From web site: “The People’s Apocalypse (LitStar Press) by Ariel Gore and Jenny Forrester is an anthology profiling those awaiting the end. They are survivalists, anarchists, environmentalists, visionaries, poets, zinesters, and Christian Fundamentalists. They’ve prepared by hoarding grain, reading scripture, raising chickens, and arming themselves. They’ve imagined zombies, a King Kong-sized Jesus, and post-civilization utopias. They are impatient. They are hopeful. And they are ready.”
