Title: Going Gone
Author: Abraham Lopez
Genre: Anthology/Alternate History
Going Gone reads as a collection of short-story snapshots of what happens to a variety of Americans after a pivotal leader in the Middle East is assassinated and the blame is placed on the United States. Covering the despair, power plays, and religious fervor such an event could produce, the author creates a believable “end-of-the-world” scenario that plays out with cold accuracy and just a pinch of hope.
