Being an avid fan of science fiction I have always been drawn to tales of survival on an apocalyptic scale. Such events grab the human spirit and bring out the best as well as the worst in us. I love books that beg the reader to ask themselves "What would I do?"
and challenge their own morals and integrity.
Authors and books that influenced me most were Robert McCammon's "Swan Song" and Stephen King's "The Stand". They are both gripping tales of survival with moral implications that grabs the reader.
