Post-Apocalyptic Forums

To round out this week where I’ve suggested several websites of interest to preppers, I’d like to mention one of my personal favorites. Post-Apocalyptic Forums is THE place for discussing end of the world fiction. While the message board may not be as active as some others, the members there know more about dystopian futures than anyone else around.

Looking for a good book about pandemics? How about help with remembering the title of a movie you saw late one night a decade ago? Just ask and I’m sure one or more of the members can help you find what you seek.

There are sub-sections of the forum devoted to the more practical aspects of survival as well. Lots of good, solid info from folks who know what they are talking about.

One of the things I like the most about this message board is the utter and complete lack of flaming, arguing, and other not-so-nice behavior. I’ve been a member there for a few years now and I have yet to see any posts from anyone that are less than polite and cordial. Great people all around.

Have a great weekend, everyone. I’ll be on the road for much of it, attending an academic tournament with my kids. Wish us luck!

Jim Cobb has been a student of survivalism and emergency preparedness for almost thirty years. As a young child, he drove his parents nuts with stockpiling supplies in the basement every time he heard there was a tornado watch in his area. Of course, being a child, those supplies consisted of his teddy bear, a few blankets and pillows, and random canned goods he grabbed from the kitchen cabinets. Later, he was the first (and likely only) child in his fifth grade class to have bought his very own copy of Life After Doomsday by Bruce Clayton. Today, he is a freelance writer whose work has been published in national magazines such as Boy’s Life and Complete Survivalist Magazine. He is a voracious reader with a keen interest in all stories with post-apocalyptic settings. He maintains the Library at the End of the World blog and is also the Content Director for He currently resides in a fortified bunker in the upper Midwest, accompanied by his lovely wife and their three adolescent Weapons of Mass Destruction. Jim's first book, Prepper's Home Defense, was published late 2012 and his second book, tentatively titled The Prepper's Complete Guide to Disaster Readiness, will be out in mid-2013, both coming from Ulysses Press.
