Have you ever noticed some of the more interesting things that many survival fiction novels have in common?  If not, here’s a list to get you started.

  • One of your immediate neighbors will usually turn out to be the bad guy who somehow raises an army of thugs intent on threatening your existence.
  • Your neighborhood always has a retired gunnery sergeant who immediately implements state of the art security protocols for your group.
  • One of your neighbors always has an unlimited metal supply such as steel or copper, etc., is a welder and also has better weaponry than most soldiers actually use.
  • The main character can be outnumbered and outgunned and even surrounded but will still manage to escape while killing a large percentage of the enemy force.
  • While trying to survive in the most dire circumstances the main character still has time to have sex with his wife frequently.
  • Everyone becomes an instant expert on everything.
  • Someone in the group always has enough food stockpiled to feed the entire neighborhood for at least two years.

  1. I’ll be reviewing yours now for points such as these, just in case I’ve missed something lol 😉 I thought it was the norm for the main character to have the privilege of having sex frequently lol with any female – usually several lol that he fancied given his assumed role as hero and slayer of all that is bad and fearsome in what passes nonchalantly as the present! 😀
