Cover Reveal Giveaway A Is FOR APOCALYPSE @candacemom2two

 Welcome to the cover reveal for A is for Apocalypse, an anthology edited by Rhonda Parrish.



Often bleak, sometimes hopeful, always thoughtful, if A is for Apocalypse is as prescient as it is entertaining, we're in for quite a ride.” - Amanda C. Davis, author of The Lair of the Twelve Princesses
What do you get when you take twenty-six amazing writers, randomly assign them a letter of the alphabet and give them complete artistic freedom within a theme?
A is for Apocalypse
A is for Apocalypse contains twenty-six apocalyptic stories written by both well-known and up-and-coming writers. Monsters, meteors, floods, war–the causes of the apocalypses in these tales are as varied as the stories themselves.
This volume contains work by Ennis Drake, Beth Cato, Kenneth Schneyer, Damien Angelica Walters, K. L. Young, Marge Simon, Milo James Fowler, Simon Kewin, C.S. MacCath, Steve Bornstein and more!

To celebrate we have a Q&A for you with some of the contributors!
As
a contributor to this anthology you are privileged to have been able to read a
proof copy of it already. Aside from your own story, which one is your
favourite? No spoilers, please :)

Michael
Kellar -
"U is for REDACTED" got to me early on, and
ended up being a perfect little glimpse of what would be important when facing
the end of the world.

Marge Simon -
That’s really, really a hard question to answer. But I’m picking Damian
Angelica Walters’ moving “U is for REDACTED”. It reminded me much of one of my
top favorite dark sf stories, “Testament”.

Sara Cleto
- I'll admit that I haven't read through the entire anthology yet (it will be
my reward when I finish this semester's grading!), but I adore Brittany Warman's
story- as always, her images are haunting, powerful, and full of wonderful
folkloric resonances.



Beth Cato - I loved R.
It's one of the longer stories in the anthology, I think, and it's a unique
take on events leading up to the apocalypse. The whole vibe is creepy and
gritty.
Blurbs:
“Editor Rhonda Parrish gives us apocalyptic fiction at its finest. There's not a whimper to be heard amongst these twenty-six End of the World stories. A wonderful collection.” -Deborah Walker, Nature Futures author.

  2. Intriguing title. BTW, love the doggie graphics on your site. Just read Nick Trout's "Dog Gone, Back Soon" and this made me think of it.
