THE END IS NIGH, the “pre-apocalypse” anthology I co-edited with Hugh Howey, is part of Amazon’s Kindle Daily Deal today (June 21). That means the ebook edition, which normally sells for $6.99, is on sale for just $1.99! That’s 22 stories, and more than 130,000 words for just under two bucks. (Note: The Kindle Daily Deal is for US customers only. Sorry!)
I think it’s a really great book naturally, but don’t take my word for it. Here’s what some reviewers have said about it:
- “The End Is Nigh is very good. Of course it is. Adams and Howey are a two-man tour-de-force of post-apocalyptic lit. … Ultimately, the best thing about The End Is Nigh is how elegantly it balances on the thin line between beauty and devastation. There’s no story in the book that didn’t break my heart at least a little, and there’s none of the twenty-two that hasn’t stuck with me, hard.” —Wired.com
- “Even if you aren’t typically a fan of short stories, really do pick this up. If you love apocalypse stories, pick this up. Actually no matter what you like, pick this up…seriously.” —Seattle Geekly
- “Destined to be a favorite among end-of-the-world enthusiasts.” —FEARnet
Additionally, the anthology has racked up 70 reviews over on Amazon and has a 4.3/5 average star rating.
Among the 22 stories it contains includes new, never-before-published stories by Paolo Bacigalupi, Hugh Howey, Seanan McGuire, Nancy Kress, Scott Sigler, Ben H. Winters, Charlie Jane Anders, Jonathan Maberry, Robin Wasserman, Tananarive Due, and many more. You can learn more about the anthology—and read free samples from the book—on its official website.
