Default Re: post-apocalyptic fiction?

I recently read World War Z and the Zombie Survival Guide, and they're both very good. And Hitchiker's Guide is one of my favorite books ever. I highly recommend all of these (I know they've been mentioned, but I wanted to lend my support). However, none of them really focus on post-apocalyptic life on earth. If you're looking for that kind of thing, you might consider Orson Scott Card's Folk of the Fringe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Folk_of_the_Fringe). Unlike many of the other books mentioned, it's a relatively realistic account of what might happen after an apocalypse that's actually possible (zombies and aliens are fun, but rather unlikely). I remember enjoying it and thinking it was a really interesting take on the future (caveat: I read it years ago, when I was much younger and more foolish, so it's possible I liked it more than it deserved). It's not a book you hear about very often, so I thought I should bring it up.
