I guess I was disappointed with a majority of the stories because my definition of an "Apocalypse" and some of the author's definitions were at variance. I think an Apocalypse means there won't be Semi Trucks driving around, Elementary Schools functioning, Cigarette factories putting out death-sticks, or (especially) an Internet! If you are like me in this, skip all but "A Song Before Sunset", "Dark, Dark were the Tunnels", and "Never Despair." That leaves you much of the book that is drivel.

There are several very good short stories in this anthology and in the back of the book it gives reference to a great many more books to read of the same genre.

i have to admit I expected something far different than what I got here. I was expecting depictions of the apocalypse, but in many stories, it had already happened the the stories were about those who struggled to make sense of it.
