Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse - George R.R. Martin, Stephen King, John Joseph Adams, Paolo Bacigalupi, M. Rickert, Octavia E. Butler, Cory Doctorow, Carol Emshwiller, Gene Wolfe, Jonathan Lethem, Orson Scott Card A great collection of stories from some authors I've heard of and some brand new to me. If you like stories of life after the "Big One", or the horrors of a life surrounded by pestilence and disease, pick this up. If you think you could be one of the survivors or one of the mutants that are left, read through this and see what else could happen. There are a few scenarios for "The End" that never occurred to me and have given me quite a bit to think about.
