Editorial Reviews

Review

"Adams and Howey are a two-man tour-de-force of post-apocalyptic lit. ... Ultimately, the best thing about The End Is Nigh is how elegantly it balances on the thin line between beauty and devastation. There's no story in the book that didn't break my heart at least a little, and there's none of the twenty-two that hasn't stuck with me, hard. When the end is coming and the wolves are at the door, you hold tight to whatever's at hand." --Wired

"Some of these stories will make it onto the award ballots and into the year's best anthologies, and deservedly so. The anthology as a whole will probably be up for best anthology on some ballots, too." --Black Gate
 
"I've never read an entire anthology through from cover to cover. Until now. John Joseph Adams has done something grand, putting these stories together. The quality of contributors is amazing and the works themselves complement each other nicely. [...] Every single one is well-written and thought provoking, which is exactly the way apocalyptic fiction should be. Nearly all of them break your heart at some point, in ways that you just don't see coming." --After the Last Day

Book Description

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 bestselling 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 focuses on life after the apocalypse.

THE END IS NIGH features all-new, never-before-published works by Hugh Howey, Paolo Bacigalupi, Jamie Ford, Seanan McGuire, Tananarive Due, Jonathan Maberry, Robin Wasserman, Nancy Kress, Charlie Jane Anders, Ken Liu, and many others.
