Survivalist Bargains

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.

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.

And the most recent in the series is definitely very into mystic. I think a third of it takes place in a dreamlike state.

A SHTF sampler

doh! I missed the free and bargain requirement. I have noted that some of the books are on Kindle Unlimited
---------
I am a fan of this genre and I break it down into subcategories. Some of my favorites with their Amazon book number in parentheses:

Post-EMP (electromagnetic pulse that destroys all electric power plants, electronic devices, cars and their computer systems)

The granddaddy and one of the best is "One second after" by William Forstchen (B002LATV16). Ex-military college professor in small town in North Carolina (IIRC) and his family and town people cope with the aftermath. Other books in series good but not as good as first one.

"Lights out" by David Crawford (B004GHNGKE) Mark (karate man) Turner and his family deal with nature and MZB's (murant zombie bikers) after the EMP. BTW, despite the name this is NOT a zombie book, which I despise.

The Jeremy's Run series by G.F. Gustav (B00CQU5SEK). As one reviewer puts it " 95% conversation, 5% action, but don't let that throw you--the conversation is highly informative and the action, when it happens, is necessary, logical, and highly satisfying (to his credit, the author doesn't "invent" situations just to stage a fight)." The author is an engineer who minored in theology and both sides come out. (Kindle Unlimited)

Non-EMP SHTF:

The Shattered series by Thomas Sherry (Deep Winter B004J171BC is the first one). The hero, Rick Drummond, is the pompous, highly annoying patriarch of a family in Spokane Washington in the aftermath of a series of devastating earthquakes and volcano eruptions in the Northwest that eventually bring down all the US. Don't be put off by the annoying character, the author knows his stuff and brings up a lot of important issues on how society is going to recover from a disaster with loss of our high tech infrastructure. The last book in the three book series is cr*p. Kindle unlimited.

Political SHTF
The Enemies trilogy by Matthew Bracken (Enemies Foreign And Domestic B004JF4L98). Be warned-highly political. Starts out with ATF carrying out false flag terrorist incident that is used by corrupt government to crack down on freedom loving gun toting conservatives. Other books in series cover Reconquista by Hispanics in Southwest with collusion by US president and third book is war between mercenaries called in by corrupt government and said freedom loving, gun toting, conservatives in Tennessee. (all three Kindle unlimited)

There are more but that is all I have time for.
