Literature: noise
"Hiram" and "Levi" are two Texan, D&D playing, and very disaffected college students living in the small university town of Slade. Unlike most college students, however, they have a Plan - a capital P plan. See, after the switch from Analog TV to Digital TV broadcasting, the abandoned airwaves were taken over by Salvage, an anarchic collection of survivalists, radio enthusiasts, and graffitists broadcasting and repeating weak signals with cheap equipment. Through Salvage, "Hiram" and "Levi" can get the news of what's really happening in the world, and more importantly, a distorted but workable Plan to survive and thrive in the aftermath.

So with that, Hiram and Levi and more fight their way through the collapsing government, and more importantly, dozens of others with their own Plans.

This book by first-time author Darin Bradley has been described as "Lord of the Flies meets The Zombie Survival Guide (without zombies)", and that's probably a fair description. Published in August 2010.
