“It’s hard to find a good SF magazine these days. I thought these stories were very readable and entertaining, and at least one was laugh-out-loud funny. If you remember an old magazine called Aboriginal, this is a lot like that.”

STUPEFYING STORIES 1.11 RELEASED




Hard to believe it's December 2012 already. Depending on who you listen to we only have about three weeks left before the world ends, either from magnetic pole reversal, crossing the galactic ecliptic, the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, a collision with Planet X, global warming, global cooling, the return of Quetzalcoatl, President Obama and Speaker of the House Boehner joining hands, flooring it, and going full Thelma & Louise off the edge of the fiscal cliff, or the regrettable and wholly inexplicable failure of the Ancient Mayans to invent the perpetual calendar.

In any case, as we were putting together this book, we thought: what better way to go out with a bang that with a bunch of great stories exploring the end of the world—and what might come after? From ecological catastrophes to alien invasions; from tyrannical overreaching central governments to dangerous unfettered cowboy capitalists: It's the End of the World, As We Know It!

And the stories in this book will make you feel just fine.

  1. Bruce, many thank for publishing my short story in the December edition of Stupefying Stories. Stoked it ended up in this collection--exploring the end of the world as we know it. I’m about to launch into reading these…anticipating a literary apocalyptic experience, not without a glimmer of hope.
