Summary
"From the Sumerian epic of Gilgamesh to Norse prophecies of Ragnarok to the Revelation of Saint John to Cormac McCarthy's The Road, any number of fictional zombie Armageddons, and the dystopic world of The Hunger Games--we have always wondered what will happen after the world as we know it ends. No matter what the doomsday scenario--cataclysmic climate change, political chaos, societal collapse, nuclear war, pestilence, or so many other dreaded variations--we inevitably believe that even though the world perishes, some portion of humankind will live on. Such stories involve death and disaster, but they are also tales of rebirth and survival. Grim or triumphant, these outstanding, post-apocalyptic stories selected from the best of those published in the tumultuous last decade allow us to consider what life will be like after the end."--from cover, p. [4]
