Most of the writing was still powerful, but I was really looking forward to the continuation of the stories in the first volume, and while I think most were picked up here, some of these second chapters were a little disappointing. Maybe this is because the worlds and predicaments were necessarily not a surprise this time round, or maybe I wanted to see certain other aspects explored.
Still... Very highly recommended. Bring on the final volume!

Entertaining selectionReviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 January 2015
Entertaining selection of short stories by different authors including a number which, though stand alone, are also continuations of tales started in the companion book, The End is Niigh. Even though i read with enjoyment and await the final edition of the trilogy which is to be published later this year, there was not quite the same level of surprise which was a feature of it's predecessor, hence only four stars.
Good, different, thought provoking.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 September 2014
Very good, unusual short stories. I rather like that some authors have continued the tales from the first End is Nigh collections. Looking forward to the next part of the triptych.

One of the best short story collections I have ever readReviewed in Canada on 15 March 2015
Every story in this collection was an 8 or better. A lot of times you'll find a few good stories with a bunch of 5s or worse. Not here...this series is excellent and well recommended. Now I have to find book one.
