Publisher's Description 
Gripping original stories of dystopian worlds from nine New York Times bestselling authors, edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong

The world is gone, destroyed by human, ecological, or supernatural causes. Survivors dodge chemical warfare and cruel gods; they travel the reaches of space and inhabit underground caverns. Their enemies are disease, corrupt corporations, and one another; their resources are few, and their courage is tested.

Powerful original dystopian tales from nine bestselling authors offer bleak insight, prophetic visions, and precious glimmers of light among the shards and ashes of a ruined world.

Kelley Armstrong
Rachel Caine
Kami Garcia
Nancy Holder
Melissa Marr
Beth Revis
Veronica Roth
Carrie Ryan
Margaret Stohl

  1. OOh I look forward to this one too!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Hmmm... I'd say that this sounds more like 'post-apocalyptic' worlds rather than dystopian, but maybe they've been conflated while I wasn't looking? In any case, that's a strong lineup of writers. Nice pick!

    If you'd like, you can check out my WoW here.

  3. I hadn't heard of this one before so thank you for selecting it! I'm not sure if I will read it or not but thanks for sharing! ^.^ If you would like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday you can do so here. :)

  4. Interesting pick, very post-Apocalypse. I think I've only read 2 of the authors, but I've heard great things about a lot of the others!
    This is my WoW (:

  5. I love this type of book where there's a collection of stories and this one has some great authors too!
    Great pick :)
    Check mine out here if you like :)

  6. All I need to know is that Kelley Armstrong is involved. :D

    My WoW

  7. That does sound good! I'm usually disappointed in anthologies but I think they're getting better.

  8. This is so on my list! Kelley Armstong, Nancy Holder and Rachel Caine?! Oh Yea I'm in
