May I suggest "Tails of the Apocalypse" as edited by Chris Porteau?
This is a magnificent volume. There is a specialness here that one does not often encounter, in both the stories and the tome's formatting. A synpopsis of each story opens the book. I defy anyone to read the explanatory paragraph, for example, to "When You Open The Cages for Those Who Can't" by Edward W. Robertson, without being moved to read it. Or, "Demon and Emily," by Daniel Adams. Thing is, in this extensive collection of short stories, each is of equal quality. Most importantly, each has something to "say" about the state of the world, as seen through unique perspectives.
Publisher Todd Barselow's Auspicious Apparatus Press should be lauded for presenting something different, and flat-out good. A commendable effort all around.
Each story is astounding in its own way but my personal favorites include "The Water Finder's Shadow" by David Bruns, "The Bear's Child" By Harlow C. Fallon, "Unconditional" by Chris Pourteau and, since I am an incurable cat person, "The Poetry of Santiago" by Jennifer Ellis. This one was particularly poignant to me, not only for its superb telling of an elderly feline desperately trying to save his equally aged human friend from the impending volcanic disaster, but also because I happened to be reading it while on a Mediterranean cruise, sailing past Etna, Stromboli and Vesuvius at the time.
This is a gem of a collection, heart-rending at times but also full of hope. If the Apocalypse does find us, it will be the treasured animal companions that survive with us that will hopefully make life bearable and perhaps even worth living in the aftermath.
Normally I do not reach for dysoptian type books to read, but this collection of short stores was referred to me by a good freind, He knows how much of a anmial lover I am, and wuld probably enjoy this collection. He was spot on.
The great idea bout a collection of short stories by people you have not yet become familiar with is that you have a smorgasbord of short books at your fingertips. This is a fantastic way to experience new authors without investing days of reading a book, you might not appreciate. While not a reader of this genre, I have found several authors in Tails of the Apocalypse that I will be adding to my library.
This is really an amazing set of stories from a common theme ( dystopian, end of the world etc), but told from a angle that is refreshing and absolutely brilliant. This is a must read book!!
Why do I say this is a must read book? Well, a good writer will hold your attention for a while and time will slip by... A great writer will also have you experience strong emotions while reading their books. To be able to move me to tears, or make me laugh out loud, cheer on the hero like I would a favorite sportsman is a mark of exceptional writing... To do it in a short story is bloody brilliant. An exceptional collection of books, now one lost my attention, but several took my experience to the next levels. My deepest and most sincere thanks to the following: Protector by Stefan Bolz, Keena's Lament by Hank Garner, Wings of Paradise by Todd Barselow.
I highly recommend reading Tails of the Apocalypse, you will not regret this collection of absolutely stunning, intense, and refreshing short stories!
