I love horror anthologies! Short stories can pack such a creepy scary punch.

All these stories have a Book Of Revelations theme and it was interesting to see all the different imaginings of the apocalypse by various authors.
Some are really creative, some are more concentrated on shock value and some are straight up funny.

This is such an excellent anthology with stories that mostly interconnected but kept to horrifying religious theme. With tales by Wrath James White, John Wayne Communal, Jeff Strand and the amazing Wile E. Young, this collection of hellacious apocalyptic stories should be on everyone's TBR.

My review of And Hell Followed: An Anthology can be found at High Fever Books.

If you believe the statistics, The Bible is allegedly the most widely read book in the world. Having sold millions upon millions and millions of copies and placed in thousands upon thousands of hotel room nightstands, it is easily one of the most popular, most published, and most purchased works of epic horror fantasy ever written. Even people who claim they don’t read horror presumably claim to have at least read The Bible. And make no mistake about it, The Bible is most certainly a work of horror, what with its mutilations, murders, plagues, infanticides, rapes, incest, demons, and apocalypses. This fucking book is head-high in horror and don’t let anybody tell you otherwise!

Beyond inspiring one of the world’s largest and richest cults, one built off bloodshed, Nazi gold, pedophilia, rape, torture, and murder, it’s hard to deny just how much of an influence The Bible has been for horror writers, providing a sandbox for authors of all stripes to play in, one richer than even Lovecraft’s mythos. Long before there was Cthulhu and a spate of other Elder Gods, there was the Christian God and Satan and the Book of Revelations.

It’s this latter sandbox particularly that the authors of And Hell Followed have gathered to stomp around in and kick up a storm. It says a lot that as a new independent, small press publisher, Death’s Head Press is opting to make their debut with a wonderfully heretical, no-holds barred horror anthology of sixteen different takes on the End of Days. As contributing author and atheist Wrath James White notes in his introduction to this volume, “Very few blasphemies were left unblasphemed.” Hell if that ain’t a fact!

Christine Morgan brings the blasphemy big-time in her story, “Censered,” about an angel denied the privilege of tooting a trumpet to signify the arrival of the apocalypse. Foul-mouthed and eager to voice his doubts on the legitimacy of scripture, he rightfully describes the historicity of the Bible as “sketchy as fuck” and mentions with a whiff of understatement that “the Lord God Almighty could be a real dick.”

“Censered” is a hilarious romp, and it was a truly pleasant surprise following a handful of more serious takes on God’s wrath. I had expected And Hell Followed to be thick with dark, gory horrors, but it also has a rich current of humor running throughout. I knew with Jeff Strand on the roster there would be at least one bit of comedic horror here, but it was a blessing to find a few other works aiming for laughter alongside Armageddon. Some are flat-out funny, like Morgan’s, and others are farcical, like Strand’s, who deftly balances wit with gross-out descriptions of a boil’s unending ejaculation of pus in “Outpouring,” and C. Derick Miller’s “Hell Paso,” which finds Private Dan Daniels on the run, with his superior officer in tow, after panicking and shooting Jesus Christ in the face. “How was I supposed to know Jesus was brown?” Daniels insists. “Sunday School told me he looked like bearded Ewan McGregor, not the reanimated corpse of Osama Bin Laden floating through the fucking sky!”

While I have no idea how many of Wrath’s fellow authors here are atheist, agnostic, irreligious, or anti-religious, a good number of the stories presented in And Hell Followed tilt neatly toward the skeptical end of the belief spectrum. Several contributors routinely call out the Bible’s many, many, many discrepancies, or use the Holy Book’s mythology as a launching pad for some out-of-the-box stories. “Apocalypse… Meh” by John Wayne Comunale gives us a look at the heavy metal scene post-Revelations. "Ham and Pudge” by K. Trap Jones also us gives a post-apocalyptic short, but this time from the viewpoint of a pair of rat-like creatures charged by Jesus Himself to clean up the battlefields and prep the Earth for God’s next not-so-Intelligent Design.

To be sure, there are plenty of serious stories playing it straight throughout, as well. While Revelations is an obvious basis for many of the stories within And Hell Followed, Chris Miller finds more than a bit of inspiration from The Who in his “Behind Blue Eyes,” as a man mourns the loss of his partner as the trumpets sound in sky. “The Whore of Babylon,” from Sam West, opens the anthology with a slight erotic charge as a novelist best known for his zombie books hooks up with a comely barfly. Wile E. Young’s “The Day and the Hour” is a flat-out terrific tale of a small group of survivors hiding from the four angels sicced upon Earth to destroy a third of mankind. Wrath James White puts his own spin on the horsemen of the apocalypse in “Horse.” Inspired by the actual Dark Alliance news reports on the CIA’s involvement in flooding the black neighborhoods of Los Angeles with cocaine, White posits a similar scenario as a new drug appears on the scene strong enough to make heroin obsolete.

While there were a few stories I didn’t care for, standard for just about any given anthology I’ve read, they were few and far between. The bulk of this book is seriously strong, the stories smartly organized and well-balanced against one another, and it’s a terrific anthology to not only ring in the New Year properly, but one that heralds the arrival of a new small press publisher to watch. Jam-packed with heretical horrors, And Hell Followed is the kind of book that makes you more than happy to say “Fuck church!” (presuming you’re the church-going kind to begin with…) so you can stay home and read. Trust me, this book a billion times better than any bloviating pastor’s service you’re likely to find. Swap out the Good Book for this even better book and give it a read right now, goddamnit. It’d be a sin not to!

Apocalypse Variety

This anthology contains a wide variety of how the world will end & what it will be like afterwards. Most were good. Behind blue eyes was the scariest and Apocalypse Meh was probably my favorite. But each story was original and creative. However, this will probably be the last time I read a collection about the end of the world. I think too much to have that on my mind!

I really wanted to love this anthology. It's biblical apocalyptic stories so the theme is the same across the board. However, there was just too much of the same kind of things throughout each story - which is fine amongst themselves but when reading back to back to back, it got to be a little bit oversaturated. Seems when hell comes to earth, it's gruesome, a lot of cussing, a lot of strange sex and private parts grabbing and heavy metal. I'm not opposed to ANY of this - usually the stranger, grosser and weirder the better.

Just like with all anthologies, there's a mixed bag - some are great, some not so much. I think this would've been better read a story at a time with a little break in between. Back to back just got a bit cumbersome really.

Not a bad bunch for hell on earth though. So go get biblical.

Anthologies can be mixed bags. You sometimes get the good, the bad, and the dreadful. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of most of this book. Stories stayed on theme and were a delight to read. I REALLY enjoyed this book.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advance copy of what will be imo the most talked about Anthology of 2019. 15 of the 16 stories in this book would normally be the best story in most Anthologies only one what I consider to be an average story. If this is the Future of Death’s Head Press they will be the go Too publisher in the Horror genre.
From what would be the normal the stories in this volume......, to the last word of Jeff Strand’s Outpouring this book grabs you by the balls and doesn’t let go.

Award Winner, this one is

So, I picked this up on a lark when it was first released and tossed (who am I kidding, gently placed) on my TBR pile forever. My bad. Loved all the stories and the different ways they approached the subject matter. Highly recommend.

AND HELL FOLLOWED is the first book from the new publisher Death's Head Press. They have pulled together an amazing group of authors who have all written short stories based on events from the Book of Revelations. Stories range from the first horn blast and the Horsemen to the final day and everything in-between. It can be read as a sort of primer as what and what not to do to survive during the Apocalypse.

Let's take a look at what's inside.....


A horror author meets a mysterious woman in a bar and learns he may have unknowingly contributed to a coming apocalypse.

BEHIND BLUE EYES by Chris Miller

Jack has just lost the love of his life. But he has no time to mourn as he hears the first trumpet blast.

This story is one of my favorites of the collection. Such a frightening and grisly view of the beginning of the end.

CENSERED by Christine Morgan

One of the lighter tales in the book. A rebel angel in God's court is very upset in his role in the planning of the apocalypse.


Four survivors during the end-time must now face the 6th trumpet blast and the horrors it unleashes.

THE OLD MAN AND THE LAMB by Patrick C. Harrison III

In a land ruled by the church, an old man encounters what could be the catalyst to the further destruction of the world.

APOCALYPSE... MEH by John Wayne Comunale

The apocalypse has come and it is not quite what people expected.

FALLEN by James Watts

175 years after the horseman's ride, one fallen angel meets a man who is connected to his death as a child centuries ago.

GODLESS WORLD by Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason

Four girls trying to survive during the end time. A video game and a promise keep them together.

This is a great little story. The Sisters of Slaughter give us a tale full of action and beasties, but still give the story a heart.

HAM AND PUDGE by K. Trap Jones

The story of two creatures, created by God to scavenge the site of the last battle between Satan and Jesus.

This story is just brimming with dark, dark humor and one of the best donkeys ever.

HORSE by Wrath James White

Could a new designer drug called Horse be the beginning of the Apocalypse? A drug dealer learns the truth as he tries to make his way home.

HELL PASO by C. Derick Miller

A portal has opened at the Mexican/American border and all Hell is coming through it. Two soldiers try to survive after one fires a shot that has just changed some very important preordained events.


A man with the ability to see angels and then eat them for their powers gathers followers to teach them his ways and to prepare for the coming of demons.


Chips implanted in your body keep a running score of your life or social merit. Say or do the wrong thing and your score could drop and have very serious consequences. Two teens decide to change their lives and leave the city and their families behind, and say goodbye to the Six Degrees.

Another favorite in this collection. The mixing of the Mark of the Beast with technology was handled well. Read like a mix of Orwell's 1984 and the Black Mirror episode Nosedive.

THE UNVEILING by Hyane Sawbones

A wife and mother, distraught from the sudden death of her husband gives birth to a boy who may be something much darker.

MARK OF THE BEAST by Richard Raven

Something is wrong at Antioch Baptist Church, and the new Pastor seems to be the center of it.

OUTPOURING by Jeff Strand

Caleb awoke with a terrible sore on his back. Who would have thought the End could begin in a little apartment.

I have to say I really enjoyed this anthology. I have always been interested in stories about Revelations. Starting back in Catholic grade school when the nuns would use it in ways to scare the crap out of us kids. As with any anthology some stories are better than others, but none will leave you feeling disappointed. I would recommend this book to everyone.

Death's Head Press has put together a very impressive collection for a first time publisher. I can't wait to see what they have in store for us in the future.

The End is Nigh! Pick up this book before it's too late.

Interesting collection

An interesting read for doomsday apocalypse fans. The stories were all different, ranging from the macabre to unexpectedly funny. I intend to read more books from these publishers.

Decent anthology about reimagined biblical apocalypse stories. Half of the stories were good. The rest were kind of bland for me. Highlights include stories by Sam West, Patrick Harrison, John Wayne Communale, Jeff Strand, and my personal favorite was Godless World by The Sisters of Slaughter. If biblical apocalyptic stories are your thing I recommend giving this one a shot.

Wow, this was an interesting, fantastic anthology of stories. The type to be read over and over again.
From the first page, I was drawn in, and didn't stop until the end. Well worth the time, and five stars.

I read this book with some other members of the Splatterclub on Facebook. This is some thoughts I posted on the stories as I read them.

Sam West's The Whore of Babylon was a nice start to the anthology.

Behind Blue Eyes by Chris Miller was a pretty good story, lots of nice imagery. That was the first thing I've read by him, I would read some more.

Censered by Christine Morgan was more like my jam. A foul mouthed angel, kinda made me think of something Ed Lee would do!

The Day and the Hour by Wile E. Young was quite good, I like a good post apocalyptic story and it's obvious the end times would be rife with them, but this is the first one in the collection, so that surprised me a bit.

The Old Man and The Lamb by Patrick C Harrison 3 was an incredibly well written story. I kept wondering where it was going and I was not disappointed! This is a contender for favorite story, so far.

Apocalypse...Meh by John Wayne Comunale was my kind of Apocalypse! I definitely would have been banging my head to Judas! Very funny and very original.

Fallen by James Watts was an interesting story. I figured what was up with the main character early on but was thrown for a loop in the middle of the story. The writing was very good, it seems like it could be a smaller part of a bigger story.

Godless World by the Sisters of Slaughter, Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason was another good post apocalyptic tale. The Sisters always deliver strong stories, and this one was no different.

K.Trap Jones Ham and Pudge was pretty entertaining. Like Christine Morgan's Censered, this was my kind of story. Actually, I couldn't help thinking this seemed like something I would write Haha. I might just have to add him to the list of authors books I need to check out.

I had been looking forward to Wrath James Whites Horse, and I was not disappointed. I'd say, compared to the other stories, this one was stretching it a bit to fit the theme. But, it was a very cool story, so I'll allow it!

Hell Paso by C. Derick Miller may have the best beginning of all the stories. This one was imaginative and pretty funny. Another well written story by an author that's new to me.

I really dug Mark Deloy's Cult of Angel Eaters, I could see it filled out and made into a novella, if not a whole book. The only thing was it didn't really pertain to the whole book of revelations theme, just had some Angel's and demons in it.

Delphine Quinn's Six Degrees of Seperation was a very cool, almost sci fi story. I suppose this was meant to take place after the rapture, but the use of an almost utopian society made me forget that it had anything to do with the end of times. This was another one I could see expanded in a much larger tale.

Hyäne Sawbones The Unveiling was an interesting story. The whole time I kept expecting some Hellraiser part 5 switch-a-roo where we find out they were in Hell the entire time Haha. It was a cool story though.

Mark of The Beast by Richard Raven was a nice return to the second coming type stories that started the anthology.

I've been thinking about checking out some Jeff Strand for a bit now, and after reading his story Outpouring I think I'll definitely do that.

Overall it was pretty good. There were definitely some people that I would read stories from again. I found this to be a pretty solid anthology, which is unusual I think. My only complaint, and this is something that happens with my books too, is that I feel like it could benefit from another good round of proofreading. Other than that, good work Deaths Head Press!

First thought? Woah, this is going to be a gruesome collection!

Then I stopped thinking because I was completely enthralled by the end of the first story! When I discovered that each tale was connected in that it was another perspective of the same event, or the aftermath, I was overjoyed! You see, I don’t particularly like anthologies. I don’t mind novellas, but short stories generally leave me wanting. This was NOT the case for And Hell Followed. Because each story seemed to tie in together, I felt like I was reading a novel. One written in MPV, and it was just brilliant.

As gory and terrifying as the tales were, they were also penned by brilliant writers, who all know how to collectively drill into our psyches, tap into our worst nightmares. To me, that is great horror no matter how it is presented.

I’m not going to specifically name stories because for the most part, I loved them all. There were two that I didn’t care for however because they didn’t seem to fit the overall style. Maybe it’s just a matter of personal taste but I think when you read this anthology, they may stand out to other readers as well.
As a whole, I loved this collection, and if more anthologies were written like this, then I would start happily reading them more often.
This would have been 5 star read but I am deducting just a fraction of a star because of the two stories I didn’t like. Seriously though, if you are a fan of horror/ dystopian and like it with a side of horrific and bloody allegory, you’re going to love this book!

Overall okay. Some of it was just plain ridiculous and seemed an excuse to write a bunch of mayhem but there were a couple of good ones. A lot of the same stuff...

Here per story:

The Whore of Babylon by Sam West
3 star. Interesting enough. Very short so not much to it. Makes ya cringe if ya think about it too much...

Behind Blue Eyes by Chris Miller
2 star. There really wasn't much to this. Just a bunch of chaos, destruction, gore and guilt. Really did not like the reason for Jack's guilt. I get it and I know it's happened in real life but I have a lot of problems with it. Very grotesque with Rachel. Props for that. Can't imagine (and don't really want to) witnessing all that...

Censered by Christine Morgan
2 star. Had a lot of potential and I was very disappointed. Fun and interesting idea but did not like the execution. Spoiled child getting his way. So much unnecessary swearing (and I really don't care about that but it just took attention away from the story here). Coulda been funny.

The Day and the Hour by Wile E. Young
3 star. Interesting take. This is one I would have liked more story of actually. It's fine how it is. Just got me curious.

The Old Man and the Lamb by Patrick C. Harrison III
3 star.  I woulda said that the apocalypse had already begun but I get it, lol. It's crazy what happens in the name of religion and this world doesn't seem too crazy cuz of that.

Apocalypse... Meh by John Wayne Comunale
1 star. Only remotely redeeming aspect of this is that I like rock... That is all.

Fallen by James Watts
3 star. Woulda been better if I'd been able to read it straight through but wouldn't have changed the rating. Liked the idea behind this one and the bit of twist.

Godless world by Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason
3 star. Was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Ham and Pudge by K. Trap Jones
1 star. Just no. Nope, nope. Noo. Too bad. I could have gotten behind the premise.

Horse by Wrath James White
3 star. Interesting take. More modern way of doing it. Would be awful to be apart. I liked how it ended (we can assume) but also am curious...

Hell Paso by C. Derick Miller
2 star. Had some promise in the beginning...

Cult of the Angel Eaters by Mark Deloy
4 star. Great short story. Truly appreciated the ending.

Six Degrees of Separation by Delphine Quinn
4 star. Could definitely see this happening... Ouch for the ending!

The Unveiling by Cody Higgins
1 star. This was extremely hard to pay attention to. It is soo wordy! It also randomly jumps from one POV to the next and same with time.

Mark of the Beast by Richard Raven
4 star. I would have actually liked to see more of this and how it is resolved.

Outpouring by Jeff Strand
3 star. Pretty amusing actually.

The was a really good set of Revelations based apocalyptic shorts. I enjoyed the fact that the stories were all based around the same concept, with drastically different takes on it. As with most anthologies, there were a few stories in here that i couldn't get into and a few I found downright corny. However, there were some incredibly good stories here as well. The first two stories right off are two of my favorites, The Whore of Babylon by Sam West and Chris Miller's Behind Blue Eyes were both fascinating. Also, the stories by Wrath James Wright, Delphine Quinn, Christine Morgan, Mark Deloy and Jeff Strand really stood out. And props to K. Trap Jones for Ham and Pudge, that story was just funny!

Pretty unremarkable compilation of stories. I'd skip all but Strand's.

But a note on the introduction which says Revelation is a book of fantasy. Anyone who has studied the Bible seriously, as well as the historical context at this time, can clearly see that Revelation was a book written to 1st Century churches to remind them that no matter how big and powerful the Roman Empire seemed it would wither and fade. But God's Kingdom is eternal. The author, most likely John Eliazar (Jesus' friend Lazarus as mentioned in the Gospel of John) is simply encouraging then to keep their faith strong and that there is a larger reality than what they immediately see.

So there's a large amount of ignorance by the editor there, but at the same time the goofy interpretation of Revelation by the editor certainly leads to more fun stories.

And while these are fun, they really aren't all that great

Pretty strong collection

I'm usually a little leery of anthologies I find on Kindle Unlimited because they're mostly scraped from Reddit or just terrible. That does not seem to be the case here, however, as both the selection and the intro from the editor explaining why he collected these were very strong. Anyone scarred by a religious upbringing that threatened hellfire when you were bad or the imminent apocalypse if you were good will find this enjoyable. There is one story that's pretentious to the point that it affected by enjoyment of the entire book ( you'll know which one I mean when you read it), but other than that this was a really fun collection.

What a gathering of Horror Authors! The Apocalyptic Tales, shoot, they're all good on each authors. All the stories captivated me, I was glued and read this book in one sitting! I was elated to spend time on a refreshing book. I recommend it to all, its nail biting good! One-click now, you'll be glad you did.

We need more Biblical-themed horror collections like this

Overall, an entertaining read. Even the couple of stories whose writing was less strong had good enough premises to see them through. I'm glad I took a chance on this; not only for some good storytelling, but to find new writers to explore.

I wanted to like this anthology but I got about 17% of the way in and stopped. The first three stories did not grab me at all so I put it aside.

Maybe I'll pick it up again and check out the rest of them later.

This anthology, published by Death's Head Press, features stories inspired by the Apocalypse described in the Book of Revelation. Like the typical horror collection, a couple of the stories were great, some were good, and several were so-so. The collection also contains one of the worse short stories that I've ever read. One standout was "Horse" by splatterpunk luminary Wrath James White, about a drug called horse that immediately enrages users and escalates their worst prejudices. "Outpouring" by comedy writer Jeff Strand focuses on a back sore that won't stop spewing pus. Another story describes post-apocalyptic heavy metal bands. The protagonist finds an interesting way to contribute to live performances—wonderfully juvenile and entertaining.

Not so good.

Some of the stories were ok and entertaining, but for the most part were weak. I hope a #2 book will be more engaging.
