    The writers were asked to write stories with an apocalyptic theme Traditional stories of zombies, wastelands, and viral pandemics were welcomed, but warned that originality was what After the Fall Tales of the Apocalypse most wanted I was one of the entries in the contest, and lucky enough to be accepted I was very curious about what other types of stories I would be featured alongside my own and what the end result would be like.And by my rating above, you can see what I thought of it.Th The writers were asked to write stories with an apocalyptic theme Traditional stories of zombies, wastelands, and viral pandemics were welcomed, but warned that originality was what After the Fall Tales of the Apocalypse most wanted I was one of the entries in the contest, and lucky enough to be accepted I was very curious about what other types of stories I would be featured alongside my own and what the end result would be like.And by my rating abo...

    Apocalyptic fiction is perhaps the growth subgenre of the last few years I have spoken in some of my blog posts about the correlation between the economic downturn and end of the world fiction We are fascinated by how it might imminently come about and there is not a science fiction writer who has not presented their own vision of the apocalypse This volume of short stories is a publication by Almond Press and in the collection are the 20 short listed stories for a recent competition, and of Apocalyptic fiction is perhaps the growth subgenre of the last few years I have spoken in some of my blog posts about the correlation between the economic downturn and end of the world fiction We are fascinated by how...

    This is a mixed bag There are some good writers here, some good ideas, and some writers and ideas with potential It s not well edited, though, either in terms of selection or corrections The first story, Casting Off by Robert Holtom, which is the one which won the competition which resulted in this anthology, is atmospheric and beautifully descriptive Sale of the Century and The Comeback Tour use humour well, but naturally, given the linking theme, most of the stories are dark and or frighte This is a mixed bag There are some good writers here, some good ideas, and some writers and ideas with potential It s not well edited, though, either in terms of selection or corrections The first story, Casting Off by Robert Holtom, which is the one wh...

    I really wanted to like this book I wasn t sure how many stars to give this because I liked some parts of some of the stories and not others.The stories were generally well written and quite atmospheric with lots of description of the post apocalyptic scenery but that was about it The plots didn t go anywhere and many left me frustrated, disappointed and sometimes just plain confused As a previous reviewer says, the publishing errors don t help, for instance the first paragraph of Diary of a I really wanted to like this book I wasn t sure how many stars to give this because I li...
