There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
While all the entries stand firm on their own merits, three in particular have some resonance for me: "Black Market Magic" by Hildy Silverman, "Norman's Ark" by Roy A. Mauritsen, and "Hollow (Be Careful What You Wish For)" by Matt Schiariti all contain ordinary characters that are very identifiable, which makes it all the more easy to get absorbed into the bizarre situations they find themselves confronting. But for their supernatural surroundings, they could very well be real people.
With strong storytelling and a broad genre appeal, APOCALYPSE 13 has something to please just about everyone. Highly recommended to any and all fans!

Unfortunately Apocalypse 13 is more miss than hit, and certainly isn't worth the price tag it's commanding right now.
One highlight is probably "Ragnarok and Roll" - it clearly feels like a 'pilot' to start with more stories. DeCandido's expertise shines through and it's entertaining, witty and channels the likes of Buffy very well.
One issue is that most of the stories feel like pilots... my favourite story is "Hollow" - and it takes its short format story seriously. Like a good Outer Limits episode it maximises its format in that it can do whatever it wants as the story won't be continued. It's short, but very sweet.
Unfortunately many of the stories feel like they suffer from a Mary Sue feeling, and some are interesting but some are lacking.
Worth a skim ream finding the stories you like if the price comes down.
