Procedurals in that era? You know it: postacopalit.

Another great one is "Earth Abides" by George R. Stewart, or at least, it was when I was 10. I just began to re-read recently, and so far, it's holding up very well. I hated "The Road", reading it felt like being lashed in the eyes. I don't think I'd risk reading anything else he wrote after that.

David R.Palmer's 1983 novel, Emergence is a good book on the subject. Now we need a word for publishers who promise new books by Palmer for YEARS -- & go out of business without giving us what we crave!

Let's not forget "A Canticle for Leibowitz" by Walter M. Miller, Jr.

(My copy of "Alas, Babylon" cost $0.60, just to give you an idea of how long ago I bought it.)
