In 2013, the first of three novels was released that depicted a quiet and bleak ending of mankind. 'The Man Who Watched The World End' provided a gradual and inevitable extinction without fighting or action, only people growing old and witnessing each aspect of society slowly fade away around them. Readers loved the personal and introspective take on the end of the world, and the following year 'A Different Alchemy' provided readers with another story set in the Great De-evolution. The third apocalyptic novel, 'The Hauntings of Playing God,' offers a final story of one person struggling to survive as the human population has disappeared around her.
For the first time, The Complete Collection presents all three Great De-evolution books in one volume. Be warned, these are not stories for people who need action sequences or pretty endings. But if you love introspective, reflective stories or want a different take on the end of mankind, these stories are for you.
