    • This is a great collection of apocalyptic writings. Obviously I've got a fascination with that sort of thing, having written Apocalypse All the Time. Reading this, I had the urge to write it all over again. Less out of exasperation though, more out of all of the possibilities from the different and cool visions inside. Nice stuff.


    • As another reviewer said, it isn't going to be what you think. That's actually what I appreciated most about it. I didn't know how many zombie stories I could read before I got bored. But there aren't many what you might call zombies or even nuclear catastrophes in the book. I found that a lot of it was left to the reader to interpret. Or guess at. In many of the pieces we are presented only with the here and now, left recoiling from some calamity or bracing for it.One big draw for me was that t [...]


    • Finished "Apocalypse Now: Poems and Prose from the End of Days" this weekend. Upper Rubber Boot sent me a review copy, however that didn't change my opinion of it, it just bumped it up the queue a bit.This was a really enjoyable collection. The short stories were almost all well written, there were a few I didn't care for, but I was happy to see such a diverse group of writers. Margaret Atwood, and Joyce Carol Oates had featured works, as did a few writers who I was not well acquainted with at a [...]


    • I won this book in a First Reads giveaway.I'm not into poems very often, but this book changed my mind. It combines one of my favorite types of things-dystopian fiction- with poems and it makes me just love the whole book! It was odd for me to like a book of poems.Some of my favorite poems include Fire Blight, Thanksgiving, and The Quiet Earth. I thank the authors for writing great poems. I also thank the editors of this book for selecting these poems and putting them into this masterpiece of a [...]


    • A collection of mostly poetry and some short stories, of mixed quality. There were two authors I was already very familiar with who contributed stories. JCO's was very strong and Atwood's was passable but not very apocalyptic. The only short story that really captured the haunting feel that I was expecting from this book was "The Beginnings of Sorrow" by Pinckney Benedict, although "The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchists Bees" as well as "Blue Sky White" and "The Siege" are also satisfyingly [...]


    • This is an eclectic mix of stories and poems taking as their theme the end of days. It's a mix, as I say, so not everything was to my taste, but there are definitely some corkers in there - Atwood's "The Silver Astroturfer" is the usual Atwoodian standard of brilliance and I also loved Joyce Carol Oates's "Thanksgiving". It's interesting how obsessed we are (and always have been - there are references to the end of days in eighteenth century texts, as well as contemporary ones) with the fear (or [...]


    • A medley of poetry and novellas loosely tied together as relating to apocalyptic themes, to varying degrees. Some gems in this collection stand apart:"The Adjuticator" by Brian Evenson, truly apocalyptic with a Gene Wolfe bent"Thanksgiving" by Joyce Carol Oates"The Silver Astroturfer" by Margaret Atwood"The Lawgiver" by Josh Woods"The Beginnings of Sorrow" by Pinckney Benedictvarious poems by David McCombs


    • To be honest, I struggled a bit to get through this one. There were a few pieces which definitely stood out -- Margaret Atwood (I found out about this project through her Facebook page), Paolo Bacigalupi, and Pinckney Benedict all had pieces that captivated me. But a much larger portion of the collection was, not bad writing; just not what I was expecting.


    • I'm not completely finished with this work, but as a subscriber to The Paris Review, the New Yorker, and other reputable periodicals, I can tell you that Apocalypse Now is high-quality prose and poetry. If you are an avid reader, this book is a must
