Overall this was an enjoyable and well-written collection of diverse takes on the alleged end of civilization scheduled for 12/21/12. There were 2 stories in this collection that I did not find at all interesting or entertaining, but the others more than made up for them. Each story presents its author's imagined possible scenario for that day, and some of them are really quite brilliant. Initially I was a bit disappointed, because I didn't read the synopsis carefully enough to realize it was an anthology, so I was expecting a full-blown novel. However, after getting to roughly the third story, I realized I was enjoying the book. A few of these shorts provide good starting points for the authors to develop into novels, and I hope one or two of them do... or three or four of them! All things considered, this is a book I have no problem recommending to others. If you are a fan of the whole "Mayan Apocalpyse" sub-genre, by all means add this to your to-be-read list. But do it before December 21, or you may not get a chance!

I enjoy stories of the apocalypse. The year 2012 is the supposed end of the Mayan long calendar. These stories are visions of dystopian ends to humanity. They are all entertaining, some are very witty. It is a nice light read. If you want to be entertained and enjoy end of the world scenarios, this is a fine choice.

The stories in this collection were excellent! The more you know about Mayan mythology the more you will appreciate the accuracy of the details in these stories. Worth reading more than once!

This book was very different to what I was expecting. It was well written. The short stories written by the authors left a lot of food for thought.

This book has a great compilation of stories... it really gives you goose bumps to think what could happen in a date that is approaching alarmingly fast.

What will happen when the Mayan calendar ends? Who knows but while we are all waiting to find out these stories will give you something to think about, with Mayan Gods, alternate realities and all kinds of original ways that the end may come. Highly recommended
