The first two novels in the above list are also the first two volumes in the thirty-four volume post-holocaust series written by the late great William W. Johnstone. Known simply as "The Ashes" series, they represent one of the most controversial pile of paperbacks that you're ever likely to see. Mr. Johnstone makes Rush Limbaugh look like a piker when it comes to his distain for liberals in general, and the liberal mindset in particular. And since "most" of this country's news and entertainment media have been just left of Marx for longer than the last half of my fifty-four years, you can just bet what they thought and still think about Mr. Johnstone!
Note: Since I compiled this list a several of years ago, several of these titles have come back into print. You'll just have to do a book search to find out what's currently available. But I have yet to fail finding a good used reasonably price copy of any book by using a www.amazon.com book title search.
Three major motion pictures were made from the twenty-first title from the above list. The first was "The Last Man On Earth (1964)" staring Vincent Price. The second was "The Omega Man (1971)", staring Charlton Heston. And the most recent version, "I Am Legend (2007)" staring Will Smith. It is my humble opinion that if taken in the context of the decades in which each was released, all three were very good films and should be in anybody's video library.
