Survival is a collection of sixty-two very short stories (50 by Mizeta, 12 by Howard),, some less than a single page, and three longer works. The collection leads off with Howard's post-apocalyptic story "Survival", a multi-chapter tale set in the year 2084 on the northwest coast of Canada. The final story, also a longer one by Howard, is "Dark Mountain", an adventure tale set in current time in the Colorado Rocky mountains where innocent mushroom hunters become entangled with a drug cartel gang and have to fight for their survival. The third longer piece is a futuristic time-travel story by Mizeta, "Long-Term Investment", with some unexpected twists and turns.
