Default Any Fans of Post Apocalypse Novels?

Huge fan of this genre. I've read:

The Stand - Super Flu
Swan Song - Nuclear War
Dark Advent - Virus
The Road - ????
A Canticle for Leibowitz - Nuclear War
On the Beach - Nuclear War
The Wool/Shift/Dust series - Nuclear War
Earth Abides - Disease
One Second After - EMT
I Am Legend - Virus
World War Z - Virus
Lucifer's Hammer - Comet
The Forge of God - Alien Invasion
Footfall - *currently reading*

My disaster preparedness (I live in an earthquake zone) supplies have doubled as of late!

Most of the books I've read have been pre-apocalyptic.

Not so much post-apocalypse, but dystopia is a genre I've been getting into lately.

I liked "The Passage" and "The Twelve" by Justin Cronin.

I have to admit I found Blindness so disturbing that I couldn't finish it.

And am currently well into One Second After. This one is really spooky since a lot of experts think that it's not a matter of if it will really happen, but that it's when it will happen.

Quick question, what is the normal scenario in these books that sets up an apocalyptic scenario. Is it World War and natural disasters etc or something more creative?
