Endless Apocalypse Short Stories (Gothic Fantasy) Kindle Edition
New Authors and collections. Stories of the end of civilized life have always fascinated us, from the mythological world endings, Armageddon to Ragnorok, to the flood stories of across the Ancient world. They make us wonder what we would do if all around us came to an end: no transport, no fuel, no communications: a retreat into the desperation, the onslaught of disease, how would we survive? This is the source of zombie literature and provides the inspiration for this fabulous mix of horror and adventure, of classic and brand new writing in the successful series of Gothic Fantasy titles from Flame Tree. Classic authors include Stephen Vincent Benét, J.D. Beresford, Lord Byron, Arthur Conan Doyle, George Allan England, William Hope Hodgson, H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, M.P. Shiel, Snorri Sturluson, Jules Verne, H.G. Wells; along with a retelling of the Ancient Sumerian and Babylonian Myth of Apocalypse.

Great CollectionReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on 14 October 2020
A great collection. Contemporary authors as well as stories written by classic authors. It was fascinating seeing how the times in which these authors lived affected their views of the apocalypse. I am anxious to read other titles in the Gothic Fantasy series.
