The Problem With Post-Apocalyptic Fiction

Beside the fact that just about everyone has to die first, is that it all looks pretty much the same. Everything is "Diesel and Dust" as Midnight Oil might have said and Mad Max just never did it for me, even before he came out of the closet as a hater of the Joooooos.

Mad Max pretty much set the tone. How many other unique visions of the post apocalypse are out there? Theodore Judson's books, though both are cut from the same classical historian cloth, are nicely done.

Are there any others out there that break the Road Warrior mold?
