I think that Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic fiction may be my favorite genre.

Not sure what that says about me. Loving Oryx and Crake.
Loved the Road. Loved This is the Way the World Ends. Loved the movie Last Night. Can't get enough.

I'm dreaming of an improv show called Visions from the End of the World or something... probably too close to Eris in tone, though, so I'll put it on the backburner for now.

I'm not talking about zombie/mutant/alien/prophetic violent destruction. I'm talking about the stillness that comes after. the world ending with a wimper.

Dystopias are my favorite also - there's something about the bleakness that fascinates me.

Yes! Dysopian fiction is doubleplusgood. I've recently been pondering a Margaret Atwood interview in which she mentioned creating an environmentalism based religion. I'm adding Oryx and Crake & The Year of the Flood to my read-ASAP list.

Have you read Cloud Atlas?

Also, it is the best genre, no doubt.
