A is for Apocalypse 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I recently read a different anthology of apocalypse stories headlined by some big names (George R. R. Martin, Arthur C. Clarke, and Neil Gaiman, to name a few). It was terribly disappointing; half the stories I couldn't finish and the other half were only passable, except the Neil Gaiman story. But whatever, this isn't a review of that book (The End of the World: Stories of the Apocalypse), which seemed to be thrown together haphazardly as a money maker riding on the backs of well-known names. When someone loves something, they create it with care. The editor of this book had a clear and interesting vision, and most of the authors in here obviously loved the stories they told. The anthology itself and the individual stories were compiled with a passion that shone through the pages. This is the second anthology I've read by editor Rhonda Parrish, and it didn't disappoint. I absolutely adored her collection of fairy stories, called Fae, so I couldn't wait to read more. Possibly the only reason I'm giving this book a lesser rating is because it wasn't quite as absorbing as the first. Some of the stories were a bit strange and confusing; however, I think that was part of the vision for the book. It is, after all, stories of the apocalypse. So many, however, struck me as beautiful and haunting. The lonely, afraid robot in "Y is for Yolo" will stay with me for a long time. Pick this up. Do it now. And then go read the rest of Rhonda's works.
