Disastrous! by Scott Overton
Let’s admit it, there’s a guilty pleasure in imagining how civilization could end!
An invasion from beneath our feet. A hammer blow from the sky. A genetic crop modification that could bring about humanity’s extinction.
Business capitols of the world are suddenly swallowed into the ground, and a chemical explosion devastates New Jersey as survivors flee invaders from beneath the Earth. Three friends have a chance to open a dialogue with the enemy. If they can overcome their own hatred. (First published in the anthology "Doomology" from Library of Science Fiction & Fantasy Press, 2010).
A killer asteroid is headed for the Earth and the defense against it depends on one genius. But what if he’s the wrong choice?
The people of a far-future pastoral Earth discover that their ancestors genetically modified their crops to undergo occasional die-offs, as a protection against mutations. But when all of the crops begin to die at the same time, it may be the end of the human race.
