Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love anthologies because usually I'm sure to love one or two stories and like most of the rest. However only one story, "A Watery Silence" from editor Mosiman, stood out for me. "The Last Battle" had potential but didn't have a resolution and "Mrs. Lurie and the Rapture" contained a lot of unnecessary stuff. The surprise ending for "With the Sword He Must Be Slain" was nice but frankly the story didn't grab me, maybe I'm not cut out for military fiction. For a book of stories about the end of the world I expected to be thrilled and maybe scared; I didn't feel either of those.

Generally, a good collection, but there are three stories that don't go anywhere at all. The stories didn't grab my attention in the first few pages, so all hope was gone. However, the other stories--"A Watery Silence", "Mrs. Lurie and the Rapture", "The Call", especially--were good writing.

I thought the collection of stories were a little uneven here. One of them had a zombie slowly deteriorating and was pointless. It was one of those stories that must have paid the bills for the writer. Other than that it there were half good and half bad. It was still worth the price of the book. The better tales like the one where the soldiers are wondering about their final days on earth were more realistic than usual.
