    1. I got the ARC for this in exchange for a review (and now I've bought the book for 6 other people :-P). Apocalyptic and dystopian fiction comprises the bulk of what I read, I love animals, and I'm a huge fan of projects that try to help others. (In this case, through the end of the year they'll donate $1 per book purchase to Pets for Vets). When Chris Pourteau told me about this animal-themed anthology I thought "HELL YEAH!"This was promptly followed by "Oh shit." Why? Because I am a big softie. [...]

    2. This book is full of short stories about animals and their people dealing with the aftermath of an apocalypse. It features stories about dogs, cats, birds, and bats. Try and find a copy.

    3. I am a grateful thrilled ARC reader of "The Tails of The Apocalypse", which I was sad to have finished several nights ago. Sad, because the authors and editor did such a marvelous job, their artistic talents gave me a LOT to consider."The Water Finder's Shadow" - by David Bruns was a beautiful, sweet and endearing story. Within it I found myself longing to go outside and try my own hand at dowsing, something I witnessed being done by relatives when young and was told that I Could do it, too, if [...]

    4. For all animal lovers It actually turns out Animals have their own Apocalypse stories to tell From the get go I was drawn into the book as I was drawn into each animals story It's a storybook of heroic critters, I say this because there are cats, dogs, birds, wolves and even a fierce mamma bear gets involved You'll find stories of unconditional love You'll find stories that will make your heart sing and some that will make you cry I guarantee that whatever you find in this book you will not be a [...]

    5. It’s a fact well known to animal lovers that pets enrich our lives in ways people often cannot. The beloved animals who take up residence in our hearts love us unconditionally, and we love them the same. Which makes it all the more strange that animal companions are rarely depicted as part of our recent collective obsession with dystopian and apocalyptic media. Think about it: Many of pop-culture’s most celebrated disaster franchises treat animals as little more than a potential source of fo [...]

    6. This is a wonderful collection of stories. The animals featured are not all pets, resulting in a nicely diverse selection of tales. The human characters and settings vary widely as well. Each story follows the general theme, portraying animals and their differing relationships with humans in drastically altered societies of the future. In any anthology, there are usually a couple of great stories, and the remaining selections I like, or not, to different degrees. In this case, I enjoyed every st [...]

    7. This is fourteen short stories about animals in a dystopian, post apocalyptic worlds, all written by awesome writers, in which part of the proceeds of each book will go to Pets for Vets, so please what is not to love? These are amazing stories, yes I will be up front, sometimes the animal dies, but it is worth it, being a veteran myself and helping with the working dogs on my base may have skewed my perspective a little on how much I feel and love the way these animals interact with the human as [...]

    8. A wonderful book, full of tales of heroes, heartbreak and love.The stories are all really well written, some so sad they made me cry. Others had me cheering them on, hoping that there would be a happy ending for these incredible animals.My favourite story was Protector by Stefan Bolz, it was so intense and full of love.*This was an ARC. My opinions are my own*

    9. Don't be fooled by the title, this a fantastic collection!Don't be fooled by the title, this a fantastic collection!I received an ARC version of this book in exchange for an honest review.I have a wonderful review, and an honestly nagging complaint. So, first the reviewI love animals, but not like some people lovelovelove animals. So I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. First let me say I was overwhelmingly surprised, in a good way. Each story is varied, from points of view that are appropri [...]

    10. It’s been such a long time since I’ve read any fiction from an animal’s perspective, and of those, only Watership Down and Tailchaser’s Song come to mind. So it was with some trepidation that I picked up Tails of the Apocalypse. After all, it has to be pretty hard to write fiction with animals either central to the plot or the main characters outright. Right? Maybe for me that’d be true, but not for the authors involved in the project. I found myself cheering or even holding my breath [...]

    11. Nobility, Self-Sacrifice & Unconditional Love.Yes, these themes are oh so true for this wonderful anthology of short stories. Personally, Michael Bunker, Nick Cole, Hank Garner, E.E. Giorgi & Chris Pourteau's blew me away!But, I would highlight Stefan Bolz's short story Protector as being my favorite of the whole collection ! Unbelievable emotional, very special & tearful. (Watch out folks!)I highly & wholly recommend this book to everyone and thank Chris Pourteau for the huge ef [...]

    12. I'm still making my way through these amazing tails! I need a box of tissues, so I'm pacing myself. You'll get invested in these stories, so be warned, keep the Kleenex near by.

    13. Gifted copy for honest review.What an awesome book. The stories were heart warming and well written. I have to say the authors who wrote this were great. Thanks so much for the great stories.

    14. I was given a copy of this anthology in exchange for an honest review.This anthology made me hug my dog. She then looked at me weird and fell back to sleep with a sigh. Because she loves me no matter what I do. The way that animals, especially pets, make us feel is somehow deeper than our connection to human characters in books. This may not always be the case, but this is the first time I have cried so many times reading an anthology. I’ve truly never thought about what could happen to our pe [...]

    15. As an animal lover and employee of a Veterinary Hospital this anthology hits the mark.I enjoyed the uniqueness of each authors contribution.The stories that impacted me the most were The Water Finders Shadow by David Bruns,Tomorrow Found by Nick Cole and Unconditional by Chris Pourteau. This collection expertly expresses the beautiful and wonderful way that animals impact our lives.I recommend this book to animal lovers and any fan of the post-apocalyptic genre.The added benefit of $1.00 from ea [...]

    16. There is laughter, there is heartache, told with warmth in 14 fascinating "tails". I shed more than a few tears ( but I have allergies ). Also a $1.00 donation is being made to Pets for Vets for every sale. Such a worthy cause.

    17. I received an ARC eBook in exchange for an honest review, Once I had finished reading I then placed a pre-order and that came this morning, the day of the eBook release, So, it is no surprise that I have given this collection of 14 stories a 5 star rating. I especially love books that speak to me personally in one way or another. That is not a requirement, just a bonus. I am also a "Dog" person, I tolerate Cats, but that is as far as it goes. However, the story in this collection that keeps comi [...]

    18. Tails of the Apocalypse is a great collections of short stories from a collection of authors all tasked with writing stories of pets and their owners in different apocalypse settings. These books cover a vast array of disasters, circumstances, and trials while showing how man's best friend, or other pet was a help or comfort through the troubled times.I really enjoyed the unique perspective that each author brought to the table and it was really fun to see how when tasked with a single scenario [...]

    19. I must admit up front that when a friend recommended this book, I was distracted and totally missed the fact that "Tails" was not actually "Tales" as I originally thought. So imagine my surprise when I dived into the book and discovered that each of these 14 completely unique stories revolves around an animal. Whether beloved furry companion, feathered friend or spirit animal, each story reveals a different view of humanity after the apocalypse and our relationship to the other creatures that sh [...]

    20. This anthology was every bit as good as I suspected it would be. Each story kept me interested and turning pages with enthusiasm, and I didn't want to put it down each time I picked it up. Edward R. Robertson’s “When You Open the Cages for Those Who Can’t” turned me into a fan, and I look forward to reading more of his works. Another that caught me by surprise was Deirdre Gould’s “Pet Shop.” When I started reading it, I really didn't think I would enjoy the story, but it turned out [...]

    21. I was delighted to be an ARC reader for this truly thoughtful and intriguing collection of short stories. The collaboration of great writers really hit the mark, and kept me wanting to read more of their work.Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy to read, it will brighten your day and spirits for sure!

    22. A completely different take on the post-apoc genre. A very different take on storytelling, and one that I ended up enjoying very much. Lots of gems by many of my favorite authors. I'm hoping for a second volume!

    23. Apocalypse stories with animals some stories were better than others but overall I enjoyed reading it.

    24. It takes me a long to process good stories and sort out my thoughts. What do other book buyers need to know, short of “BUY THIS!”--?The need to explain why, to talk about these stories, compels me to expand on that.Normally I am not drawn to tales of a post-apocalyptic earth, but "The Tails of The Apocalypse” (love the pun!) has a new twist: narrating from an animal’s point of view.“When I thought about what the end of the world would bring,” Edward W. Robertson writes as a post-scri [...]

    25. Short stories are the new rock n' roll, and anthologies are the new mix tapes. A huge number of new scifi anthologies are now appearing regularly on bestseller lists, and while the more popular feature the same old faces from the exclusive Trad Pub Club, authors from the indie community have begun to publish their own anthologies with great success. The key of course, is quality, originality and decent production values.The latest, compiled and edited by author Chris Pourteau, is Tails Of The A [...]

    26. There are so many books and stories about an apocalypse - with every book having its own idea on what the apocalypse will be - but not many books mention our four-legged or winged friends. When you think about this, it's strange, since I know so many people who consider their pets to be family members, but it's almost as if the world has come to the conclusion that pets will all be lost, or forgotten, when the zombies arrive or the world ends.Tails of the Apocalypse takes the opposite approach, [...]

    27. The authors of these stories were largely unknown to me, and many have written stories that fit into their established post-apocalypse worlds. The introductions give a good idea of what the rest of their work might be like, and at least four authors I’d like to follow-up. That in itself is praise for the stories, but really, there isn’t a dud in them, and most of them are heart warming and heart breaking stories, that anyone who has ever loved an animal will enjoy – and relive the pain of [...]
