The Black Marker at the End of Time

Short Story by Ron Collins

$0.99 available in bundle


A lone figure walks a desolate beach. Heart cold and worn. Gun empty.

Behind him the war of all wars destroys humankind. Before him lies the ocean.

Cold. Harsh. Vast. Ageless.


Ron Collins is an Amazon best-selling Dark Fantasy author who writes across the spectrum of speculative fiction. His fantasy series Saga of the God-Touched Mage was the #1 best-selling dark fantasy on Amazon’s list in the UK for a couple weeks (#2 in the US). His short fiction has received a Writers of the Future prize and a CompuServe HOMer Award, and his short story “The White Game” was nominated for the Short Mystery Fiction Society’s 2016 Derringer Award.

He holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and worked to develop avionics systems, electronics, and information technology before chucking it all to write fulltime–which he now does from his home at the foothills of the Catalina mountains.
