Laverme's Handbook of Indoor Worm Composting
looks like the real thing, written after years of experience. See bio

Doomsday Diary
See its extensive list of topics. There is a lot of good content in here. The formatting style is odd, each sentence is its own paragraph, almost like a collection of proverbs, which I find a bit annoying, but am reading anyway because of the content. One subject here that I haven’t seen addressed in my 6 months on survival websites is international travel and relocation (not that it isn't there, but I haven't seen it.)

Easterchicks Gone Bad
“31 articles written by Sheri Dixon for from 2004-2009…From Homeschooling to Home birth, milking goats to hatching chickens, "Easterchicks Gone Bad" explores and celebrates a simple way of life that really isn't simple at all. The intent of each story is to be informative and perhaps even educational, but mainly to be entertaining.”

From The Back Acres, A Humorous Guide to Organic Gardening

A Fine Mess: Living Simply With Children

Amendments Without Congress: A Timely Gift From the Founders
American Politics: “written specifically for those legislators and citizens who have the guts to stand up to Washington and demand what the Constitutions calls a Convention for Proposing Amendments.”

In Gold We Trust
”This intriguing, thought provoking article exposes the very core of what caused the economic collapse to even be possible. The decline of the dollar, and over-use of government regulation.”

The Damnation of Memory
“The dual catastrophes of peak oil and a decade-long grain blight have annihilated the gas pump and breadbox of North America. The great cities of the northeast corridor have imploded, leaving only tiny rural Amish communities intact and subsisting, as they ever have, unhindered by the need for fuel or mass-produced food. The two friends have grown accustomed to the Amish ways, and earn their keep delivering mail on foot from far-flung farm communities stretched from Indiana and Illinois to Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. In the absence of people, nature has begun to retake what man has built. Cities and towns teem with wildlife and crumble year after year, and even amongst the warmth of the Amish, the two men find it difficult with each passing year to make sense of what has happened to their way of life...”

The Grid
“One morning, Emma is on her laptop when the internet suddenly dies. Then she finds the lights don't work. And then, outside her window, a plane crashes to the ground. A massive solar flare has knocked out all electricity, all over the planet. And now all of humanity finds itself on the brink of chaos. Realising that she might never see her family again, Emma sets out with her creepy neighbour Pierce on a journey across the country. “
Middling reviews.

Anomaly at Fortune Lake
“On a remote lake in Canada, Ashley and Justin seek an off-the-grid lifestyle, while two anomalies merge into one. A distant galaxy exhibits unusual characteristics in Justin's amateur telescope, and something under the lake is stirring. Soon military submarine chasers from two countries are involved, and so are astronomers from around the world. It's a race to discover the meaning of the anomalies, and Ashley takes an unexpected lead in the investigations. Can a determined woman who decides to tackle a remote region bring clarity to the events that are rapidly unfolding? And how will she survive all by herself?”

Annie Higgins
“Adult situations, violence, language. It is the year 2028. The survivors of the plague and the limited nuclear exchange of 2017 are few and scattered. This is the story of a group of these survivors who embark on a cross-country journey from Spokane, Washington to a civilized refuge in the state of Georgia. Their caravan is attacked, the men and boys are killed and the women and horses are taken. The task of rescuing the women falls on the shoulders of thirteen-year-old Annie Higgins.” From the author of Hard Roads, posted April 28, and A Tough Man, posted May 4.

The Seventh Pillar (The PROJECT)
”A fanatical terrorist believes the Islamic Messiah has commanded him to begin the Apocalypse and bring about the End of Days. A secret cult of assassins emerges from the dust of history to murder key figures in the US and British government, fanning the fires of suspicion and war”… the climax “will determine the future of Western civilization.”

The Son of Shinar (The Time of Jacob's Trouble)
Biblical end-times novel but apparently with aliens?

Anarchy Zone Time Yarns (Time Yarns Anthologies)
Collection of stories, two of which, are are set in a post-apocalyptic future (The Anarchy Zone and Host). However they look like they include weird stuff so I’ve put them at the bottom of the post.
