Welcome to the End of the World


Separator image

There’s only one apocalypse more frightening than the rest. It’s one from the mind of multiple Bram Stoker Award-nominated author John FD Taff.
Josh Malerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box, says: “THE FEARING isn’t only Taff’s best book to date, it’s the kind you put on the shelf reserved for the ones that really did something to you, emotionally, intellectually, physically.”
Originally serialized in four volumes in 2019 and called “the event of the year,” the dystopian epic has returned in one complete book. Get your copies at the GMP Bookstore.
