On Facebook, author (and reviewer) Adam-Troy Castro started reading Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2015 (guest editor: Joe Hill), and just three stories in made the following pronouncement: “On the basis of those first three stories, alone, I am ready to call this book a monument.” There’s a lot of background behind that praise that he goes into in his post which is well worth reading as well (which he couches in the context of “behind the scenes of a writer’s ego”).

REVIEW: ScienceFiction.com on WASTELANDS 2 – “Highly recommended”

“Editor John Joseph Adams has done an exceptional job of finding even more cream of the crop from this specific sub genre of fiction.  […] This equal level of quality across the board is certainly this compilations greatest strength and what truly makes it worth the read.  Whether seeing the outbreak of a deadly virus through the eyes of a trapped child, watching humankind literally transform to survive a series of apocalypses, or following a man open up a business among the world’s rubble, each story provides a fresh perspective among the book’s five hundred plus pages. No matter what your favorite flavor of end of the world yarn may be, this tome comes highly recommended.” —ScienceFiction.com, on Wastelands 2 [review]
