Surviving the Apocalypse: Dystopias and Doomsdays

Surviving the Apocalypse is a short story collection which attempts to plumb both the depths of human depravity and our profound ability to overcome adversity.

Some stories feature protagonists who have endured terrifying ordeals and still retain their humanity, while others show our ingenuity when we encounter a seemingly impossible obstacle. Four of the stories from this collection feature the four riders of the apocalypse as they ride on the wings of death, while others ponder the future of our technological prowess or shift us into the age of unpolished stone.

These are stories about people we recognize faced with impossible choices and unenviable tasks. These thought experiments in solitude and resourcefulness show us how much of what we think of as humanity can be preserved when faced with the destruction of our world.
