    “The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish.” —Robert Louis Stevenson.

It about a military experiments on death-row convicts that goes horribly wrong (they're trying to turn them into super soldiers) and they escape and inflect the world (the USA anyway) with a vampirism type virus. A great tale that really grips.
    I forgot about this one. His first book was great. I'm going to wait until the series is over before I buy the rest. Then I'm going to take a vacation and read them all at once.

    Philip K Dick - Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep is excellent.
    Richard Matheson - I Am Legend
    Kurt Vonnegut - Cat's Cradle. Not post-apocalyptic strictly speaking but the theme arches the whole work. My favorite Vonnegut book.

    Ditto on The Stand and The Road. Two very solid reads.

    I am Legend was an excellent book. The movie wasn't able to do it justice. The black and white version called "The Last Man On Earth" came the closest and was by far the best. Heston's Omega Man was good, too. I am Legend the movie wasn't bad, just never came close to the book.

    Ditton on The Postman and Day of the Triffids.

    If no one has read Day of the Triffids, I highly recommend it.

    "77 Days in September" by Ray Gorham is an EXCELLENT apocalyptic book. It isn't as intense as the Walking Dead, but a great read.

    I loved this book. I thought the style was well placed.
