It's Not the End by Matt Moore
“Moore is a gardener of nightmares, artlessly turning over the dark soil in which the horrors that entangle ordinary people in their killing grasp bloom” (Michael Rowe, award-winning author of October).
All these worlds, and more, await you . . .
Only able to recall the memories of others, a ghost must solve the mystery of his own death. The zombie apocalypse is the gateway to a higher human consciousness. An amusement park of the future might turn you into the attraction. An engineer-turned-mercenary races to kill the savior of mankind. After the sky falls, can anyone still hope?
Twenty-one horror and science fiction tales of the bizarre, the terrifying, the all-too-near future.
“Subtle power, intelligence, and humanity are the hallmarks of Moore’s work. These stories are apt to stick in your mind like quills. They did in mine.”—Nick Cutter, national bestselling author of The Troop
“Moore takes us on a multitude of wild rides. If there is one thing I can say about these, it’s that they are action-packed . . . Moore is also very good at wrenching emotion out of his readers, whether abject horror or discomfort, the effect is visceral and real.” —The Ottawa Review of Books
“Like the best science fiction or horror writers out there, Moore’s talent doesn’t stop at combining the everyday with the speculative—the real magic is his character work.” —Black Gate
