Uncorrected Proof: 2008 will launch with this superb new anthology put together by John Joseph Adams, Wastelands. Given that this is a collection of "Stories of Life After Apocalypse" it might not be the most optimistic start to a new year, but at the same time, Adams has put together an extraordinary grouping of stories by top drawer names. Wastelands will be published by Nightshade Books and will feature tales by Stephen King, George R.R. Martin, Jonathan Letham, Orson Scott Card, Gene Wolfe, and Octavia Butler. Newer writers will be represented too, amongst them Tobias Buckell, Richard Kadrey, Cory Doctorow and Paolo Bacigalupi. Recommended.
