The Doomsday siren calls on civilization's last day. Natural disaster. Nuclear war. Pandemics. These are the ways the world ends.
Nobility. Self-Sacrifice. Unconditional Love. These are the qualities of the heroic animals in this collection.
"The Walking Dead" meets "The Incredible Journey" in 14 amazing tales by today's most talented independent authors. Seven stories set in all-new dystopian landscapes. Seven stories set in the bestselling post-apocalyptic worlds of David Adams's "Symphony of War," Michael Bunker's "Pennsylvania," Nick Cole's "Wasteland Saga," Hank Garner's "Weston Files," E.E. Giorgi's "Mayake Chronicles," Deirdre Gould's "After the Cure," and Edward W. Robertson's "Breakers."
When the world ends, the humans who survive will learn an old lesson anew-that friendship with animals can make the difference between a lonely death among the debris and a life well lived, with hope for the future.
Praise for "TAILS OF THE APOCALYPSE"
"One of the most original and captivating collections of end-of-the-world "tails," shown through the eyes of an amazing cast of unforgettable furry and feathered characters. Kudos to all the authors for bringing to life such refreshing and compelling four-legged or winged heroes. Whether or not you are an animal lover, these action-packed yet heartwarming stories will leave you hungry for a sequel! Truly a good read." --R.J. Pineiro, author of "THE FALL."
""TAILS OF THE APOCALYPSE" is a book project worthy not only of its heart-felt cause, but also of its crisp, imaginative writing. I found myself captured by the gripping power of "story," and this for me is telling, as I don't normally delve into this genre. With this collection I was given an opportunity to step beyond myself into something new, something fresh ... and I was captured. Thank you! Very well done, and highly recommended." Graham Salisbury, author of "UNDER THE BLOOD-RED SUN, HUNT FOR THE BAMBOO RAT"
"Every story here is well-written and moving. It's reassuring to know others have loved and lost their beloved furry or feathered friends, and glorious to see them immortalized in fiction. "TAILS OF THE APOCALYPSE" is a beautifully rendered collection of stories with a fresh twist on a genre that I normally don't even like. For me to find it so moving is a testament to the authors and their furry friends." Carol Kean writing for Perihelion Online Science Fiction Magazine (http: //perihelionsf.com/1512/reviews.htm/)
