"Who says post-apocalyptic fiction has to be dreary? In Apocalypticon the end of the world is absolutely hilarious...Clayton Smith writes great witty dialogue, covers nearly every trope and adds quite a few imagintive twists. Reminiscent of Zombieland, this book is a hell of a lot of fun!" - Jason Weisberger, Boing Boing
"...it's what a post-apocalyptic novel would look like if written by Joss Whedon." - CCLaP
"Clayton Smith has written a wacky novel about the end of the world...[he] can definitely write. His dialogue is snappy, his powers of description are terrific, and he has plenty of imagination." - Windy City Reviews
"Equal parts Mad Max and Monty Python...one hilarious, harrowing and heart-wrenching tale." - Steven Luna, author of the Joe Vampire series
About the Author
Clayton Smith is a writer of speculative fiction living in Chicago, where he has become exceedingly good at cursing the winters. He writes novels, short stories, and plays, mostly. His work has been featured on the popular Internet site Amazon, and he has had plays produced rather mercilessly in St. Louis and New York City.
Clayton tends to inject a healthy dose of magical realism into his stories, which distresses his characters to no end. One day, they will likely rebel against him, but for now, they're all fairly busy managing various disasters, villains, and the occasional zombie apocalypse.
