High Praise for THIS WAY TO THE END TIMES
“Twenty-one exceptional tales of Earth’s devastation and humans’ inventive, and often ironically self-destructive, ways of surviving . . . These stunning stories contemplate survival while questioning whether life is worth saving, and many have such rich ideas and settings that they could easily spark full-length novels.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“With its range of contributors, this is a much needed volume that will both satisfy the high demand for apocalyptic tales and remind readers of the actual breadth and depth of this literature of the end of the world.” —ALA Booklist, Starred Review
“The variety of ways in which these stories choose to end the world offers a great deal—nightmarish, funny, lonely, or hopeful—for the imagination. Wonderfully written, surprisingly varied apocalyptic tales.” —Kirkus Reviews
“This collection is perfect for teen readers who have either exhausted the YA supply of apocalyptic tales or are beginning to outgrow them. This book will open their eyes to many “new to them” authors.” —RA For All: Horror
