I'm editing a new reprint anthology of post-apocalyptic short fiction for Night Shade Books called WASTELANDS 2. As the title indicates, it is a follow up to my critically-acclaimed anthology WASTELANDS. As I’ve done with most of my other anthologies, I’d like to solicit recommendations, so if you have any outstanding examples of post-apocalyptic fiction you’d like to point out to me, please feel free to let me know about them by entering them into this database.
As I did with my previous sequel anthology, THE LIVING DEAD 2, for WASTELANDS 2, I will likely be focusing on very new material, primarily stories published since WASTELANDS (Vol. 1) was assembled. The first volume was published in January 2008, but since it was mostly edited the year before, basically I'll primarily be looking for material published from 2007-Present.
Since this is an anthology, obviously I'm primarily interested in short fiction, but if you want to recommend novels or novel series, that is welcome too, as I may include a "for further reading" list in the anthology. Note, however, that there is an extensive list of novels in WASTELANDS (Vol. 1), so again this would primarily be of interest for material published 2007-Present.
If you are a writer and would like to recommend your own short fiction, that is quite welcome. If you'd like to submit your story for consideration, please use my online submission system located at http://tinyurl.com/9u7zry9. If you're submitting your own story for consideration, there is no need to also enter it into the database (but there's no harm done if you do).
