Recently published: Rebuilding Tomorrow, the follow up to this award winning set of stories celebrating diversity in fiction.

How would YOU survive the apocalypse?

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.

Defying Doomsday stories give new perspectives on the end of the world. Featuring disabled and chronically ill protagonists, these stories of fear, hope and survival show 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.

How well are you prepared to survive the end of the world?

"These are stories of survivors banding together, of supporting one another by combining strengths to reduce weaknesses." - Daniel Haeusser, Skiffy and Fanty
