Publisher's Summary

The world has fallen, but life goes on…

In the late 2020s and early 30s, corporations managed to render the major governments of the world obsolete. The big corporations owned most of the territories as well as the majority of the world’s wealth. While many of the old traditions were still observed in various parts of the world, the true power was with the corporations.

In the late 30s, what would be known as the Corporate Wars began as larger companies initiated hostile takeovers in a whole new fashion. Employees, armed with corporate weapons, warred for dominance. It was a bloody time, and many small corporations were destroyed, as were a lot of civilians in the wrong place at the wrong time…and those who’d been buying the wrong products.

On May 1st, 2067, it all ended in nuclear fire.

Sixteen outstanding authors have come to this Fallen World with stories that take place from the islands off the coast of Washington to the plains of central Europe; from the swamps of Florida to the streets of Philadelphia. These stories document the fall and introduce you to people who might just drag civilization back from the ashes.

With stories by Chris Kennedy, Brisco Woods, Jamie Ibson, David Carrico, Kevin Steverson, Philip S. Bolger, Joseph Capdepon II, Alex Rath, David Alan Jones, Derek Shupert, Ian J.Malone, Jan Kotouc, Jon R. Osborne, Mark Wandrey, Marisa Wolf and Christopher Woods.

Incomplete stories

Enjoyed the first and second books. Having several authors and incomplete stories was very disappointing and irritating. Now I'm scared to listen to the rest of the series.

rather disappointing

if it was not for the fact that the first two books in this series were included with my subscription, I would have returned this one, rather than pay for it. I enjoy Christopher Woods's writing, but many of the short stories were pretty awful. it was almost as though some community college creative writing class had a contest and these were the winners. while a few weren't as bad, if some of these were considered the ones worthy of publication, I feel great pity for the poor slob who had to read through the ones that didn't make the cut!

Wow This Got Badddd Quick

This is a collection of short stories from different writers some still about our hero, and others the range of whatever. They go back and forth in time, place, circumstance, and ugh. To make it worse they don’t fit together with the overall story. Each one gets worse and you keep looking at how many hours you still have to suffer through. I gave up with over seven hours left. It's Bad.

I would return this book for a refund but the first two were free and I enjoyed them so this is my payment to the writer.

Swing and a miss

Loved the first 2 so much I was ready to sell some property and buy the whole set. Ended up skipping through some stories entirely. I’ll try the next volume before I give up. Chris woods is on point. Maybe that’s why they saved his story until last...

Not my normal genre but I like it

As long as you ignore the trite “in the fallen world” and similar inserts, this whole series is ridiculously good. Like, really good. And I have never liked post-apocalyptic genre books before.

Enjoyable collection

It would be fantastic if many of these stories are made into full length books.
Actually, I would love to read guild leader Theresa Minora story.

different

wasn't what I was expecting but I really enjoyed it. having lots of small story's that are different but follow simular lines was a good idea.
