I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but in my opinion, horror anthologies are the bees knees! No matter where you are, no matter how much time you have, you can pick one of these bad boys up and just start reading. This is especially the case with this ‘End of the World’ anthology. Over the past week I have dipped in and out of this book during my hectic life (concluding with my little trip to jail – ouch!) and each time I did I was more and more impressed.
There are twelve stories in total (thirteen if you include the foreword) and all at varying lengths. There’s no way I’d be able to pick my favourite as all tend to instill a fear of what the end of the world will bring. Authors include: Hydra M. Star (who also edited the book), Andrea Dean van Scoyoc, Garth von Buchholz, Joseph DeRepentigny, Josephine Seven, Ken Knight, Larry Lefkowitz, Magan Rodriguez, Tibbie X and W. Freedreamer Tinkanesh. All of these authors were new to me (but may not be to others) and I can honestly say I was impressed with each and every one. Each brings a unique element to the book so it doesn’t just feel like the same armageddon ploy on each page. There’s differing dynamics, pace and plot which makes the book an entertaining read.
This book has everything from zombies to greek mythology, mind-numbing horror to sheer comedy. What else could you ask for?
