Complete Thread
I had read on some other thread a month or so ago where other BCers were reading more apocalypse and pandemic fiction despite being in the midst of a pandemic. I found myself doing so, too. So, I thought why not turn it into a bookbox!

This box can contain pretty much anything that changes Earth and/or its society in the past, present, or future in a dramatic way as long as it is NOT magic or supernatural.

Acceptable: Apocalyptic, Post Apocalyptic, Dystopian, Utopian, Alternative History/Alternative Reality (as long as not supernatural or magical realism and should make a big change/impact in history/reality), Cyberpunk, Steampunk (again, no supernatural so no vampires etc.) Futurism, Alien Invasion/Contact etc.

Not Acceptable: Supernatural, magical realism, fantasy, sci-fi with little to no connection with Earth, etc.

If at least 3 people sign up, I’d like to get it started around the end of September or some time in October. Plenty of time to read up! There should be around 19-25 books.

Bookbox rules (cobbled together from other bookboxes):

1. A postman rides out of the dust delivering the first mail people have seen in years:
Please post here when you receive the box.
2. Gems are unearthed from the travel weary box:
Journal books that you take out and put in. Also, list on this thread what you picked and what you put in the box as it is fun for everyone to see how the books in the box change as it makes its journey and for others to discover new gems to add to their wishlists!
3. The Society adheres to the tenet of equality (kinda):
Replace books with an equal amount of books that you have taken out. (There’s some flexibility here. No pressure.)
4. Rogues are accepted here:
Books do not have to be the first in a series, but before adding take into consideration how they will read as a stand-alone. If the future reader is going to be completely lost, particularly if the series isn't easily found, please consider finding it a home another way.
5. The road is long and fraught with danger:
Please pass the box on within 2 weeks. If, for some reason, you are having difficulty sending out in this time frame, send me a PM or let us know on this thread.
6. And as always, have fun and keep your weapons at hand!

I'm in!
My absolute favorite genre :)

 

GoryDetails and echode!

I left space for the 3 people that were in my last box that didn't get a turn with it. That's why they are still blank. I've PMed them and just waiting to hear back if they'd like to join or not.

zombies
I hate zombie books, and this description seems to include zombie books. I do recognize that many readers like them, and also that it is possible to handle zombies in a non-supernatural way, but it's just too cheezy for me. Approximately how many books will be in the box, so I can determine if there will be a good number of other types of book?

RE: zombies
I’m not a particular fan of zombies. But I’m not opposed to them being included in the box as long as they are science based. I’d like to stay away from fantasy or supernatural. Right now, I have 19 books (9 of which I still have to read) that will go in the box and none have zombies in them. Though I do have an anthology I haven’t read yet so not sure if there’s a zombie story there.

From now and until the box goes out I’ll keep an eye out for other books that could go in the box but I’d definitely cap it at 25. So I’ll updated the original post to 19-25 books in the box.

I’m also not opposed to limiting the number of zombie books in the box at any given time. What would be an acceptable number? No more than 3 or 5? Thoughts?

And there’s plenty of time to read up as I still have at least 9 books to read and I’m a slow reader. I’m shooting for October. And, as many of you may have noticed, the post has slowed a little. Well at least it has for me. Media mail has been taking a few extra days to get to its destination. So, plenty of time.

Please let me know if you guys are interested and if you have a preference in the participant list.

Since at least 19 of the starting books are non-zombie, I could put you first or second on the list. Just let me know! Hope you’ll join!

 

I haven’t read all my dystopian stuff yet (currently reading the Ember in Space trilogy)—is it possible to be near last or included in the next round, if there’s a round 2?

There should be plenty of time to read up. The box won’t even be traveling until October. Would you be ok with me putting you at the end of the list? Just let me know and I’ll add you in! :)

Sure that’s fine.

 

..to decide if I can play.

Could we get a ruling on zombies, please? My favorite zombies are definitely science-based, not supernatural. (Although I don’t have an extra copy at the moment.)

 

If anyone happens to fall after me in line, I'll have 5 non-zombie books (unless there's a SERIOUS plot-twist) to contribute.
For those Team Zombie, there's a fascinating 2-part crossover episode of 2 podcasts (This Podcast Will Kill You & The Biology of Superheroes) that delve into the origin story of zombies, hosted by two epidemiologists and an evolutionary biologist.

 

The chances of that number of books being predominantly zombie seems small, so there will be plenty of other selections. No need for a special rule. Sign me up wherever makes sense to you.

 

:)
Updated! Thanks for joining!

@all - The 3rd person that didn’t get a turn of the last sci fi box is unable to participate so I’ve updated the list to reflect.

 

No zombies in the books I’ll be adding, but I do have cheesy giant mutant insects ;)

 

winghyphen8wing 6 mos ago
Wow.
cheesy giant mutant insects ;)

Okay then... ;)

 

This sounds so cool! Thank you.

 

You are in!
Thanks for joining!

 

..but media mail to Hawaii is *really* slow at the moment.

If the box is not too large and I could be closer to the end than the beginning, I'll play. :)

I put you at the end of the current list. The box, currently, has 19 books but could have up to 25. When the box gets close to you on the list, just let me know if you need to be moved further down the list (assuming we have more people) or removed from the list. Hope you'll be able to play!

And don't worry about the speed of mail moving to and from Hawaii. I don't think anyone should have a problem with that and it's a bit slow all around right now.

Media mail
And don't worry about the speed of mail moving to and from Hawaii. I don't think anyone should have a problem with that and it's a bit slow all around right now.

Thank you. Fair warning: in theory “normal” media mail for Hawaii is 3 weeks - that’s the ETA on the receipt (I’m presuming transit by boat). With all the current disruptions to the mail, actual time is averaging well over a month. :(

No worries! :-D

 

I think this cheezy little gem will qualify, due to the dystopic setting of The HEROD Men. Consider Dark Planet to be a bonus...

For the most part, as long as there is some relation to Earth and is not paranormal/supernatural, then it's good to go! I'm really not strict so I leave it to each person to determine if they think it fits or even just think it somewhat fits and think someone will enjoy it. :-) As for cheesy, I think several people participating love cheesy, especially since the box will skew towards dark and depressing. Sounds fun!

You are added!

I have no problem with time travel stories. Historical fiction on it's own...if it has earth/human culture in some way different than it really was then yes, but I leave it to each person to make up their mind if it fits. I'm not a stickler, so if you feel it fits or somewhat fits then I'm good with your decision! :-)

 

I’ve still got 5-6 books to read. Most are a quick read, so an October (maybe midway) start looks to be on track.

 

I would love to join. Have not done book crossing in some time but would love to get back into it. I know not everyone allows 'newbies' to join their bookboxes so please let me know. I know I already have 1 or 2 books that will fit.
Thanks!

Question, I have the Grounded Trilogy (description of book 1 is here: https://www.amazon.com/---/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?... ).

Post Apocalyptic and the protagonist is Amish/heavily involves the Amish community. But the protagonist gains electricity as a power/ability. I assume this goes under no for superpowers? (Thinking you more want Katniss or Tris vs dystopian guinea pigs that get abilities?)

If it’s science-y in any way, I’m fine with it. Even if it’s a bit far fetched like Spider-Man getting superpowers from a radioactive spider vs a genie granting a person’s wish to fly. So, the Grounded Trilogy sounds like it’d fit.

If you feel it fits your definition of any the box’s genres, I’m on board! Mostly, I put the phrase about supernatural and such to draw a line between something like River of Teeth where hippos were introduced into Louisiana’s bayous and something like the Sookie Stackhouse books where vampires are made part of known society. I know that brings up the issue of books like The People’s History of the Vampire Uprising where it is science based how vampires came to be and it’s seen as a pandemic. So I can be convinced if you can make the argument. I’m open. :)

 

And based on something that was actually considered, which is the part that really blows my mind...

Crazy they considered it! So glad it was dismissed. A reality in Columbia with Pablo Escobar’s ‘cocaine hippos’, though them being in the wild was an accident.

 

I was able to finish reading earlier than expected so the box is now on its way to erishkigal!

No problem. Done!

 

Thanks. I enjoy the genre but am having difficulty deciding what might work for the box...and I can’t really browse at the used book store at the moment. :(

 

Thanks for thinking of me, Spatial! This is right up my alley.

I have started participating in bookboxes again, though I'm slow on turnaround. You can put me anywhere on the list.

Glad you could join!

 

I’ve had a quick glance, but haven’t really taken a deep dive in yet. Mainly because I know I’m going to have to register the books for it, and right now I am busily trying to get books registered and/or journaled for the wild things box😂
But arrived it has, safe, sound, and only slightly singed 😉
A question for you, Spatial , is there a journal in here to travel with the box, or I just do my exchanges in the forum? Thank you for hosting!

 

Singed!?! Radiation? Burning zombie bodies!? Or unforeseen complications of riding pony express-style through hostile lands?

Glad it arrived safely!

There is no journal book. If you don’t mind noting your exchanges in a post, that’d be great! 😊

 

Braving mutant creatures, blood seeking zombies, and hellfire, The Postman carries on ( How I wish I actually had a copy of Brin’s book to put in here LOL).

I have it on reliable authority (my wife) that the Bookbox of The Apocalypse has arrived safely in Beaufort SC. I am traveling at this time (Chicago IL) and was not able to observe its abrupt appearance personally. Currently it is in pandemic quarantine awaiting sterilization from a coronavirus previously unknown to science. Only a few neighbors have mentioned the unearthly green glow out the windows of my garage.

 

Well, I have returned home to find that the unearthly green glow has worn off the well-hardened box. Inside I found 20 books all in good shape, and tagged. Thanks Spatial and erishkigal! Of those 20, I have previously read 8, so 12 new books to choose from, and not a zombie among them (as far as I can tell). I am currently in the middle of a video lecture course on Great Utopian and Dystopian Works of Literature, from The Great Courses - and I found a few that I still need for the reading list. So that's exciting! If you're interested, here's the reading list: https://www.goodreads.com/---/3365258907

 

Planning to take the Bookbox of the Apocalypse over the swing bridge into Beaufort, where the post office is. This is the way.

Love it! And it’s radioactive again?! I hope your cart has some great shielding!

Stay safe and away from those pesky zombies!

This is the way.

 

Yeah, that happened after I took it out in the sunlight. Maybe it gets nourishment from solar radiation. Maybe it came from deep space, and is trapped here inside the Earth's magnetosphere, trying to get away. By the time it reaches New Hampshire it could be really hot. I hope GoryDetails has good PPE.

Hmmm. Maybe I can construct a lead poncho out of wine-bottle foil - oh wait, they don't use lead anymore...

{snerk!}

 

I concluded my post-Chicago self-quarantine with a negative covid test,
and so was able to go to the post office and send the bookbox to GoryDetails.

Oh no! Say it ain’t so! We all feel you! I’d thought about making it a shrinking book for that reason as there’ll be so many books coming back. But that thought happened after the box was already traveling. :/

I put you don’t as ‘skip’. If you change your mind, you know where to find us! Stay safe & happy reading!

in sunny San Diego! Unfortunately the box is now glowing purple with some sort of green protuberances growing from it. (maybe it is one huge coronavirus?) I have brought it inside and am trying to be brave, but it has started chasing my dogs around. Will try to vaccinate the box before sending it forward, but currently in San Diego, you have to be older than 65 to get the vaccine.

What if some parts of the box are older than 65? ‘A Canticle for Leibowitz’ is almost 65. Close enough?!?

 

I think that might do it!!

 

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
