From the Book of Revelation to The Road Warrior, from A Canticle for Leibowitz to The Road, storytellers have long imagined the end of the world, weaving eschatological tales of catastrophe, chaos, and calamity. In doing so, these visionary authors have addressed one of the most challenging and enduring themes of imaginative fiction: The nature of life in the aftermath of total societal collapse.

This collection of short stories seem more like a college collection of student papers than real commercial writing. Big words, overly described feelings or circumstances sound more like trying to impress an English teacher, than real fiction. Stories are rushed to set the scene, and rushed to get to the punchline. All the stories follow the same script with different words.

Many of the decisions made by characters are emotionally driven, even when the character is a man. Men and women think differently in reality. This difference is exaggerated in crisis. The authors fail to employ this effectively, instead these books read like romance novels. Even the male characters fail to employ reasonable logic. Main characters are strong female (no problem with that) but though emotion empower their enemies to control them and luck gets them out of situation after situation. Followers of the strong women, follow into certain death (low probability of survival) situations without question (or common sense) and die. Hmmm...not how I view human behavior in crisis. Oh, and if the author uses a commercial pilot, then understand how pilots fly a plane. If the author uses a career Army/Marine, understand tactics. And if author has prisoners in the story, understand prisons/prisoners.
