15.4 - The World Without End
Read TWO books, one from Book 1 AND one from Book 2.
Book 1: The Mayans predicted that the world would end in December 2012. You may have discovered that we're still here! Let's celebrate by reading a book that was first published in December 2012 or any time afterward.
Book 2: Doomsday-smoomsday. Read a book with the genre "Post-Apocalyptic" or "Dystopia" on its main page. Reasonable variations of these genres will also be accepted (ex: Apocalyptic, Dying Earth, etc).
OR
Read ONE book that fulfills both Book 1 and Book 2 requirements.

Sorry, Meg, it's fallen off the first page of genres for now.

Genres
Science Fiction 159 users
Fiction 51 users
Science Fiction Fantasy 13 users
Science Fiction > Space Opera 11 users
Space 8 users
Speculative Fiction 8 users

Check back later in the challenge, though, genres have a habit of disappearing/reappearing. When you see it, just repost here or in the genre verification thread and we'll try to catch it.

Either of these would work for Book 2 of the TWO book option because the genre is there.

They won't work for the one book option, though. For that option, the book needs to be "first published in December 2012 or any time afterward." Shadows was first published January 1st 2012 and Night Forbidden was first published July 31st 2012 both of these dates are before December 2012. For the two book option, you need something first published in or after December 2012.

Megan Anderson (ms_anderson) | 1481 comments Lazarus, Vol. 1: Family

In THEORY the genre listing should be okay, but just in case...

Also, published in October 2013, so it ought to work for the one-book option.
