How To: Murder

We’ve said before that you aren’t going to be able to spend the whole apocalypse hiding away in a basement. You’re going to need to get out there, seize the wastes with both grimy hands. Scavenge strange new foods, barricade a whole new part of town. But there are going to be people out there who want to stop you from doing that. They want to hurt you. So you are going to have to...

Cannibal Ettiquette

Being A Polite Person When Eating A Person. Does being a cannibal have to mean rudeness? At some point in your post-apocalyptic future, you may be required to resort to cannabalism. Please be aware, there is no shame in this choice. You did what you had to do to ensure the survival of yourself and your community. You are still a good person, even if you’re a cannibal. Let go of the guilt. It’ll probably... Read more

Review: A Departure by Tom Ward

A Departure by Tom Ward is a post-apocalyptic coming of age story. In a heartbeat Michael’s life is good. He’s in love and about to leave home for university. Things couldn’t be better. Then a natural disaster hits Britain. With his family and friends dead, and no help forthcoming from the government, Michael sets off, alone, aiming to reach the potential safety of the continent. Along the way, he forges a new family amongst the... Read more

I want HEAP (a post-apocalyptic battle card game)

One of my favorite things about apocalyptic shows and movies and the no-holds-barred “design” on everything from the outfits to the vehicles. Well, Card games are an acquired taste for a past time. But maybe this one should be given a chance. This one has crazy vehicles and goblins! It’s like Halo meets Mad Max. Check it out. Each player plays a gang of crazed goblins that have traveled across the post-apocalyptic wasteland in broken-down vehicles to... Read more

Tower Defense, The Apocalypse, and YOU!

Tower defense games are games in which you have a limited amount or resources available to build towers to defend your safe space from waves of enemies. Each wave defeated gives way to a stronger wave and loot you can use to build more or upgrade existing towers. [Like real life, except with do-overs!] I like to say things like, “I’m not obsessed with [thing I spend time that should be allotted to other things... Read more

Review: After the Ending by Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue

After the Ending by Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue is the first in The Ending Series. A post-apocalyptic book focusing on two women. The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us. When people started getting sick, “they” thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family…they’re all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them, but I... Read more

But what will I drink in the post-apocalypse?

Apologies again for falling off the planet these past couple weeks. Things have been happening that have affected my ability to write (well, more like my ability to stay awake long enough to write). I’ll probably tell y’all about it someday. Maybe. Anyway. Back to the apocalypse. I’m convinced we’re going to put ourselves in some sort of apocalyptic situation sooner rather than later (I’m rather fond of the we’ll-blow-ourselves-up theory), so I’m starting to... Read more

The girls guide to post-apocalyptic dictatorship.

In the past, I have made a big deal about how in the post apocalypse, I WILL be a benevolent dictator in control of a large, well run compound. Some of you seem to seem to think I might be joking about this. Oh, no, sugarbuns. I fully intend to be a dictator. I’m already spoiled, petty and quick to anger – dictatorship should be a cinch. I can’t tell you HOW to build your... Read more

The Year of the Women of Armageddon [REVIEW]

Thanks to Tavia and the guys at ICoS for having me give my two penny’s worth on the Women of Armageddon 2013 calendar. I have been known to cast an appreciative eye over the female form in my time, so 12 months’ worth of post-apocalyptic ladies sounds right up my street. Does the calendar cut the mustard? The Women of Armageddon calendar looks pretty damn good. The images are high quality and show a decent... Read more

REVIEW: Wool by Hugh Howey

Wool by Hugh Howey is set in a post-apocalyptic world where people live in vast, underground silos. In a ruined and hostile landscape, in a future few have been unlucky enough to survive, a community exists in a giant underground silo.  Inside, men and women live an enclosed life full of rules and regulations, of secrets and lies.  To live, you must follow the rules. But some don’t. These are the dangerous ones; these are... Read more

Kill ’em With Kindness

Sometimes my fellow, future post-apocalyptic queens and I like to daydream together about what our ideal post-apocalyptic world will be like. We plan to run the post-apocalyptic world not through strong-arming communities out of their supplies but through kindness. This world often involves copious amounts of  moisturizer, rum, and POWER. Some people will argue that kindness doesn’t go hand in hand with drunken, supple-skinned overlords. I beg to differ. It’s not just you, I also doubt I could beat... Read more
