I'm giving it three and a half stars. Some stories I really liked and others I didn't care as much for. All were professionally written and I imagine other readers might well like different stories than I did. This is something of a kitchen sink collection in regards to the overall tone. Although all feature some doomsday scenario, some are deadly series while others are tongue in cheek. I tend to prefer the more serious ones and am a hard sell for humor, but others might like those stories.

An interesting collection of authors all writing their version of a final battle.

This an anthology of original stories, most of whom were most identified with Baen publishing. It's a little uneven in quality and unsure in theme; some introductory matter would have been beneficial. As the jacket proclaims, the world can end with a bang, a whimper, and a belly laugh.

I liked only 3 stories from this collection, but even those were not particularly compelling.
