End of the world Apocalypse/EMP/Nuke books
What you got on this spectrum? I like to read books that keep me up at night. These are some of my favorites.

Swan Song by Robert McCammon. It was written - and takes place - in the 80s when the threat of nuclear Armageddon was real. It's one of my favorite books.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy is an obvious suggestions, but I'm sure you've read that one already.

"The Gone-Away World" if you're up for some science fiction in this genre.

+1

I'll add The Pesthouse by Jim Crace. It's been a while since I read it. I wouldn't put it anywhere near as good as McCarthy, but it was readable.

I'll second Swan Song, though it is heavy on fantasy.

Canticle for Liebowitz is really good, also a bit more sci-fi/fantasyish.

Earth Abides is good, a more realistic look at the apocalypse.

Good Omens is one of my favorite books, hilarious and heavy on fantasy. The TV series should be out soon.

I just read Fever, which was good.

Loved The Stand and liked Swan Song, as a point of comparison.

The Wool series or the Joe Ledger series. If you like audiobooks then go with Ledger. Ray Porter narrates so you know it is great.
