Edited by acclaimed anthologist John Joseph Adams, WASTELANDS 2: MORE STORIES OF THE APOCALYPSE is the star-studded follow-up to the 2008 bestselling anthology Wastelands. The first book traced the 21st century resurgence of post-apocalyptic fiction, and while it is considered the definitive collection of its kind, dozens of new stories have been written since it was released. Five of the stories are from the 20th Century, but the remaining twenty-six were all published from the year 2000 onward, and nineteen of those originally appeared in the years since volume one came out. Like its predecessor, WASTELANDS 2 will feature a who’s who of modern authors including George R. R. Martin , Hugh Howey , Junot Diaz , Ann Aguirre , Cory Doctorow , Nancy Kress , and more. The thirty-one stories include the seminal tale “The Postman” by David Brin, and “The Happiest Place,” a new work by John W. Campbell Award winner Mira Grant
