Prepping/survival in literature

I’m curious….how many of you have read Pat Frank’s novel “Alas Babylon”? It was my introduction to prepping when it was called “Civil Defense”. Did you know it was actually a tv show in the 60s? Playhouse 90 did a LIVE 90 minute play based on the book with some big name stars, including a very young Burt Reynolds. It was live so few video copies survive today. UCLA film preservation has the only known copy. I must have been about 12 when I read this book the first time.

      Over in the discussion of the Best survival and prepper books article, a few community members have said what a classic Alas, Babylon is. I guess I better read it now!

      Thanks for the additional recommendation 🙂
