This book was a magical find, first of all because it is so hard to get your hands on a copy and second because there are so many shorts from the All Time Masters of Sci-Fi. Plus, who doesnt love a good old end of the world story? Great midnight reading!

The Nine Billion Names of God by Arthur C. Clarke - What if someone really discovered the key to the end of the world and how to unlock it?

Killing the Morrow by Robert Reed - bizarre family tale of strangers forced together to nurture delivered embryos in their bathtubs.

You Can Get Them Wholesale by Neil Gaimen - be careful what you ask for...

Fire Catcher by Richard Kadrey - Whose finger is really on the button?

Not with a Bang by Howard Fast - What if you knew for a fact the sun would never rise again?

Lost and Found by Connie Willis - bizarre twist on the search for the Holy Grail

The Wind and the Rain by Robert Silverberg - Long after pollution suffocates and kills off earth, people from other planets will take tours of the destruction left behind.

The Year of the Jackpot by Robert A Heinlein - Potiphar Breen has been studying the cycles of the earth, not the seasons but more the human lemming cycles as the earth strives to cleanse itself. Can you plot against the end of the world? Will you be able to escape it or hide from it?

Expendable by Philip K. Dick - If insects could talk and you could hear them, would you really want to know what their plots were?

Finis by Frank L. Pollack - A new sun is born and its warming light reaches the earth. Is it too warm?

A Guide to Virtual Death by J.G. Ballard - Futuristic TV Guide

Emissary from a Green and Yellow World by Robert Sheckley - If another race from another planet really did want to help us earthlings out, would we believe them?

The Portable Phonograph by Walter Van Tilburg Clark - When the only comfort left is doled out from a battery operated phonograph.

Fermi and Frost by Frederik Pohl - As the bombs fall a prestigious doctor is offered a seat on an escape flight, and takes a sick, orphaned young boy with him.

Ultimate Construction by C.C. Shackleton - Who will the last man on earth be?

The Manhattan Phone Book (Abridged) by John Varley - Were you in New York City when the bombs fell?

The Man Who Walked Home by James Tiptree, Jr. - An accident at a Particle Acceleration Facility causes a man to start walking home, but in what dimension does he walk and how long will it really take him?

Interview With A Lemming by James Thurber - What would these furry creatures have to say?

The Last Question by Isaac Asimov - Can entropy be reversed? Mans best computer evolves as it contemplates this question for over 100 billion years.
