Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Apocalypse Now! 2018 Reading Challenge

Apocalypse Now! 2018 Reading Challenge

Don't you ever just want to watch the world burn? Well, so do I! Let's have a nuclear campfire and read a bunch of apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction together! Got your respirators on?

The Rules:

* Any genre of fiction is acceptable, so long as it focuses on the end of the world as we know it.

* Re-reads are okay, but you must have read the book more than five years ago or it must be a new edition.

* Dystopias only count if they follow the end of the world. (So Oryx and Crake counts, but The Handmaid's Tale does not because only the United States went to hell; the rest of the world is doing just fine.)

* Video game and RPG tie ins are absolutely acceptable as long as the Apocalypse is the focus (so Dark Sun novels are perfect, but Mechwarrior is not; Fallout, Wasteland and The Last of Us are perfect, but Mass Effect is not)

* People found this a little much at the higher levels last year, so this year I've dialed it back a bit.

See you in the wastelands; if we survive!
