Prep for Doom is a dystopian tale written around the annihilation of the majority of the world's population. When a deadly virus sweeps around the world, those who remain are left shell shocked by the sudden death of everything and everyone they hold dear. Each person deals with the horrific event and the search for survival in his or her own way. This premise makes for the perfect opportunity for E.R. Arroyo and the members of Band of Dystopian to dissect the event into a cohesive collection of short stories, each told by a different author from a different point of view, but all sharing the common threads of this one terrifying event.

An author once told me it was virtually impossible for two or more people to collaborate on a single project and maintain a consistent voice. Prep for Doom is proof that while it may be difficult, it is not impossible. E.R. Arroyo and the members of Band of Dystopian masterfully worked together to create a collection of short stories that read as fluidly as a full-blown novel. Each chapter flows naturally into the next, creating a time line that allows the reader to see how society devolves as the virus turns the world into a chaotic trip into horror. Prep for Doom does what all good stories do. It elicits a reaction from the reader and makes you think about what you would do into the same situation, as well as how easy it would be for fiction to become reality.
