Présentation de l'éditeur

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, Scott Sigler, Robin Wasserman, Nancy Kress, Charlie Jane Anders, Ken Liu, and many others.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read 1 mars 2014
Par Tom M - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This collection of stories is one of the best anthologies that I've ever read and the idea of stringing three books together into a triptych is brilliant. This book is the first in a set of three book dealing with the apocalypse, this one containing stories specifically leading up to the end and the next two with stories taking place during and after. Every story in this collection brought me to a new view of the upcoming end to the world. Even though a few of the stories have a similar method of ending the world, every story was pleasantly unique. The real greatness of every story in this collection comes from the people in the stories and how they react to their unique situation. Every story left me wanting to know what happened next. Fortunately, many of the authors are doing continuations of their stories in the subsequent books. I'm hesitant to share anything specific about the stories for fear of spoiling anything. The joy of reading this book is, starting a story knowing the world is going to end for the people you are reading about,but not knowing how it will happen or what they will do.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best anthologies 7 mars 2014

Some people may think what I have written have some *spoilers*. Gave a very brief overview and my thoughts on the stories.

This anthology is the best I have read. In any book with so many stories, some hit the mark, some don't. There is a little bit for everyone. I feel lucky that the first few stories I chose to read were really great. That is what kept me involved and reading "just one more" before putting it down for the night.

I wanted to comment on a few of the stories.

Goodnight Moon by Annie Bellet is my favorite. A tear jerker about astronauts on the moon and an impending asteroid and life and death decisions. Beautifully written.

Spores by Seanan McGuire was really great. Creepy good and it has to do with mold!

She's Got a Ticket To Ride by Jonathan Mayberry. At first I was thinking how similar it was to Hale-Bopp Heaven's Gate. But after that was mentioned in the story, it went beyond that idea and will have you re-thinking what a "cult" really is. I enjoyed it very much.

In The Air by Hugh Howey. Let me just say this: If only Shift was this compact and short...

Shooting The Apocalypse by Paolo Bacigalupi. I was really looking forward to this one and maybe I will re-visit it but I was not interested in this one.

Dancing With Death in the Land of the Nod by Will McIntosh and Wedding Day by Jake Kerr are very different types of stories but both have an ironic twist that make these two really special. Dancing With Death involves an incurable disease that puts its victims into a paralysis but they can still think clearly. One of the main characters in the story is a caretaker for his father who has Alzheimer's. The irony is when the main character thanks good "family genes". Read it, it is a great one. In Wedding Day, a to be married lesbian couple has a chance to escape certain death from an impending meteor strike if only the government didn't halt all marriages.

Removal Order by Tananarive Due. With no real explanation of what has caused the world to go into its demise, the story jumps right in with Nayama who is taking care of her Grandmother who has cancer. A story about sacrifice and love. Caring for a loved one outweighs the fact that the world is dying around you.

Heaven is a Place on Planet X by Desirina Boskovich. A strange but interesting story about an alien invasion. The aliens are going to zap the whole world into dust but promises a new heavenly life on a new planet that will occur on a certain date at an exact time. First though, random people around the world are chosen as enforcers to eliminate anyone who doesn't follow instructions given by the aliens. I am hoping this story has a continuation in the next book, the end is filled with foreboding of the ultimate fate of the enforcers. A story that warns about Propaganda and blindly following those that use power and violence to get people to submit.

Finally, I think it is interesting that a few reader's complained or felt the need to comment on some type of "gay agenda" with a few of the stores. I feel bad for ignorant people. Dystopian/Apocalyptic stories almost always have messages about politics, propaganda, societal values, religious beliefs, anarchy etc. To me, any complaint about a story being a "political gay rights agenda" story is so foolish. The story "Wedding Day" has so much depth and makes such a powerful statement about inequity (for any class or type of person). It is too bad that some people can not allow themselves to open their mind to the bigger meaning.

I have never written a review before, but I feel that I have to for The End is Nigh. I loved every story in this collection. They are well written, well edited, interesting, disturbing and entertaining. Seanan McGuire's story scarred me for life. I have to keep this review short as I am busy stocking up on supplies.....

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must-have for any lover of end-of-the-world fiction 15 mars 2014
Par Toni L. Boughton - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Each story is fantastic, with well-thought out variations on TEOTWAWKI. You get prions, GMO, nanotechnology, asteroids, and even mutations -a little something for everyone. I read the entire collection in about two hours because I simply couldn't put it down. My only complaint is the agonizing wait for the next part of the triptych!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great collection of varied takes on the End 4 mars 2014
Par S.Heasley - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
The best thing about this collection is the variety. There are heart-breaking stories that about made me weep while wrapping the story up pretty neatly, and others that simply left me wanting to continue reading the story. Robot uprisings, maniacs blowing up everything (damn them all to Hell!), the grey goo having its way, and zombie plagues breaking out. Just terrific stuff!
