The World Ends on Wednesday #3 - Prolific Authors

Apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic and dystopian books are EVERYWHERE right now.  It seems like almost every author has either toyed with the idea, or have written their own apocalyptic story - horror, young adult, contemporary fiction, historical fiction - whatever your preferred genre, the world is probably ending, rebuilding or being screwed up my a megalomaniac government.

But what about the authors who have made their whole writing career out of doomsday?  My personal favourite when it comes to natural disasters is John Christopher - 

Author of:
The Death of Grass (a virus which wipes out grass), published 1956
A Wrinkle in the Skin (earthquake), published 1965
Empty World (virus), published 1977
The World in Winter (ice-age), published 1962

I wonder if he was a cheery person? ;-)
