New Release - Silence in the City: Stories of the Sudden End of the Modern World

Sudden disruptions in power and other major services sends a city into chaos. In the blink of an eye, the modern technological world fails. Is it a government plot? Experiment gone wrong? A foreign cyber attack? Alien invasion? A mystical incursion from beings beyond this dimension? Who knows? Now the noise and the bustle of the city has
vanished, and an eerie silence settles over the urban landscape. Within, there are stories of human violence, depravity, and desperation, but also heroism, selflessness, and sacrifice. Silence in the City is an anthology of speculative tales asking what happens when a city—and all of modern civilization—is plunged into darkness.

Includes short stories by Alex Shvartsman, David B. Coe, Dean Wesley Smith, John Michael Greer, Gini Koch, Kevin McLaughlin, D.A. D'Amico, Annie Reed, Joshua Palmatier, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Kirsten Cross, D.B. Keele, and Shaun Kilgore.
