Apocalyptic Reading, anyone?

Inspired by the previous post with a link to info about "Alas, Babylon," can anyone else name novels or stories about nuclear war/apocalypse? I'm interested in reading the ones I haven't because I have a dark, macabre, and morbid turn of mind.

Off the top of my head, I can think of (and have read):

"On The Beach" by Nevil Schute (there were also two movies made off this book)
"Farnham's Freehold" by Robert A. Heinlein (I wonder why there were no movies made off *this* book? *cough*)
"The Postman" by David Brin (one not-so-hot Kevin Costner movie made off this one... the book was better, gang)

Meh! That's all I've got off the top of my head. Any more?
