Dramatic, tragic, exhilarating, and transcendent, the provocative stories in this volume offer thrilling accounts of global catastrophes, natural disasters, science run amok, and shocking cataclysms as only the most imaginative writers could conceive.Stories include:Darkness by Lord ByronFor the Akhoond by Ambrose BierceThe Star by H.G. WellsThe Last Days of Earth by George C. WallisFinis by Frank Lillie PollockThe Scarlet Plague by Jack London'the Poison Belt by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
