Overview

The End of the World: Stories of the Apocalypse by Martin H. Greenberg

No longer relegated to the fringes of literature, this explosive collection of the world's best science fiction writers brings the inventors of alien invasions, devastating meteors, doomsday scenarios, and all-out nuclear war back to the bookstores with a bang.

The best writers of the early 1900s were the first to flood New York with tidal waves, destroy Illinois with alien invaders, paralyze Washington with meteors, and lay waste to the Midwest with nuclear fallout. Now appearing for the first time ever in one apocalyptic volume are those early doomsday writers and their contemporaries, including Neil Gaiman, Orson Scott Card, Lucius Shepard, Robert Sheckley, Norman Spinrad, Arthur C. Clarke, William F. Nolan, Poul Anderson, Lester del Rey, and more. Relive these childhood classics or discover them here for the first time. Each story details the eerie political, social, and environmental destruction of our world.

The stories are solid but there are too many broken words, where for no reason a word will be split into 2 non-words separated by a space. I gave up on the book after seein 4 of these in 2 pages. If this sort of thing doesn't bother you, you'll probably like the book just fine. If it does, then consider finding something else.
