Book Review: Wastelands 2, part 2

Wastelands 2: More Stories Of The Apocalypse edited by John Joseph Adams, part 2

Colliding Branes
The universe is ending. Terrible.

A man walks into a trap. This was bad and misogynistic.

Best Line:
Maybe you should know what’s in the basement.”

A boy survives the end. Okay.

Best Line:
“They promised the government would help the sick. I wasn’t sure shooting them or rounding them up in trucks counted as help.”

Beat Me Daddy (Eight to the Bar)
By Cory Doctorow. 10 years after the plague, survivors forage in the rubble. Okay with an improbable end.

Best Lines:
There’s plenty of rubble to go around.”

“Like some Dark Ages peasant.”

A Beginner’s Guide To Survival Before, During And After The Apocalypse
Survival does not come easy. Okay.

Wondrous Day
By Genevieve Valentine. This was confusing and makes no sense. Mayans are mentioned.

Dreams In Dust
Okay, reminds me of ‘Dune’.

By Fools Like Me
An old woman and a young girl wonder over relics of a lost age: books. Naturally bad things happen. This was good and bleak as the world is beneath the feet of idiots.

Jimmy’s Roadside Café
After the plague, a man tries to help others. Okay.

Best Line:
“Wild things are starting to come out, now that we’re gone.”
