I have a soft spot in my heart for Post Apocalyptic Literature. Some great stories can come out of it (The Road, anyone?). John Joseph Adams, assistant editor of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction has an anthology coming out in January called Wastelands.

Look at that lineup! Stephen King, Octavia Butler, George Martin, Lethem, Gene Wolfe! Gaaaah!
Yeah, I'll find a copy of this one somewhere, somewhen. The King, I know, is in one of his own collections and the Butler has been previously collected (it's a great one!), but this is one hell of an anthology!
Damn, that's a great lineup. Great website, too. I'll be browsing it at greater length later.
Thanks to Tobias Buckell for the link.
