Eight Sci-Fi and Horror stories by David Michael, with illustrations by Don Michael, Jr.
“A Fine Mess” – Kenneth hunts edible Strings in the Frayed remnants of the vegetation of the world.
“Enamored” – Chick-lit meets cyberpunk as overworked, underappreciated Roxy heads to work.
“Curtain Call” – The White Hot Hemisphere Community Theater Company chose Shakespeare’s Hamlet for their first production after the cataclysm–and possibly their last before the end of the world.
“Insanity” – Corporal Jonathan “Drooz” Andrews wakes up in the middle of a war and wishes he remembered what he spent his re-enlistment bonus on.
“Encounter” – The Traveler tries to help in the aftermath of a riot in the Trog Ghetto.
“Until Death Do Us Part” – Ross and Marjorie grow old together in undead retirement.
“Baptism” – Drunk on mojitos, high on love, and smelling of sex on the beach, Myra Acevedo went swimming and drowned. Then she became the end of the world.
Bonus Story: “Roxy Overload” – Roxy, from “Enamored”, heads home after work on an evening when it seems everyone–her best friend, her mom, her men–even her dog–wants a piece of her.
