“A well-chosen selection of well-crafted stories, offering something to please nearly every postapocalyptic palate.”
Famine, Death, War, and Pestilence—the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the harbingers of Armageddon—these are our guides through the Wastelands.
Brought to you by John Joseph Adams, called “the reigning king of the anthology world” by Barnes & Noble, Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse gathers 22 tales of the best postapocalyptic 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—in an exploration of what it means to remain human in the wake of Armageddon.
John Joseph Adams is the editor of several anthologies, including The Living Dead and The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination. He is also the editor and publisher of the magazines Lightspeed and Nightmare, and is the co-host of Wired.com’s The Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast.
To adequately capture and convey the voices of such a wide-ranging set of authors, Skyboat brought in eleven different narrators, including Mr. Harlan Ellison reading Richard Kadrey’s “Still Life with Apocalypse.” A thoughtfully assembled cast of talented narrators reading carefully compiled stories by classic science fiction writers. Sounds like a win-win-win. Get yours on downpour today!
