Description du produit

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must-have for any lover of end-of-the-world fiction 15 mars 2014

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!

As far as collections go, the End is Nigh is one of the better non-best-of-year ones that I’ve read. The stories are consistently good, with no outright fails, and many that stand out as exceptional. Conceptually, the Apocalypse Triptych, of which the End is Nigh is volume one, is ingenious. I especially liked the promise that several of the authors would have stories in the other two volumes, detailing the ‘during’ and ‘after’ timelines. However, this backfired somewhat… though not abysmally so, but at times I was indeed bothered. I haven’t read the others in the triptych yet (and I do plan to) but several of the stories here have such a clear lack of resolution that they feel incomplete. I have no problem with a good Flash Gorden-esque cliffhanger, and some go that route, but others just kind of stop, as if a longer story had been divided into three volumes. I feel nitpicky pointing this out, but I think it’s important to acknowledge. In the long run, I may double back and decide that, in fact, judging the triptych as a whole, this turned out to be very effective, but as a single volume, some of the stories are simply incomplete. To end on a positive note, I wanted to highlight some of the stories I enjoyed the most. ‘Shooting the Apocalypse’ by Paolo Bacigalupi has an impressive style, creepy but tangible, and a setting simultaneously unique and familiar. ‘Love Perverts’ is definitely perverted, and I hope Sarah Langan has another story in the next volume, she must! ‘The Fifth Day of Deer Camp’ by Scott Sigler is absolutely a day time read, unless you plan on waiting out the night armed by a boarded up window. And ‘BRING HER TO ME’ by Ben H. Winters covers territory I haven’t ever read before, and I hope and expect to see more of him later in the triptych as well. All said and done, this is a good solid start to a great idea. John Joseph Adams and Hugh Howey did not let me down.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Most stories are nothing special. Only good for hardcore fans. 27 juillet 2014
Par Francis Tapon - Publié sur

- About a dozen short stories all about life right before an apocalypse.
- A couple of good stories.

- I didn't find most of the stories that engaging.
- There was no story I would want to re-read.
- Only a couple of stories would I recommend to a friend to read.

CONCLUSION: It's not that the stories are bad, it's just that they're not that great. Most are just OK, which is why I give the book 3 stars. I was surprised because there are several heavy hitters (star authors) hope the future 2 volumes are better, because I like the genre.

Like almost al. John Adams anthologies, this volume has higher qualitywriting than most and at least a few ,if not more, undicovered authors whose short format stories make you want to go out and explore rtheir other writings. The other best thing about the anthology is that there is no repetitive cookie-cutter 'writing to the book' themes in the entire work. All stories set up different points of view , e.g. a struggling mother of two who feels there is something deciededly different in one of her children and his peers, all born after a Kracatoa-type volanic eruption. The author coveys a sense of foreboding that reflects a fear of all parents , that their child is 'different'. A powerful short story that sticks in your consciousness. Not all the stories are to every taste , which is actually another reason for the rave review. Too many " Wolfman Zobie in space " collections are boring when the same setting generates the same story over and over so that by the time you get to later stories you are numb and your imagination has been starved into submission. No way is ths anothogy like that , the last story read is as fresh as the first and different enough to keep your interest rivited . Good read! .
