Hi all, it may have been asked before, apologies. Can anyone give me literature suggestions for UK based prepping/eotwawki novels please. I would rather more realistic story lines- not zombie/aliens etc. My imagination may stretch to EMP though.

Snow by Ryan Clifford (four books - they tail off rather a lot, but the first two are pretty good).

UK Dark 1 2 and 3.

All the John Wyndham books - Day of the Triffids, The Kraken Wakes, etc. Oldies, but goodies.

Maybe...... "The Knowledge. How to rebuild our world after an apocalypse" Lewis Dartnell

An interesting and [practical?] read.

Just about to start John Lancaster's "The Wall"

Will let you know next week.

Thanks for that suggestion. I just read the blurb, and it sounds just what I am after.

Fair point. :lol:
Plenty scope for a sequel though and if you get in first.... I hear there's money to be made. :)
