    One thought on “The End: Visions of Apocalypse (SFFWorld.com anthology, #1)

    1. This was a free ebook collection of short stories that I found on by accident, but ended up really liking I ve always enjoyed end of the world scenarios and this had all sorts of possible ways the apocalypse might go After about the first 4 I had to stop reading them at night as they were giving me nightmares, but came back to it on a rainy weekend and am glad I kept going Like many other reviewers, I gave up on the last story because it s written in graphic novel format but without drawings, an [...]

    2. Mostly good stories Well told Simple premise how might the end occur and or what will it be like Better than average anthology.A good read

    3. I m reviewing this as a personal favour for one of my favourite blogging buddies, Nila E White who is part of the SFFworld forum Thanks guys for the review copy This is the sort of production that is really going to take off with the advent of digital publishing Previously confined to small circulations in a fairly limited geographical radius, productions such as this anthology should go from strength to strength in the coming years and about time So what about this, the first volume from SFFWor [...]

    4. I picked this up because one of my favorite authors, Michael J Sullivan, made a post about it and that he had a short story in it.Each story was a world in itself, and gave me enough of a glimpse into these writer s styles that I bought books from all of them for my kindle shortly after finishing.I can not recommend this enough if you love that little bit of exposition to a world that every story has, and being OK with having an entire story wrap itself up in a few minutes Great book.

    5. I m a contributor to this anthology and I also read all the stories in it A very impressive line up These are mainly new authors who have been selected by N.E White as part of a contest she runs on SFFWorld In addition to the new authors are anchor authors including myself, Hugh Howey, and Tristis Ward I won t give it a ranking, as I m a contributor but I do recommend it.

    6. Apologies to the authors of the last few stories, but it got so depressing that I had to put the book down after reading only the first eight.Apparently I can stomach the world s destruction no than eight times in one sitting.I will definitely return to this anthology another day, since what I did read was really good.To sum up my praise for the writers good work, here s a quote from another tale of a destroyed Earth So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    7. I came across this collection when I was searching for Hugh Howey after seeing Wool reviewed by the ABC Book Club Howey has a short story in this collection, and the collection was free That was a good start.A collection of short stories about the apocalypse All very original, with a wide range of ideas The end of the world by lack of bacteria, by devils, by saboteurs, by climate change cold, not hot , as well as stories of the few survivors left It s not a depressing anthology indeed there s so [...]

    8. This is a really good collection of short stories.All except for the last one, which I can t comment on because the author had the bright idea of putting the text in several squares on each page, requiring very small typeface and rendering it unreadable on a Kindle And the editor saw fit to publish it that way, calling it unique Aside from that, I was very pleased with the quality of the stories, and even pleased with how well written they were I ve read several indie ebooks lately and some of [...]

    9. This was a fun book Full of unique ideas about how the world could end A few of the stories aren t as strong as the others, but the good ones than make up for the weaker A few of my favorite out of the 12 stories Let s See What Tomorrow Brings by Igor Ljubuncic very honest, human action reaction Julia s Garden by Michael Aaron excellent reason to lead an apocalypse Burning Alexandria by Michael J Sullivan one reason I liked this is due to the fact that I could be the main character Sacrifice by [...]

    10. As this is an anthology, I ll review each one as I read it.25 2 Executable I m not quite sure of what the apocalypse of this story was, not sure exactly how the machines took over and what they did to the world How did they effect non mechanical things like gavels I understand why there might not be any new ones being made, but what happened to all the gavels made prior to the apocalypse Did the machines break them all That seems unlikely The author did a good job of teasing us with the story, w [...]

    11. reviewstaphorosis 2.5 starsA collection of stories about the end of the world, in one form or another.The anthology was built from an online discussion group contest, and unfortunately, it has that feel There are some decent stories in here, but not really anything that stands out, including from the better known authors Several of the stories are really just scenes or vignettes, not proper stories , and some others are obvious enough that there s not much payoff in reading past the first few pa [...]

    12. I found four stories I thought were great Executable , Let s See What Tomorrow Brings , Burning Alexandria , and Silver Sky The rest are okay to pretty good, with a couple of original ideas included This is my opinion, of course I believe most folks would find enough they like in this book to make the purchase and reading time worthwhile.Added note I think publishing a collection from a writing forum is an excellent idea I hope there will be to come.

    13. I don t normally read short stories, but I was intrigued by the premise here Authors take on the apocalyptic end of the world Other than that, the authors were apparently free to do as they will with their stories Some are futuristic, others could take place today The quality was generally good, though as always some seemed not so hot In general, though, I enjoyed this exercise in imagination.

    14. There were some really great stories in here, and some that were just meh Hugh Howey s short had a very cool premise, but seemed too short I love his stuff and wanted Igor Ljubuncic s was great as well This one is definitely worth a read, although I probably won t come back to it too often.

    15. Out of the 12 stories in the book I liked three Executable by Hugh Howey.Julia s Garden by Michael Aaron.Relapse by Norman Gray.Had these been the only stories I would have rated the book four stars.

    16. This was a quick read I took a gamble over and I must admit I was greatly surprised The stories are an interesting mix of styles and ideas which gave a thoroughly enjoyable read It s not particularly long which I think added to the effectiveness of each story.

    17. I love post apocalyptic stories and this is a collection of the cream of the crop Every one of them is totally worthy Great, great job

    18. In this anthology which consists of twelve tales of the world ending you can find apocalypse scenarios of various type Computer viruses run amok, unknown menaces from space taking out the planet, or the ever popular infection of the human race The stories are all fairly short which makes for a relatively quick and enjoyable read While all of the stories were well written, even if you had no idea of how the end came about, there were four that made me like this than I might have otherwise.The mo [...]

    19. I enjoyed most of the stories in this collection although one or two felt slightly out of place in this anthology due to excessive language or erotic elements Nothing wrong with either of those things, but as there were only one or two stories in the collection with those elements, they felt slightly off kilter I felt that the science behind some of the ideas was a little weak, or poorly researched The collection as a whole made up for that though, with some very believable and plausible stories [...]

    20. Most of these stories were really good I was surprised that I felt like Hugh Howey s contribution was one of the weaker ones I ve really liked pretty much everything else he s published I guess maybe I know just enough about computers and networks and I dislike technology cautionary tales enough that I wasn t really destined to like it, no matter how well written it was I liked the premise of Relapse best thought it was an interesting what if Empty Nest was silly, but short and sweet.

    21. Decent storiesI would have to say Relapse was my favorite story of the bunch Granted it follows like ground hog day but with a nice twist and it is a short story so nice and to the point Mother and child was my second favorite of the group This was was a surprise at the end Overall I would recommend this to friends and others Well worth the time spent on it.

    22. A nice anthology of stories.Most were good, one was excellent, a few were eh The last one was near impossible to read on the Kindle, which the editor pointed out in the preview and offered to send a.pdf But why, I ask sincerely, do you include a story that can t be read on a Kindle in a book that, as far as I can tell, is only available on the Kindle

    23. Great collection of stories, amazing the different interpretations of the end of the world The only criticism I have is the last story, which is impossible to read on my Kindle They do offer a free PDF, but who wants to go to that much trouble I read in bed, so the last story was a big disappointment and should not have been included in the ebook anthology Otherwise highly recommended.

    24. I liked the anthology for the most part I m not big on short stories but the subject The End lends it s self to short format I mean It is the end Nothing happens after It was inexpensive vacation reading I will put some of the authors on the Want to read list.

    25. I liked these stories Most short stories can be hit or miss Most of these were well written I didn t read the last story as I am not into comic books If I wanted to read a comic book, I would buy one.

    26. Wonderful, Unique StoriesEach story cery different from the others I think my favorite is Empty Nest , a with a warning we would do well to heed I will be looking for other works by these stories authors

    27. A collection of apocalyptic post apocalyptic short stories I don t usually go for this type of book but I absolutely loved it All of the stories were engaging to the point that I finished this book in one day.

    28. Ya know, for a bunch of nutjobs on a fantasy and sci fi forum, we didn t do too bad Admittedly, one of my stories was included in this anthology, and I certainly can t rate my own work But there are some real gems in this collection, and it was a great read.

    29. You know, for an anthology book about the many possible and one improbable ways that doom and gloom can hit us, this was a pretty great read My favorite was written by my favorite author Micheal J Sullivan Give this one a look see, if you can handle the many end of the world scenarios.

    30. As with any collection of stories, some were better than others As a collection, it s worth reading I read it for the Hugh Howey story, but that wasn t the best in the collection by far.
