Overview

The Last Man Anthology by Hunter Liguore

The Last Man Anthology takes inspiration from Mary Shelley's novel, The Last Man, and showcases short stories and poems that build on the theme of finality-of being last. From experiencing the last snowmelt to taking part of the last day on Earth,The Last Man Anthology propels catastrophic literature into the twenty-first century while staying true to Shelley's timeless themes of chaos and isolation.

How would it feel to know you were experiencing your last day on Earth? What would the end of the world look like to the Greek gods, the last bookstore owner, or the last philosopher? The story settings range from the fringes of Outer Space, to the last museum, to New York City the day before September 11, 2001, to Brighton Street with the last teddybear, and many more.

Includes veteran writers Ray Bradbury, C. J. Cherryh, Barry N. Malzberg, along with such classic sci-fi authors as H. G. Wells, Edgar Allen Poe, and Jack London, and an assortment of contemporary writers from four continents. We're also honored to have a third grader make the cut!.

Catastrophic short stories and poems that deal with end of the world scenarios, cataclysms, disasters and other apocalyptic events.

"A hauntingly beautiful collection of tales by new and established authors." www.swordandsagapress.com
