Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Apocalypse 2020

Apocalypse 2020

A reboot of the Apocalypse 2018 and 2019 challenges. Watch the world burn! Get your respirators on and read a pile of apocalyptic fiction!

The Rules:

  • Sci-fi, fantasy or horror, focusing on the end of the world as we know it! Best choices are in the Dying Earth & Apocalyptic/Post-Apocalyptic sub-genres.
  • Dystopias only count if they follow an apocalypse (Oryx & Crake works, but The Handmaid's Tale doesn't)
  • Video game & RPG tie-ins are ok as long as the apocalypse is the focus!
