Summary:

Famine, Death, War, and Pestilence-the Four Horsemen of theApocalypse, the harbingers of Armageddon-these are our guides through theWastelands.
From the Book of Revelation to The Road Warrior, from A Canticle for Leibowitz to The Road, storytellershave long imagined the end of the world, weaving eschatological tales ofcatastrophe, chaos, and calamity. In doing so, these visionary authors haveaddressed one of the most challenging and enduring themes of imaginativefiction: the nature of life in the aftermath of total societal collapse.
Gathering together the best postapocalyptic literature ofthe last two decades from many of today's most renowned authors of speculativefiction-including George R. R. Martin, Gene Wolfe, Orson Scott Card, CarolEmshwiller, Jonathan Lethem, Octavia E. Butler, and Stephen King-Wastelands exploresthe scientific, psychological, and philosophical questions of what it means toremain human in the wake of Armageddon. Whether the end of the world comesthrough nuclear war, ecological disaster, or cosmological cataclysm, these aretales of survivors, in some cases struggling to rebuild the society that was,in others, merely surviving, scrounging for food in depopulated ruins anddefending themselves against monsters, mutants, and marauders.
Wastelands delves into this bleak landscape,uncovering the raw human emotion and heart-pounding thrills at the genre'score.
