Books you read while playing? Swan Song

Post by Saxon1974 » August 23rd, 2017, 3:37 pm

I tend to like to read novels in the same setting I am gaming in. I was reading the deathlands series and decided to take a break and try Brian Fargo's favorite post apocalyptic novel "Swan Song". It's quite good to be honest. Anyone else reading anything similar to the game's genre?

Swan Song is excellent.

'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy is also excellent

'One Second After' is also extremely good.

Haven't read either one of those but they are on my list. It's hard to find any books in a post apocalyptic setting that have supernatural stuff like mutants, some magic etc....so far Swan Song doesn't really have much of that (there is supernatural devil creature).

The Deathlands series is the closest I found that mirrors the wasteland/fallout setting and I have read the first 7 or so in the long series (there are more then 30 books I believe).

They are both realistic, no supernatural elements. I'm sure you've read 'The Stand'?

I have not but I have heard it compared to Swan Song. Which do you prefer?

Hmmm, both are really good, if you haven't read 'The Stand' you really need to grab a copy ASAP.
