We are born fearing the dark, or at least, what lives in the dark, the things with teeth and fangs and blood on their breath.
And now, darkness is falling--in the city; in the country; around the globe; in the universe. It's the end of the Mayan Long Count. It's the zombie apocalypse. It's an extinction event. It's … well, does it really matter what it is? It's … over.
And what will be left when all is lost? Will there be love? A feeling of déjà vu? A sense of relief? An overriding instinct for survival in the face of an indifferent Fate?
What lessons have we learned? What legacy will we leave behind when night falls forever?
Is anyone listening? Is anyone watching? Will there be anyone, or anything, left to bear witness when the last light fails?
Dark Valentine Press presents Nightfalls: Notes from the end of the world, a charity anthology in which twenty-nine writers from three different countries present their unique visions of the end of the world in half a dozen genres. These short stories run the gamut from hilarious to heart-breaking, with stops at all the emotions in between.
