Table of contents - "Defying Doomsday" edited by Tsana Dolichva and Holly Kench

Last year, I had the pleasure to host a guest post, “What Flavour of Apocalypse”, by Tsana Dolichva during the crowdfunding campaign for “Defying Doomsday”, an anthology she was about to edit together with Holly Kench. After the success of the said crowdfunding campaign the reading and selection process started and now we are moving one step closer to the publication of “Defying Doomsday” as Tsana Dolichva and Holly Kench revealed the stories chosen out of the 177 submitted tales for this apocalypse-survival anthology. “Defying Doomsday” is due to be released by Twelfth Planet Press in mid 2016.

Teens form an all-girl band in the face of an impending comet.

A woman faces giant spiders to collect silk and protect her family.

New friends take their radio show on the road in search of plague survivors.
A man seeks love in a fading world.
How would you survive the apocalypse?
Defying Doomsday is an anthology of apocalypse fiction featuring disabled and chronically ill protagonists, proving it’s not always the “fittest” who survive - it’s the most tenacious, stubborn, enduring and innovative characters who have the best chance of adapting when everything is lost.
In stories of fear, hope and survival, this anthology gives new perspectives on the end of the world, from authors Corinne Duyvis, Janet Edwards, Seanan McGuire, Tansy Rayner Roberts, Stephanie Gunn, Elinor Caiman Sands, Rivqa Rafael, Bogi Takács, John Chu, Maree Kimberley, Octavia Cade, Lauren E Mitchell, Thoraiya Dyer, Samantha Rich, and K Evangelista.
