One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses Overview

One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses, a collection of short stories by Lucy Corin, consists of four distinct stories, each somehow meditating on the concept of the apocalypse. The first three of these stories--"Eyes of Dogs," "Madmen," and "Godzilla Versus the Smog Monster" are more or less traditional short stories, featuring one narrator, one plot, and one ending. Corin's final story "A Hundred Apocalypses," however, is broken down into four chapters, which are in turn broken down into multiple vignettes, resulting in a plethora of narrators, plots, conflicts, resolutions, and endings. These voices, combined with those of the first three stories, demonstrate that the apocalypse does not only come in zombies and nuclear war, but also simple, everyday occurrences, such as heartbreak, growing up, and eating cake.
