How does the world end? With a bang? Or with a whimper? Will it be zombies? Will it be plague? Will it be forgotten gods or robots, vengeance on their minds? There are a multitude of ways in which the world could end.

Springing forth from the minds of the Talaria Press founders, And I Feel Fine presents eight all-new tales of calamity such as:

From H.L. Reasby comes Venture, a tale of alien invasion, birth and death.

Garth Reasby’s, Zombie Awake, gives us a new, horrifying element of the zombie trope which may change forever the way you view the genre.

In Acts of Reparation, Quiana Kirkland wonders what happens to the things we leave behind.

Ren Cummins undertakes our experiment from Geek Girl Con 2013, using an entirely crowdsourced setting, character, and events to bring us God’s Brownies.

This anthology also features the debut of Associate Author Martin Schiller, who brings us The 13th Hour, a tale of the plague which spawned the female dominated universe of his Sisterhood of Suns series.

Also included in this anthology are samples of other works by the Talaria Press founders, including excerpts of brand new series' by Ren Cummins and H.L. Reasby.
