Expiration Date



Expiration Date Modern lives seem littered with expiration dates Packaging tells us when our food will go bad when we can expect appliances to cease functioning when contracts for the internet finish But as annoying as these small expiration dates are, they fade to nothing compared to the larger events when a species goes extinct when a body of water evaporates, or dies because the PH balance alters when giant icebergs break apart and glaciers melt forever, threatening the ecosystem of this planet.Nancy Kilpatrick has gathered together twenty five original stories by Kelley Armstrong Nancy Holder Erin Underwood Steve and Melanie Tem Lois Gresh Gar and Judy Reeves Stevens Daniel Sernine Paul Kane Sephera Giron Kathryn Ptacek Steve Vernon and others to look at the what if s of our expiring future.These stories span a range of emotions Some will make you laugh, other will make you cry They are grim and hopeful, sad and joyous, horrifying and comforting You can expect to be touched in some way.Introduction by Nancy KilpatrickNEGOTIATING OBLIVIONSorry Seems to be the Hardest Word by Kelley ArmstrongBanshee by Daniel Sernine translation by Sheryl Curtis Riding Shotgun by Elaine PascaleThe Twenty Seven Club by J M FreyTrinity Death by Steve VernonWhat I Said to Richie was by Ken GoldmanTo Dance, Perchance to Die by David McDonaldDeath Doll by Lois H GreshRESISTING EXTINCTION The Long Wait by R B PayneThat Brightness by Mary E ChooNight Market by Steve Rasnic Tem and Melanie TemSooner by Morgan DambergsThe Great Inevitable by Patricia FlewwellingIn a Moment by Christine SteendamDeath Drives a Cordoba by Ryan McFaddenPrison Break by Tobin ElliottThis Strange Way of Dying by Silvia Moreno GarciaThe Deaths of Jeremiah Colverson by George WilhiteBEST BEFORE BEST AFTERThe Shadow of Death by Paul KaneAn Inspector Calls by Rebecca BradleyWhat Would Lizzie Do by S phera Gir nAshes to Ashes by Amy GrechThe Greyness by Kathryn Ptacekthings in jars by Judith Garfield Reeves StevensRight of Survivorship by Nancy Holder and Erin Underwood Read Expiration Date – heartforum.co.uk

    I read several of these stories ahead of The God of Small Things and several afterward, and like many anthologies there were a few stories too nostalgic or fantastic for my taste, but several really hit home, especially Night Market and The Greyness that I would highly recommend.
