The end of the world might come in many forms: ecological disaster, alien invasion, cosmic chaos...the possibilities for destruction seem endless. So, how will those facing the end of the world deal with impending doom? The fourteen talented authors of Fiction River's latest volume explore just that. From an intrepid adventurer fleeing a world-destroying terror to a man who discovers the most savage destroyers of civilization are closer than he thought, to a chilling tale of our whole planet hurled into the icy black reaches of space, these gripping stories demonstrate why Astro Guyz calls Fiction River a wonderful, mind-expanding read. These enjoyable twisting short stories seem more like a stop in the Twilight Zone than pulp fiction. -Midwest Book Review on Fiction River: Recycled Pulp Table of Contents String of Pearls by Eric Kent Edstrom The Shoes I Wore This Morning by J.
