REVIEW: Fantasy Book Review on WASTELANDS 2

Fantasy Book Review reviews Wastelands 2: “Contain[s] a number of individual stories that are every bit as good – and 2 that are arguably even better [than Wastelands 1]. […] As with all of John Joseph Adams’ work I highly recommend it.” [review]

 

INTERVIEW: JJA on The Once & Future Podcast

Anton Strout interviewed me for episode 78 of The Once & Future Podcast, which he describes thusly:

Wherein I talk with award winning editor/anthologist John Joseph Adams about a deep love of the post-apocalyptic, how we’d be the first ones dead, military fantasy, BREAKING ANTHOLOGY NEWS FROM SAGA PRESS, the neuroses of authors, Viking and folk metal, his Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast, and the 743 anthologies he has releasing this year.

It was a fun interview! Give it a listen.

NEWS: Pay-What-You-Want for the Humble “Post-Apocalyptic” Book Bundle, including THE END IS NIGH!

I helped curate the latest Humble Bundle, which includes THE END IS NIGH, as well as a mini-bundle of Lightspeed issues that contain apocalyptic stories.

You can pay-what-you-want to get the bundle, which includes a great assortment of titles. Here’s more about the Bundle and how Humble Bundle works, from the press release:

Today Humble Bundle has launched its latest curated bundle featuring a mix of books, comics, magazines, an audiobook, plus a game, each with a post-apocalyptic bent to them. For this sci-fi themed bundle, Humble is partnering with some of the leading publishers from around the country such as Broad Reach Publishing, Open Road, Dark Horse, Tachyon, Drawn & Quarterly, iBooks, Trion Worlds, Penguin Random House UK, Diversion Books, Oni Press, Prime Books, and Lightspeed Magazine, many of which Humble has successfully partnered with before.

This Humble Book Bundle boasts works by some of the top writers, artists, and editors in literature and comics including Octavia Butler, Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan, David Lapham, Hugh Howey, Brian Wood,Brian Ralph, Kim Stanley Robinson, Roger Zelazny, MK Wren, Antony Johnston, Cory Doctorow, John Joseph Adams, Walter Mosley, Fritz Leiber, George R. R. Martin, Lauren Beukes, Paolo Bacigalupi, Nancy Kress, and many more.

“We are so excited about the launch of this mixed multi media bundle, our first ever to include books, graphic novels, magazines, an audiobook, and a game!” said Humble Bundle Director of Books Kelley Allen. “John Joseph Adams is very well read in this particular sub-genre and together we worked for months curating the list, searching for the best “post apoc” titles from beloved and popular authors. We also have titles from some very promising up-and-comers as well. A complete collection to tide you over after the End Days!”

As with all Humble Bundles, customers can choose how their purchase dollars are allocated, between the publisher and charity. The Humble Post Apocalyptic Book Bundle supports both Worldbuilders, whose mission is to unite the geek community in hopes of bringing about long lasting change in the world, and the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America Emergency Medical and Legal Fund, established to assist eligible member writers who have unexpected medical expenses and to create loans for eligible member writers who have writing-related court costs and other related legal expenses.

The Humble Post-Apocalyptic Book Bundle runs from now until Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 11 a.m. Pacific time.

And here’s a bit about Humble Bundle: Humble Bundle organizes pay-what-you-want plus charity promotions for awesome digital content and puts the power directly in the hands of the consumers, offering them fully-featured titles at prices they set themselves. Consumers pay what they want and decide how to allocate their money between content creators, charity and a humble tip. Humble Bundle also offers the Humble Store, a digital storefront that features great games at great prices with a portion of sales going to select charities. Since the company’s launch in 2010, Humble Bundle has helped empower its community to allocate more than $54 million toward charity to date. For more information, please visit humblebundle.com.

INTERVIEW: SF Signal on Wastelands 2

SF Signal interviews me about Wastelands 2:

What do you especially enjoy about editing anthologies, and what kinds of special problems do anthologies present (i.e. choosing stories, contacting authors, winnowing, etc.)?

JJA: When I’m doing a reprint anthology likeWastelands 2, I enjoy being a curator, and it’s a responsibility I take very seriously. When you read one of my anthologies, I want it to be clear that much more went into it than just slapping the first X number of stories I found between two covers; when I do a reprint volume, I really try to search far and wide, and cast as wide a net as possible to ensure that I included all of the best material on the given topic that is available. I read everything you so you don’t have to; “Trust me,” I say, “I’ve conducted an extensive survey of the field, and these are all the stories on this particular theme that you need to read.”
