Product Description

The end of the world as you’ve never known it.

From the pages of the best-selling Duck & Cover Adventures comes thirteen stories of those who survived the apocalypse. Some would go on to be heroes, others villains, some were dogs and will stay dogs, but they all must contend with the horrors of the new world and find a way to survive in the wasteland that was America.

Long before he was a knight in the apocalypse, Tommy was preparing for the end of the world. His friends grew concerned for his well-being and planned to intervene. It wasn’t so much that he was preparing, it was what he was preparing for.

Fidget and Sasquatch were loyal companions to the end. Now that the end has arrived, they must say goodbye to the only home they’ve ever known. If they can figure out how to open the door.

They took refuge in a homemade bomb shelter when the end of the world began. There they were safe from the bombs and the fallout. But they were never safe from each other.

Fidget and Sasquatch are on their own, a situation neither of them are really comfortable with. They decide to join a pack for safety, for food and for friends. Now all they have to do is find one.

Before the world ended, Jackson drifted from job to job, never settling on anything that could be called a career path. But with the new world comes new opportunities. This is what he was born to do.

Caught between county fair gigs during the apocalypse, the members of a cover band find themselves the last band left in the world. Getting gigs should be easy. Should be.

The Librarian has seen his fair share of “wasteland justice.” Now he’s chained to the floor of a grocery store with a man he must face in court. In a battle to the death. Naturally.

Sergeant Satan was genetically enhanced to be the world’s best military scout. He was designed to be smarter, faster and more than a match for any dog this side of the apocalypse. Of course, his creators had never met Fidget.

They’ve got a new name. They’ve got a new act. And they are ready to rock your face off. Now all the last band in the world needs is a gig.

Willie and Coy aren’t the brightest. Or the best looking. Or very likeable. No one would ever accuse them of being hard workers. But the pair have found a way to make an honest living in the apocalypse. If they can get enough people to watch.

Tired of looking for a pack to join, Sasquatch and Fidget reminisce about the joys and delights of life in a people pack.

Deep in the swamp of New Orleans awaits a terror many refuse to believe exists. It’s a monster of myth and rumor so horrible that it could not possibly be real. On the trail of a kidnapped woman, The Librarian must seek out and confront this monster of myth.

Man is the true monster. Unless there is a man who is a monster that also makes monsters. Then he’s the truest monster and only a post-apocalyptic nomadic warrior can bring this monster’s monster-making to an end.

Get this laugh-out-loud collection of stories from the Duck & Cover Adventures post-apocalyptic series now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read from Start to Finish! 14 June 2017

This is a collection of short stories, some of which are back stories to some of his characters in his Duck and Cover novels. But I have to admit there are multiple chapters devoted to two furry friends, Fidget - a Beagle and Sasquatch - a Great Dane, and their ordeals in he post apocalyptic world. I laughed and almost wanted to cry a few times it was so well written. if you can, save this oe to read after the novles and you will better understand the back stories.

Benjamin Wallace has a real talent for writing and one that keeps the pace moving right along and never really lets you figure just exactly how things might end. In my opinion a series well worth reading.
5.0 out of 5 stars Cataclysms have rarely been so much fun! 24 October 2016

In this outstanding addition to the Duck & Cover series, Benjamin Wallace expands on his already-hilarious apocalypse franchise with a winsome set of stories that catch us up with some of our favorite characters, introduces a bad mamma-jamma of a new hero, and intersperses the ongoing exploits of one of the most lovable animal buddy teams ever, written into their own post-apocalyptic mini-epic that’s as touching and disarming a literary friendship as it is an uproarious comedy pairing. It’s a welcome return for Wallace’s sharp-edged humor, in spectacular form with its wry observations, full-bore snark, and take-you-by-surprise laugh-out-loud moments, and his prodigious skill with edge-of-your-seat action scenes are put to fresh, fantastic use here with Willie and Coy’s daredevil exploits and the Librarian’s encounter with an alligator cult (yeah…it’s as awesome as it sounds). But what shines through most in the collection is the fact that, throughout his ever-expanding after-armageddon universe, Wallace has crafted a set of characters we genuinely feel for and look forward to seeing in their every next exploit. It’s as if the end of the world in his hands has exposed and made room for all sorts of unexpected humanity…and what a wonderful thing that is. Eagerly awaiting the next post-apocalyptic happenings!
5.0 out of 5 stars Wallace delivers again! 18 October 2016

Wallace delivers again with Tales of the Apocalypse, a collection of short stories that weave themselves into the nonstop-thrills-and-laugh world of the Duck & Cover Adventures. With these stories, Wallace allows us to peek behind the curtain at the backstories of some of the characters who have popped up in the series so far, and we also get introduced to quite a few who I think (hope hope hope) we'll see more of in future books.

The structure of this book is a delightful surprise. Unlike most short story collections, which feature a stockpile of one-and-done stories, many of Wallace's stories share common through-lines with others, which makes reading the stories in Tales feel a little like reading chapters in a novel. It's a difficult trick to pull off, utilizing short stories as part of a larger storytelling scope, and Wallace does it expertly, with his signature wit and flair.

Great Comedy, I really liked the other books in the series, this is significantly more light hearted. The 2 dogs are easily the best part.
