Past Anthologies

Back in 2012, right before the world was supposed end (remember that?), a group of writers over on thought we should go out with a bang. With impending doom fueling our creative muses, we put together a collection of short stories to foist upon the peoples before we all disintegrated into dust (or whatever was supposed to happen at the end of the Mayan calendar). Since we didn’t all keel over and die, each year after, we kept doing it. Check ’em out and enjoy.


THE END – Visions of Apocalypse

Everyone knows the world is going to end on December 21st, 2012. The Mayans knew it – their calendar proved it. So what better way to go out than by reading this short story collection about The End? …apart from telling your friends about it in 2013, of course.

This compilation brings together short stories by award-winning science fiction and fantasy authors Hugh Howey, Michael J. Sullivan and Tristis Ward, with fresh, new voices selected by their peers at – all brought to you in this first-of-its-kind anthology.

Each story explores a different end of the world. What is the limit of a computer virus? Can we save the world by stopping time itself, or will we just wither away in the relentless winds of the apocalypse?

Grab your copy now before the end of the world, and find out.

Contributors include: Michael Aaron, Liam Baldwin, R. F. Dickson, Wilson Geiger, Norman Gray, Hugh Howey, Stephen “B5” Jones, G. L. Lathian, Igor Ljubuncic, Pete McLean, Michael J. Sullivan, and Tristis Ward
