The Yellowstone Caldera has erupted once every 600,000 years. We’re 40,000 years overdue.
A LAND OF ASH
Lava flows stretch for hundreds of miles. A cloud of ash billows east, burying the Midwest, destroying crops, and falling upon the Pacific Coast like a warm, dead snow. The remnants of the United States flees south as the global temperatures plummet.
Amid this total devastation are stories of families, friends, sons and fathers and wives: the survivors. Within are eleven stories focusing on the human element of such a catastrophe, from an elderly couple gathering to await their death to a father sealing his shelter in hopes of keeping the air breathable for his daughter. Contributing to this collection include many popular and up-and-coming independent authors, including David McAfee, Daniel Arenson, and more.

A Land Of Ash
Wow...loved the book. Writing is great. Stories were interesting and terrifying at the same time. Makes you think about how one would behave under such circumstances.
Interesting book, I wish there was more!.
The writing is good, but the writers should have learned something about volcanoes and eruptions before writing about them. Really disappointing. I quit reading halfway through because some of the stuff (like the super heavy ash) was too silly.
