Stories of the end of civilized life have always fascinated us, from the mythological world endings, Armageddon to Ragnorok, to the flood stories of across the Ancient world. They make us wonder what we would do if all around us came to an end: no transport, no fuel, no communications: a retreat into the desperation, the onslaught of disease, how would we survive? This is the source of zombie literature and provides the inspiration for this fabulous mix of horror and adventure, of classic and brand new writing in the successful series of Gothic Fantasy titles from Flame Tree. These new authors will appear alongside the following classic and essential writers: Stephen Vincent Benét, J.D. Beresford, Lord Byron, Arthur Conan Doyle, George Allan England, William Hope Hodgson, H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, M.P. Shiel, Snorri Sturluson, Jules Verne, H.G. Wells; along with a retelling of the Ancient Sumerian and Babylonian Myth of Apocalypse.
