'90s Week - News on gender, culture, and politics. | Jezebel

quote [ So, while the style, music, and television formats of the 1990s were theoretically more in fashion in the early 2010s, the decade’s roots in the present have never been sharper. Jezebel began talking seriously about the 1990s last year, after seeing the way some of its most toxic traits have returned nearly intact, as if preserved in amber. ]

The 50 Greatest Apocalypse Novels

quote [ The end of the world is never really the end of the world—at least not in fiction. After all, someone must survive to tell the tale. And what tales they are. Humans have been pondering the end of existence for as long as we’ve been aware of it. ]

An older article from last year, but thought I'd share it. Two of my faves ("The Postman" and "Cloud Atlas") are on it, as well as McCammon's "Swan's Song." I always felt McCammon never got the recognition he deserved.
