We’ve always imagined the world coming to an end in spectacular, explosive fashion. But what if – instead – humanity is just destined to slowly crumble?

For Jasper and his nomadic tribe, their former life as middle-class Americans seems like a distant memory. Their world took a turn for the worse – and then never got better. Resources are running out, jobs keep getting scarcer, and the fabric of society is slowly disintegrating . . . .

But in the midst of this all, Jasper’s just a guy trying to make ends meet, find a nice girl who won’t screw him around, and keep his group safe on the violent streets.

Soft Apocalypse follows the tribe’s struggle to find a place for themselves and their children in the dangerous new place their world has become.

McIntosh's first novel is a grim glimpse into a future that is not all that improbable . . . This is the sort of thoughtful sociological SF we see too seldom today . . . Well worth a read
Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine
Very affecting. Though it may be soft, this apocalypse has plenty of sharp edges
Publishers Weekly
A first novel that's compelling, credible, and relentless, whose best and most disturbing moments will stay with the reader for a long time
Bottom line: If Soft Apocalypse isn't nominated for a Hugo or Nebula Award, I will eat the entire book page by page . . .
