A trio of authors - Andrew Charles Lark, Donald Levin, and Wendy Sura Thomson - produced this dystopian anthology.
Andrew Lark’s “Pollen” is a riveting, multiple point-of-view account of a strange atmospheric phenomenon that destroys humankind’s ability to reproduce, ushering in the extinction of our species.
Donald Levin’s “The Bright and Darkened Lands of the Earth” is a gripping tale set in a desperate, post-apocalyptic future where a heroic woman battles ecological and social collapse in an effort to save her tribe—and humanity—from certain annihilation.
Wendy Sura Thomson’s “Silo Six” is a suspenseful story of love and survival set far into the future, when the sun begins its transformation into a red giant and scorches the earth into a virtually uninhabitable cinder.
Wendy Sura Thomson is a 5-star author of Summon the Tiger, The Third Order, and Postcards from the Future (as a contributing author.) She has several more works underway. She lives in Michigan with her two beloved Irish Setters and covets sipping coffee outdoors first thing in the morning, rain or shine., listening to the waterfall and the birds and watching [often with amusement] the pups explore.
Take three published authors and present a premise: imagine the end of humanity. The three have taken different roads; different times, different circumstances... but the one thing they have in common: the stories are thought-provoking and riveting. And although the three didn't compare notes, all three share the integral importance of the written word.
Postcards From the Future
It was May, 2069 - five years now, and I remember it like it was yesterday because I woke up feeling absolutely incredible, and by that I mean… euphoric. I opened my eyes and literally felt euphoric, and I can safely say that that’s never happened to me before - ever. I was 48, not in very good shape, and had more than my share of the requisite aches and pains for a guy my age: throbs, creaky joints, warning signs… you know… but that morning, nothing – no pain, no anxiety, no mortal pangs.
