Please post your favourites!

Great thread! The Stand is an absolute classic. It takes place in 1985 and I first read it that same year. It added an extra element of eeriness.

Just picked up The Passage - thanks for the recommendation.

Brett Battles - A Project Eden series (drags a bit in places but overall very good)

Regarding Cormac McCarthy, this video is really interesting. Kenneth Lincoln, an English professor at UCLA, explains how McCarthy's Blood Meridian, The Border Trilogy, and No Country For Old Men are all connected.

I meant to add The Road.

So:
