After the World Ended
The world is a museum of fragile, curious things.
In this collection of eighteen of her very best stories, Hannah Lackoff takes you on a guided tour of the marvelous: a ranch which held out, for years, believing the apocalypse had consumed the world (and the man who discovered them); twin sisters inseparable by eye or death; the life of a queen and the many lives of a mirror, mirror on the wall; wrong numbers on the restaurant wall and a small cabin in the woods, near your home, where the dead never dare to stay dead.
Hannah Lackoff, like so many great authors before her, settles in with the bones with old stories, clichéd tales, and urban legends and builds them into her exhibits. They are alive again, and demand your attention.
Step into her museum, won’t you?
