I normally dislike post-apocalyptic tales. To my mind, zombies are over-done and the next viral outbreak is just one movie away. Yet, after reading Spring Fevers, I had to read the second book in the seasonal anthology collection by Elephant's Bookshelf Press.

The Fall: Tales from the Apocalypse is so much more than zombies and killer viruses. It's an eclectic collection of unique end-of-the-world scenarios for both young adults and adults to enjoy.

Sure there are zombies, but these zombies are different. Not to mention there's war, human sacrifice, betrayal, love, natural disaster and hope. Did I mention human and divine follies? Yet underneath the need to survive, is the satisfying current of human relations.

Some stories will make you cry, others will tickle your funny bone. And at least one will chill you to the very core.

If you're at all curious about how the world will end, The Fall is the perfect collection to cuddle up with in front of the fire place. Just don't forget to lock your doors before reading!

THE RUNDOWN
Tales about the end of civilization as we know it have captivated audiences for generations. It is no wonder that The Fall: Tales from the Apocalypse would be just as intriguing. This group of stories all tied to the common theme of man's destruction gives the reader much to think about. Below are the tales and a brief summary of plot.

Trust by R.C. Lewis - A family struggles to stay alive after the collapse of government.

Hairline Cracks by Ryan Graudin - Zombies tear apart a relationship. "Lumberjack zombie becomes his own Fruit Gusher. Though his flavor is probably more Triple Berry Shock than anything else..."

The Last Day of the Fall by Matt Sinclair - A hodge-podge group struggles to make it through the winter.

Disconnect by Mindy McGinnis - A humorous meeting between God and Angels two seconds after the apocalypse. "GOD: How am I supposed to deliver The Judgment without The iPhone?"

WWBBCDITZA by A.M. Supinger - What Would Big Black Cat Do In The Zombie Apocalypse?

Solar Flare by Alexandra Tys O'Connor - A teen, trained by his survivalist mom, faces off against a corrupt coach after the apocalypse.

Emanate by Amy Trueblood - A brother must protect his sister from both the aliens and the people who want to use her life energy. "I would do anything to keep my sister from their grasp, even if it meant being buried alive for ten hours every night."

Little League by Cat Woods - A baseball game between the Devils and the Saints has some very high stakes.

Rebirth by A.M. Supinger - A selkie, half seal half human, finds a way to truly become human, but at great cost.

Crumbs by Jean Oram - A photojournalist uses her camera to keep an eye on a survivor who she fancies.

THE FALL is a wonderfully eclectic mix of stories that reminded me of my lost love for the art that is short story writing (and twist endings!). I was grabbed right away, and loved the twist at the end of the very first story!

I also loved that the particular culprit behind the doomsday in each story varies so much; the government, war, an absentminded God, technology run amok....and even ZOMBIES!!! Awesome!

But what I enjoyed the most was that some of the stories pull at your heart strings, some make you laugh, some make you cringe, and still others have you hanging on the edge of your seat (quite impressive considering each story only has a dozen or so pages to accomplish that!)

Just a great, great read!

Review of The Fall: Tales from the Apocalypse
Edited by Matt Sinclair
5 stars

I was relieved while reading this to be reminded that "Apocalypse" as a term, is not inclusive only of Zombiefication, plague, and mutant virus. No, indeed: there are other means of reaching The End of The World, or alternatively The End of Civilization As We Know It. Plenty of those possibilities are delectably presented here. I myself am quite fond of the first story, "Trust," whose complete irony simply turns me inside out, and has cemented its niche in my "reader's mind." Every reader will find something to apocaplytically dwell on in this anthology.

I reviewed an e-book copy provided for my fair and impartial review.

Okay, maybe contemplating the end of the world, or at least civilization as we know it, isn't eveyone's idea of fun, but this reader had a great time, beginning to end, with The Fall: Tales from the Apocalypse. I mean, 12/21/12 is right around the corner, so why not pour a festive drink, sit back, and enjoy the show?

Several talented authors spin their visions of apocalypse, from horrifying to humorous, from meso-America to a little league field in the northern plains, from deserts to cities to heaven itself (where the cast isn't quite what was taught in Sunday school.) Readers will encounter the expected zombies, of course, and viral pandemics, but the variety is never dull and goes well beyond the standard tropes. These tales offer chills, tears, despair, and hope. And humor. Yep, even the end can be a laugh. But not always.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read and look forward to the next seasonal collection from this press. Stories of summer. If we survive until then.
