Post Apocalyptic fiction is set after a major catastrophic event such as a nuclear war, worldwide environmental disaster, impact event, resource depletion or other disaster that has a worldwide effect and generally brings about the end of civilization.

These stories can be set anywhere from immediately after such an event to a time when a pre-catastrophe civilization has been all but forgotten and faded to myth and legend.
