I'm often contacted by authors who ask if I wouldn't mind reading their work and posting a review.  I try not to make a habit of this as it makes me uncomfortable, so my answer is usually "I'm sorry, but no." But once in a while, one will come along and my gut tells me …

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEGmdjdqDJU I came across Tyler Bumpus early this past winter of 2016 (February, more specifically) when I read the first book in his Swallowed World post-apocalypse series, The Eternal Season.  I was enthralled... I was amazed... this was one seriously kick-ass PA story.  You can read my review here. There have been two postapoc stories that …

So, what exactly is the Wasteland?… Guest blog by Carrie Bailey

I was recently contacted by author Carrie Bailey, asking me if she could write a guest post on my blog.  Naturally, my reply was "Absolutely!". Carrie is self described as a "Writer. Artist. Coffee drinker. Minimalist. Global nomad. Professional information gatherer. Lover of logic. Conversationalist." I know her as an author of post-apocalyptic fiction and an excellent example …

Humanicide – a French Post-Apocalyptic Short Film…

It must be almost a year ago now when I became interested in this project from the French film studio, Algo Studios.  I had followed them on Twitter and their Facebook Page, and although I don't speak a lick of French, my computer does, so thank God for technology!  Guillaume and I would sometimes have …

Here it is... Part 2 of my Favorite Post-Apocalypse Films of the 1980's.  Its taken me quite some time to cull the herd down to these ones.  A warning... some of these are considered terrible - but that's their charm.  Hell, most folks think most of these suck.  That's ok.  I thought Guardians of the …

Who’s my favorite writer? Glad you asked…

 When I was in Junior High ('82-'83), I found a book in the school library called The Long  Afternoon of Earth by Brian Aldiss.  I thought it was absolutely fascinating!  It was an abridged  version of Hothouse, but I wouldn't learn that until many years later.  Flash forward to sometime in the mid-90's and I …

My Favorite Post-Apocalypse Movies of the 1970’s…

And now we've come to the 70's.  There is just something cool about the movies made during that time and the post-apocalypse genre was really coming into it's own.  We were now moving a bit away from the standard Atom Bomb and the Mutated Monster and beginning to portray a society that had devolved into …

My favorite Post-Apocalypse movies of the 1950’s…

The Atom Bomb...  Radiation...  Mutation... These were big buzzwords in the 1950's and gave rise to a breed of film that exploited them to the fullest.  The 50's was really the full dawn of the post-apocalypse film.  I'd like the take the opportunity to present some of my favorites from that time.  These are not …
