In the great cosmic lottery of extinction level events, Earth is about to hit a double jackpot. Join the adventure as the only home humankind has ever known is hurtling towards disaster.
The Eschaton Tales is a series of standalone science fiction short stories with a common theme: the imminent end of the world as we know it. All stories can be enjoyed individually and out of context, but together they reveal a bigger picture. Vol.1 contains the following stories:
1.1 The Burst
The Conways are a happy little family like millions of others; maybe even a little happier than most. Life presents its challenges as it always does, but by and large, things are good—until on a calm spring night in 2079 it turns out the fault is quite literally in their stars.
1.2 Dixon Can Do
With disaster looming in the dark and a bunch of clueless advisors at hand, maybe it takes a mad scientist to encourage the leader of the free world to boldly go wherever humanity’s future lies.
Huxley is only twenty-two years old when he stumbles upon two of the most important discoveries he’ll ever make. One will change his life. The other will change the world.
