  ReadingGroupGuides.com - The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Set in the smoking ashes of a postapocalyptic America, Cormac McCarthy's The Road tells the story of a man and his son's journey toward the sea and an uncertain salvation.
The world they pass through is a ghastly vision of scorched countryside and blasted cities "held by cores of flened looters who tunneled among the ruins and crawled from the rubble white of tooth and eye carrying charred and anonymous tins of food in nylon nets like shoppers in the commissaries of hell" [p.
McCarthy envisions a postapocalyptic world in which "murder was everywhere upon the land" and the earth would soon be "largely populated by men who would eat your children in front of your eyes" [p.

  San Francisco Bay Guardian Arts and Entertainment
AT THE END of Liz Duffy Adams's darkly comic The Train Play, which Crowded Fire premiered in the Bay Area in 2002, the obnoxious girl who has plagued the train's passengers for the duration of their journey is the only one to fearlessly leap out the window after they arrive, unexpectedly, at oblivion.
Her preteen enthusiasm has the lust for conquest in it, an eagerness to claim the horizon opened up by catastrophe, as if coiled in her was all the energy needed to remake the world and destroy it once more.
Perhaps most impressively, she has her generous and loquacious believer, Rozetta, speaking a postapocalyptic patois (surprisingly natural-sounding with Donohue's finely pitched delivery) of mangled words, malapropisms, and once-fashionable phrases – all transmitted from a scattered past via a historic game of telephone.

 No Mutants Allowed :: View topic - Postapocalyptic Punisher
Unless you're a fan of Marvel Comics, you might just not know that there's a new post-apoc Punisher novel out.
It's called "THE END" and it's about Frank Castle making his way to a bunker through a destroyed world, and heaven help anyone who stands in his path.

 Product Spotlight: d20 Apocalypse Designer Interview
In this month's exclusive interview, Charles Ryan, one of the designers of the exciting new d20 Apocalypse supplement for the d20 Modern game, discusses the familiar yet alien nature of the postapocalyptic world and how it applies to campaigns set in the wake of world-shaking disasters.
The allure of the postapocalyptic world is potent indeed -- witness the popularity of such movies as The Day after Tomorrow, War of the Worlds, and George Romero's "Dead" films.
Even though I had already moved to the business team by then, Chris Perkins invited me to that meeting because he knew that the postapocalyptic setting was a favorite of mine -- in part because he was a player in the postapocalyptic campaign I had been running for the past couple of years.

 RPGnet: Review of Neuroshima
Neuroshima is a postapocalyptic game currently available only in Polish.
One of its authors, Michal Oracz, is the author of De Profundis, the only Polish game to be translated into English, while Ignacy Trzewiczek, the game's main author is well known to the readers of Polish RPG magazines, and is also the author of a published Warhammer adventure (in Polish).
But, for a much fresher feel, set the game in postapocalyptic Russia-a very underused setting, lots of atmosphere, plenty of grit, and, if you're Polish, you can do a lot of funny accents.

 Four Fat Chicks -- Dark Angel Review
The setting is postapocalyptic Seattle, and I-Corp is supposedly a new branch of Manticore, the military group that created Max and other soldiers like her.
I never watched the show, and the game doesn't explain how Max escaped her military service or why every living, breathing being within a thousand miles of her instantly recognizes her and wants her dead, period.
After a beautiful but uninformative opening cutscene, you take control of Max in the third person, and by her third step on the postapocalyptic pavement, she is being punched, kicked, dragged and thrown by droves of enemy clones.

 Bullet Points: Questions to End the World
Not only is a lot of material from the d20 Modern Roleplaying Game and the d20 Future supplement appropriate for such a campaign, but d20 Past includes a lot of ideas for civilizations that are just beginning to rebuild.
Surely a postapocalyptic society of raiders would be better at firing from horseback than people who have just jumped on horses for the first time.
Since mounted combat is fairly rare in the d20 Modern game (and perhaps even more so in d20 Future), not much effort has been invested in letting characters excel at it.

 L.Q. Jones
Closely adapted from the acclaimed novella by Harlan Ellison, this postapocalyptic fl comedy has emerged as a cult favorite since its release in 1975, when Don Johnson was a relative unknown and still years away from TV stardom on Miami Vice.
Here Johnson plays a young, libidinous loner named Vic who roams the postnuclear wasteland with his loyal dog, Blood, a remarkable hound with keen intelligence and the ability to telepathically communicate with his less-intelligent master.
While Blood must fend for himself on the unfriendly surface, Vic realizes that he's an exploited prisoner...

 Postapocalyptic Bleakness | MetaFilter
Following the postapocalyptic bleakness of the Threads posting, you may wish to watch La Jetée,, a 28-minute film told nearly entirely in stark fl-and-white photos (and, in this version, with an English narration).
This has quite a following, especially since Terry Gilliam's eerily similar 12 Monkeys.
If you want postapocalyptic bleakness, I highly recommend Children of Men, opening today.
