The End is Nigh

REVIEW: A Rave From

There’s a rave review of THE END IS NIGH over on

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. When the end is coming and the wolves are at the door, you hold tight to whatever’s at hand. [review]

REVIEW: “Some of these stories will make it onto the award ballots and into the year’s best anthologies, and deservedly so.”

Black Gate reviews THE END IS NIGH: “Some of these stories will make it onto the award ballots and into the year’s best anthologies, and deservedly so. The anthology as a whole will probably be up for best anthology on some ballots, too.” [review]
