Wars to End All Wars

Wars to End All Wars

Hello, everyone. I am pleased to announce yet another literary work featuring a bunch of words written by your significant other, me. It is an anthology commemorating the 100th anniversary of WWI with alternate history stories from the trenches, and it is aptly named Wars to End All Wars – Alternate Tales from the Trenches. Real-life events, only not quite. Now, surprise surprise, one of the contributing authors to this piece is Elizabeth Moon!

The End tour

The End tour

Survival is a mean, cold bastard. You think you’ve got it all figured out, then the world ends, and you realize, well, not quite. At least, that’s what the twelve stories in The End, a short story apocalyptic anthology featuring speculative fiction written by the SFFWorld.com forum members, tell us. And so you learn that the end can be faced in many different ways, by being nice to your floor cleaner, by ingesting bacteria, through introspection, with celestial physics making its naughty things.

Anyhow, some of us agreed to do a tour. Each week, someone else would blog shortly about their experience with the anthology, and give a short blurb on a story that impressed them, an angle they liked best, a message they would like to focus on. This week is my turn, and so let me tell you what I had in mind.

Dear readers, as you most vividly recall, several months ago, I participated in a writing contest called The End – a short story apocalyptic anthology featuring speculative fiction written by the SFFWorld.com forum members.
