Vigil, by C. R. Saunders

Vigil is a vampire apocalyptic novel told in two time streams penned by English author Craig Saunders (writing here as C.R. Saunders). This is not a romance, the vampires are brutal and viscous killers, and the humans at war with them are suitably meek but actively opposed to the hunters higher up in the food chain than themselves.

Beer Run Of The Dead, by Don Noble

Beer Run Of The Dead, by Don Noble is the story of Kip, a terminally awkward nerd struggling to keep his head together as the world ends on the last day of school (naturally). He is forced to live through the last, bloody moments of human civilization with Richard (his mother's current boyfriend) and survive in the wreckage with Rock and Steady, two hopeless rockstar rejects. During their struggles, Kip will have to man up or be promptly reduced to juicy sirloin steaks by the ravenous hordes of the dead.

Explaining Cthulhu To Grandma, by Alex Shvartsman

Explaining Cthulhu to Grandma is a collection of short stories by Alex Shvartsman, ranging from humorous urban fantasy stories about quack exorcists-for-hire, to Christmas tales from the deepest, grimmest future to the occasional case of meta-humorous shenanigans, taking place among characters that are perfectly aware that they are going through nonsensical events in a disorderly universe.

Abbreviated Epics Anthology, edited by Juliana Rew

The Abbreviated Epics Anthology by Third FlatIron Press is a collection of short fantasy stories, each of which tackles the oft-quoted theme of 'epic', repurposing it according to each author's whim. There are steampunk shorts that take you to exotic locales, theological discussions in strange new universies, cosmological debates among nascent godlings and railroad rides with trickster-gods.
