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. During, there are heroes who fight against it. And after, there are the survivors who persevere and try to rebuild. "The Apocalypse Triptych" will tell 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 explores life after the apocalypse. The End Is Nigh is about the match. The End Has Come is about what will rise from the ashes. The End Is Now is about the conflagration.

Visions of sadness

There are no happy endings here. Only small victories and shattered dreams. Like its predecessor, not all stories and narrators are equal. Still worth listening to, if you like thought provoking stories.

Loses a star because the last story is That Bad.

Excellent idea and overall excellent follow on to the first book. A couple of stories didn't quite fit the "co" part, more post apocalyptic. The standalone stories were good additions.

Please don't ever End!

This and its sister books are a complete triumph - I was concerned that I might not like the short story format but it works soooo well.
One or two of the books are a little weak but others are increasingly good and I think what works and doesn't will vary between readers but this series is definitely worth every penny.

Some gems when the world is ending

The second part in the series. I think this one had more misses than the last, but about the same amount of hits.

Hugh Howey ruled this - an excellent story and I am really looking forward to the third part. Desirina Boskovich still has a good story, even it wasn't as good as the first part. Annie Bellet and Jake Kerr round off the hit return authours, while Elizabeth Bear rocked the new comers.

Sarah Langan failed for the second time, and Jonathan Maberry lost it big time mainly due to the narration. Daniel H Wilson has to be the worse, i couldn't even finish it.

Looking forward to the final part of this series. Hopefully the hits will stay there, and will drag up a few of the others.
