Apocalypse-a-Day Desk Calendar, Volume 1 by Norman Prentiss

Destroying the World, One Day at a Time… In this eclectic assortment of flash fiction, Bram Stoker Award-winner Norman Prentiss concocts a different end-of-the-world scenario for each calendar day (Volume 1 covers January through March). The stories range from humorous to bizarre to unsettling, commemorating holiday and observance days (New Year’s or Valentine’s Day, National Pig Day), famous birthdays (Robert Frost, Charles Dickens), or notable historical events (the first computer…and the first computer virus). Other daily entries include a riff on the first (and only) golf game on the moon; and “The Milking of Elm Farm Ollie,” which reinvigorates an in-flight publicity stunt by adding apocalyptic results. Volume 1 includes more than 40,000 words of doomsday fiction, ready to be sampled in small doses just like the pages of those desk calendars you buy for 50%-off in February…or available all at once for your immediate binge-reading pleasure!
