Survivors of a global catastrophe travel into the past for supplies and more in After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall by Nancy Kress.   Mysterious aliens, unsolved kidnappings and a one very determined detective inhabit this genre-bending story that will appeal to fans of The Hunger Games.

Dystopian future fans will also enjoy Wool by Hugh Howey.   In this one, survivors of a natural disaster inhabit underground silos and adhere to a very strict caste system that ensures they can never learn the truth about their circumstances.

Seize the day -- the future sounds bleak!
