Wastelands

Stories of the Apocalypse

John Joseph Adams,

Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse
 
 

An anthology of post-apocalyptic short fiction from some of the biggest names in science fiction and speculative fiction - including Stephen King, George R. R. Martin and Orson Scott Card

Famine, Death, War, and Pestilence: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the harbingers of Armageddon - these are our guides through the Wastelands . . . From the Book of Revelations to The Road Warrior; from A Canticle for Leibowitz to The Road, storytellers have long imagined the end of the world, weaving tales of catastrophe, chaos, and calamity.

Gathering together the best post-apocalyptic literature of the last two decades from many of today's most renowned authors of speculative fiction, including George R.R. Martin, Gene Wolfe, Orson Scott Card, Carol Emshwiller, Jonathan Lethem, Octavia E. Butler, and Stephen King, Wastelands explores the scientific, psychological, and philosophical questions of what it means to remain human in the wake of Armageddon.

Praise for Wastelands:

'Arguably my favorite anthology of all time - just packed with speculative masterworks' - Paul Goat Allen, Barnes & Noble.com

'A first-rate anthology that quite convincingly represents the more recent SFnal view of the apocalypse' - Locus

'I can't help but give this collection the highest recommendation. I think this will be a cornerstone for most reader's shelves' - SFFWorld

'A well-chosen selection of well-crafted stories, offering something to please nearly every postapocalyptic palate' - Booklist
