An anthology of post-apocalyptic short fiction from some of the biggest names in science fiction and speculative fiction - including Stephen King, George R. R. Martin and Orson Scott Card
Famine, Death, War, and Pestilence: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the harbingers of Armageddon - these are our guides through the Wastelands . . . From the Book of Revelations to The Road Warrior; from A Canticle for Leibowitz to The Road, storytellers have long imagined the end of the world, weaving tales of catastrophe, chaos, and calamity.
Gathering together the best post-apocalyptic 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.

'A first-rate anthology that quite convincingly represents the more recent SFnal view of the apocalypse' - Locus
'I can't help but give this collection the highest recommendation. I think this will be a cornerstone for most reader's shelves' - SFFWorld
'A well-chosen selection of well-crafted stories, offering something to please nearly every postapocalyptic palate' - Booklist

There is only one rule in the Wasteland: survive.
The few remaining women are as reviled as they are worshipped, a commodity any man must pay to touch. And to touch a Wanderer, he may pay with his life.
For Ezra, the risk is worth the reward. People speak his name with the same reverent terror reserved for ancient, wrathful gods, but he must always be ready to fend off those who would take what’s his. And what he wants to be his is Kadira.
Kadira, adopted after she witnessed the slaughter of her devoted parents, has vowed never to love or need anyone. It seems only fitting that she, an outsider, accept Ezra’s demand in trade for the fuel technology her clan needs—but her deep, unexpected need for him is the torture she’s fought all her life to avoid. Worse, the greater her wrath, the more he seems to like it.
Ezra’s mercenary half delights at having the warrior woman in his arms. His scientist half can’t resist the urge to see what makes her react—and what makes her explode.
The real experiment: if the bond they forge is strong enough to make her want to stay.

(Wastelands - Futa Apocalypse #3)
The news of Kathryn’s pregnancy spread through Undertown and everything changed. They wouldn’t be the last humans to live, and more than ever their community needed to open itself to the outside world.
It was with that in mind that they organized an expedition into the Wastelands, dominated by the Reapers, in hope of finding more humans like them, other survivors from the collapse. They couldn’t have expected to find what they did though, and they would realize not only weren’t they alone out there, but the Reapers were a far graver threat than they imagined.
Wastelands is the third book in the Futa Apocalypse series

EXP: CHAPTER 1 - TOGETHER
The character sat up, shook the cobwebs free, and then stood on wobbly legs, leaning on the wall for support. “Hello?” He asked, looking around, blind in the dark, naked from head to toe.
A lamp appeared beside him. “At your right foot there is a kerosene lamp. Pick it up and turn it on.” As I write this, the words light up in big bright letters on the wall – neon words of pink and green. The character nearly falls over with the surprising light. When he gathers himself, he looks up at the wall. We can now communicate.
“Who are you?” The character turns on the lamp, and the small round room fills with light. He is standing on the concrete floor of a large silo, with infinite blackness above - stretching to the top of my imagination. “Where am I?” 10 doors surround him; they are black, dark, and ominous, with silver words written on them, reflecting the light.
“My name is Anthony, and I am the author who made you. I don’t know your name. I’m hoping you will find it along the way.” I paused. “You’ve stumbled out of your story, and you are back at the spot where I first created you. The problem is, I don’t know what story you came from . . .
****This used to be titled AWOL: A Character Lost. New cover. New title. Same book.****

In Out of the Wasteland, founding Executive Director of the Community Environmental Council Paul Relis takes us on a journey of the environmental frontier, from the heady days of the birth of environmentalism in Santa Barbara, into the intricate, obfuscated but all important world of government and policy, to important new environmental technologies that can, indeed, free us from this age of oil.

Lys ahnt nicht, dass ihre neugefundenen Freunde längst versuchen sie aus ihrer misslichen Lage zu befreien.
