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.

	11 authors, 11 different stories, one main idea…welcome to the APOCALYPSE…

    The highly anticipated third book in THE ENDING SERIES. 
    Hope brought them together, but it's now fear that drives them...and threatens to tear them apart. 
     
    Zoe and her companions succeeded in rescuing Dani from the Colony. But not without sacrifice. Beaten and broken, they head west, determined to leave behind the torment and horrors they experienced in Colorado. 
    As Dani and Zoe make the perilous trek home to Bodega Bay, they learn that danger can take many forms--other survivors, their friends, even themselves--and that things are rarely what they seem. Zoe is desperate to become the woman she sees in others' memories, while Dani struggles to conceal damaging secrets, risking losing herself--her humanity--completely. Together, they must rediscover the true meaning of friendship, love, and trust, and learn just how hard they're willing to fight for what remains of their shattered world. 
    As relationships are put to the test, second chances are given, and new life emerges, death lurks in the most unlikely of places. To survive, Dani and Zoe must accept that sometimes hope alone isn't enough.

    Nine stories travel through time and space to share insights into the human—and not so human—experience inthis gripping science fiction anthology from respected author and critic Algis Budrys   Through stories of humans mistaken for gods and assimilation into an android society, this stunning collection illustrates our inability to understand and communicate with one another.   In “Silent Brother,” the spaceship Endeavor returns to Albuquerque, New Mexico, from the five-planet solar system of Alpha Centaurus; in an unprecedented move, the UN forbids interviews with the returning astronauts or any examination of the starship, but one man—wheelchair-bound Harvey Cable—thinks he knows the nature of a strange disease that may be spreading. In “Between the Dark and the Daylight,” people trapped under a dome in the aftermath of an expedition that crashes on an unlivable planet find a terrifying way to fight back. “The Man Who Tasted Ashes” is a longtime assassin who meddles in human history; his latest assignment will set off World War III. And nothing is what it seems in a story where a doctor visits a man blinded in an accident. Other tales are populated by humanoids, mutants, parasitic aliens, and a girl with a special gift, who is rejected by others of her kind.

    To Seek Revenge, You Must First Manage to Survive 
    Ava O’Hare just wanted to love her child and live in peace, but a normal life was never her destiny. One stark day in 1745, everything she loved was taken from her, ripped away by the very man who should have protected her. 
    Somehow, miraculously, Ava survived. 
    Now it was time for revenge. 
    Long before Ava O’Hare became the successful leader of a modern-day Renegade cell, she had other battles to fight. If you’ve enjoyed the Unbounded series, you will love this extra peek into the events that shaped Ava’s life and made her a Guardian of Humanity. 
    Please note: Ava’s Revenge is a novella, not a full-length novel. It is separate from the main series and can be enjoyed at any time. However, the last scene is present day and fits into the Unbounded timeline just after the end of The Change (Unbounded Book 1), so readers may better appreciate Ava’s Revenge after reading the first book.

    In the year 2203, the tenuous truce between humans and Others, straddles the line between hate rhetoric from the fanatical One Racers, and acceptance by more liberal humans. Angry cracks appear in this diplomatic accord when human children are kidnapped from their beds, and the Fae are blamed for their disappearance. 
    Hired as the public relations expert for the Others, Jezi Longtree is excited to help the paranormal community restore its image among humans. Her eagerness turns into intense aggravation when she meets her contact, Luke Skylord. As Sentinel for the region, the man is infuriating, arrogant—and sexy as hell. 
    Luke appreciates Jezebel’s creative talents immediately—as well as her luscious body. Determined to make the voluptuous redhead his temporary bedmate, his pursuit of the intriguing woman is relentless. When he finds himself on an unprecedented emotional roller coaster, Luke discovers there’s more to Jezebel than Double Ds. When the sparks fly between these two in the middle of a Human vs. Other race war, they are both singed by the outcome.
