Summary

Shannon and her dog, Max, have been hiding in her shelter for three weeks. The phones are dead and the radio has been nothing but static for several weeks now. What will happen when Shannon leaves the safety of her shelter in search of food? Has the Apocalypse happened? We all have a Shelf Life.
 

	This is a short story from the anthology Apocalypse compiled by Cynthia Shepp. 

	What began as an idea soon set into motion a chain of events which would lead to the next APOCALYPSE...
 

	I want you to imagine that the world as we know it has ended. Total Apocalypse. You only have yourself and one other person you can rely on. There is no power, no water, and you are armed with only a backpack of supplies. In your backpack there are matches, four bottles of water, enough food to make it three days, and one weapon. Spin a web of survival, danger, and conflict. Tell us why the world as you knew it ended, tell us your fears, make up a world in which nothing is the same and survival is hard, and the world is against you. Tell us what you would do, where you would go, how you would get food and water, how you would protect yourself, and how you would make your life over again. You could even throw in some romance and meet some new people to help you on your journey.

    Troy: city of gold, gatekeeper of the east, haven of the god-born and the lucky, a city destined to last a thousand years. But the Fates have other plans—the Fates, and a woman named Helen. In the shadow of Troy's gates, all must be reborn in the greatest war of the ancient world: slaves and queens, heroes and cowards, seers and kings . . . and these are their stories. 
    A young princess and an embittered prince join forces to prevent a fatal elopement. 
    A tormented seeress challenges the gods themselves to save her city from the impending disaster.

    “[A] brilliant, triumphantly lurid writer as well as a supremely talented, elegant stylist whose prose is smart and nervy. He might also be the last literary outlaw in mainstream American fiction.” —Bret Easton Ellis 
    Internationally acclaimed writer Dennis Cooper continues to study the material he's always explored honestly, but does so now—in stories—with a sense of awareness and a satirical touch that exploits and winks at his mastery of this world. As it has done for decades, Cooper’s taut, controlled prose lays bare the compulsions and troubling emptiness of the human soul.

    On the steppes of Mongolia, an old woman wrestles with an unknown power The dream is always the same: Killers are riding against the Mongol camp, and Khokakhchin must run to rescue the horses before a wall of fire swallows them whole. She wakes, remembering when a trader offered her the Eye of Flame—a disk that could conjure fire—and shudders in fear of the power that lies within her. In the camp of a Mongol tribe, the home of the boy who will grow up to be Genghis Khan, Khokakhchin must confront that power, lest the whole world be consumed by fire.   In the haunting title novella, Pamela Sargent evokes a lost world whose values are not so different from our own. This and the other stories included in this volume, set in the past and the present, show her to be a deft writer at the top of her form.

    This early work by Guy de Maupassant was originally published in the 1880's. Guy de Maupassant was born in 1850 at the Château de Miromesnil, near Dieppe, France. He came from a prosperous family, but when Maupassant was eleven, his mother risked social disgrace by trying to secure a legal separation from her husband. After the split, Maupassant lived with his mother till he was thirteen, and inherited her love of classical literature. In 1880, Maupassant published his first – and, according to many, his best – short story, entitled 'Boule de Suif' ('Ball of Fat'). It was an instant success. He went on to be extremely prolific during the 1880s, working methodically to produce up to four volumes of short fiction every year. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.

    Tales that take you behind the scenes of a powerful New York law firm, from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Partners. Louis Auchincloss, known to most people as the author of best-selling novels, is also a practicing lawyer. In Powers of Attorney he combines his two vocations in a graphic and authoritative account of the internal workings of a big New York law office. Each of the twelve episodes which make up the book concerns a member of the fictional firm of Tower, Tilncy & Webb and their plots are interwoven as inevitably as are the lives of the characters involved. Clitus Tilney, the senior partner, has set his stamp on the firm. He is responsible for the growth that makes envious competitors refer to it as a "law factory" and responsible too for the retention of ethical principles considered old-fashioned by certain of his colleagues. The realm he rules is contained in two floors of a vast new office building on Wall Street, and it is there that most of the rivalries, victories, disappointments, and compromises are worked out, to the satisfaction of Mr. Tilney and of the reader. Mr. Auchincloss's understanding of human relations in general and the ramifications of the law in particular expose in clear relief the maneuverings and power struggles of a group of people disparate in all but their calling: Harry Reilly, the bright young man from Brooklyn; Rutherford Tower, last of the founding family; Mrs. Abercrombie, whose forty years with the firm give her a special status; Chambers Todd, driven to questionable tactics by his insatiable ambition; and many others. Mr. Auchincloss guides us through the byways of the legal world glimpsed in his earlier novel, The Great World and Timothy Colt. With superb craftsmanship, he shows us the denizens of this world in all their human and often touching frailty, balancing humor with warmth, incisiveness with tolerance. This is a book to savor and to lend only to those who can be trusted to return it.
