What is Apocalyptic fiction? this is quite a misunderstood sub genre that even Google gets wrong at times.
Unlike Post-Apocalyptic sci-fi where it follows after a disaster. Apocalyptic is set just before or during a potential threat- such as an impact event or nuclear warfare where the fate of humanity is uncertain. To be honest its very similar to disaster movies, where the main difference is apocalyptic is based around people who don't have a solution to the problem, while disaster actually focuses on attempts to avert or escape the problem.
