The people over at Titan Books were so kind to send me a copy of this book! I saw Ken Liu and Seanan McGuire on the cover and my mind went 'YES. YES PLEASE'.

John Joseph Adams is one of the foremost editors and anthologists of our times. The list of anthologies he has edited or co-edited is impressive, and I own several of them, including the first two volumes of this series. I don't think this is quite as impressive as some (especially Cosmic Powers) simply because this end-of-the-world concept has been done so many times before that it's really hard to come up with a fresh take on it. At this point in the series, I think the stories have to be more ...more

I genuinely cannot remember the last time I read a short story collection so consistently stunning. Honestly, there's not a weak one in the bunch, and that's saying a lot considering there are 34 tales of post-apocalyptic life in this hefty volume. Whether the end of the world comes about due to war or infection or alien invasion or climate disaster (or other reason I'm presently forgetting,) these stories chronicle the ways life goes on. It is a surprisingly joyous anthology. Hope is one throug ...more

This is an amazingly well built anthology with a seriously high level of storytelling. It also tends to have a moment of hope in dark times plus reflect people who aren’t all lantern jawed Male heroes. Fantastic

'Wastelands: The New Apocalypse' is the latest anthology from Titan Books, and the third book in the Wastelands series. Edited by John Joseph Adams, it collects together an impressive thirty-four short stories that take readers through a host of post-apocalyptic fiction.

One of the most impressive things about this collection is the sheer variety in the stories that it provides. The apocalypse is a wide and fertile environment, a place where writers can tell almost any kind of story, in as differ

Please read my full review here.

Received free of charge in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.

When reading stories about the apocalypse, one theme is almost always prevalent: hope. Even in the wake of absolute destruction, mankind will always strive for survival, no matter what the circumstances. What that hope looks like may differ from person to person, but the overarching desire to know we continue on is always at the forefront. Each of these stories is an example of how we surv

copy from @TitanBooks and voluntarily reviewed

Wastelands, the first collection of stories edited by John Joseph Adams cemented my love of apocalyptic / dystopian fiction and contained one of my all-time favourite stories, The End of the Whole Mess by Stephen King. So I had high hopes for this collection. This third outing more or less met these expectations and was very satisfying. I will need to read the second volume. One of the strengths of this collect

I've read all three volumes of this excellent series. This was my least favorite volume, but still a very good read. You don't need to read them in any particular order but I would recommend starting with volume 1, as I think it is the best. Some of the stories you will have encountered in other anthologies or publications, but only a few. Many of the stories are about ecological disaster, so called cli-fi, which is a subject I enjoy(?).
