Publisher's Summary

Famine. Death. War. Pestilence. These are the harbingers of the biblical apocalypse, of the end of the world. In science fiction the end is triggered by less figurative means: nuclear holocaust, biological warfare/pandemic, ecological disaster, or cosmological cataclysm.
But before any catastrophe, there are people who see it coming. In the midst there are heroes who fight against it. And after there are the survivors who persevere and try to rebuild.
The Apocalypse Triptych tells their stories.
Edited by acclaimed anthologist John Joseph Adams and best-selling author Hugh Howey, The Apocalypse Triptych is a series of three anthologies of apocalyptic fiction. The End Is Nigh focuses on life before the apocalypse. The End Is Now turns its attention to life during the apocalypse. And The End Has Come focuses on life after the apocalypse.
The End Has Come features all-new, never-before-published works by Hugh Howey, Seanan McGuire, Ken Liu, Carrie Vaughn, Mira Grant, Jamie Ford, Tananarive Due, Jonathan Maberry, Robin Wasserman, Nancy Kress, Charlie Jane Anders, Elizabeth Bear, Ben H. Winters, Scott Sigler, and many others.
The end is nigh is about the match.
The end is now is about the conflagration.
The end has come is about what will rise from the ashes.

Weakest of the triptych

While still entertaining, I consider this to be the weakest in the series. One thing it does properly is concluding many stories that started from part one (The End is Nigh). Whether the ending is satisfactory is a different matter. Some new stories (the Disneyland one stands out here) are really beautifully written. But unfortunately, this volume is a continuation and conclusion of the triptych, and cannot stand on its own.

Some really great stories that draw you in...best is to start from book one and listen all the way through!

Disapointing!

As a great fan of the first two volumes i have really disappointed with book 3. In the first two volumes there were occasionally stories i disliked, some that were good if not entirely convincing but many that were absolutely mesmerising. Unfortunately in volume 3 these proportions have been reversed and i was left utterly disappointed.
Some of the stories were so fanciful they had no chance of working. Sorry but its a big thumbs down from me.

A fitting end to the series.

This audio book was a great treat, many of my favourite authors and narrators in one place.

The quality of the stories, has continued to be high throughout all three books. This third installment has not disappointed.

So many of the stories where quite thought-provoking, this book required a leisurely second listen.
