Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse

Postby Wraith » Sat Sep 01, 2007 5:37 am


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. Whether the end of the world comes through nuclear war, ecological disaster, or cosmological cataclysm, these are tales of survivors, in some cases struggling to rebuild the society that was, in others, merely surviving, scrounging for food in depopulated ruins and defending themselves against monsters, mutants, and marauders.

Complete with introductions and an indispensable appendix of recommendations for further reading, Wastelands delves into this bleak landscape, uncovering the raw human emotion and heart-pounding thrills at the genre’s core.

Looks great - its been a long time since a good PA anthology came out. Im really suprised at the quality of the authors in this one though , every one could probably sell the book on their own , but to have them all collected here is great. Thanks for posting this Ive already pre-ordered mine - but damn I dont want to have to wait till January.
