Abstract:

Famine, Death, War, and Pestilence--the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the harbingers of Armageddon--these are our guides through the Wastelands. Gathering together 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--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.
