This collection is edited in a manner that organizes the stories in related topics instead of the hodge-podge oleo found in many other short story editions. While there is a few 'stinkers' (as any grouping will have) all the other tales are highly readable and thought provoking. There is a wide range of publishing dates from which these stories are taken, a broad range of dystopic subjects and a variety of writing styles.

The only complaint that I have is with the publishing company. Although they were able to keep the purchase price of this book at an affordable level, they did so by having the paper and binding be of questionable quality.

Not all the stories were my cup of tea but there were some good ones in there. Of course, I've been a fan of some of those writers for several decades.

This collection is creatively laid out in main sections that provide the reader with a clear taxonomy: Bang or Whimper, The Last Man, Life After the End, Dark - Distant Futures, and Witnesses to the End of the World. It features quality writers that come at the 'Apocalypse' from varied viewpoints. Also interesting is the span in the dates of publication of the stories ranging from 1944 to 2007 - it was interesting to read an individual entry and try to place it in the approximate year it was written. I had read Salvador, Salvage, and Dark, Dark Were the Tunnels in other books but this did not detract from my overall enjoyment. Standouts included: The Underdwellar (classic with a twist), Lucifer (pathetically longing for the past), The Wheel (reminiscent of The Lottery), and Flight to Forever (entertaining homage to The Time Machine). A solid collection.
