The apocalyptic cover of the book caught my eye wandering through Barnes and Noble. I recognized the name as I enjoyed the first book is the series. I picked it up and took a seat. The Apocalypse is here. The New Apocalypse is the third edition to the Wastelands series. The book was edited by John Joseph Adams who is one of the most impressive writers of these types of books.
The entire concept of the end of the world and apocalypse type scenarios can be challenging to write and at the same time also be a good story to read.
In this series each book has gotten more disturbing and then the previous one in the series. If you like an adrenaline rush and to be disturbed on the edge of your seat, this is the book for you.
The anthology editor is a veteran in this topic of books. John guide you through the wastelands by curating a collection of his best post apocalyptic short fiction stories. There’s many ways the world again and whether it’s the next pandemic like an airborne virus or an astroid heading for earth like in the movie Armageddon. Either way there’s guaranteed to be many trials and obstacles to overcome for the characters.
The new apocalypse features 34 stories that will leave you visualizing what the end of the world would actually be like. The stories are disturbing, showing, and will make your heart skip a beat if you read just one of the many stories inside the new Apocalypse.
As far as post apocalyptic fiction stories This book is one of the best. So we added it to The Survival Library under the Fiction Stories section.
