What happens when you put a bunch of zombie book authors in the same online group? They come up with Visions of the Apocalypse! While they may vary in details, like the day it starts or the cause of the outbreak, the intensity and teeth gnashing gore of zombies is the unifying theme. You will sample apocalyptic scenarios from numerous perspectives; including a wealthy man on a ship, a bounty hunter, a corrections officer, a soldier in Iraq, a scientist, a child in a school, a parent trying to rescue his child from a school, a group of futuristic teenage gamers, a family just trying to get out alive, a soldier in the future, and even a zombie! Each story flows together to give a complete picture of the end of the world.
This anthology was compiled by David P Forsyth. Contributing authors include Hugh Howey, Craig DiLouie, Shawn Chesser, Rhiannon Frater, DA Roberts, John Campbell, Dan Williams, Saul Tanpepper, Joseph Souza, Julie Rudolph, Ian Woodhead, Samuel Garcia, Mark Clodi and many more!
