Wastelands: Free Stories and Trailer
John Joseph Adams has posted six stories from his cool anthology, Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse, at the book’s website:
- “And the Deep Blue Sea” by Elizabeth Bear
- “Bread and Bombs” by M. Rickert
- “When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth” by Cory Doctorow
- “The Last of the O-Forms” by James Van Pelt
- “Still Life With Apocalypse” by Richard Kadrey
- “Waiting for the Zephyr” by Tobias S. Buckell
And then there’s the book trailer. I’m not sure how effective book trailers are, but they seem to be becoming more prevalent. I have yet to see a trailer that is more than just a glorified print ad that takes me more time to watch than it would to read. What publishers really need to do is produce a full-blown, professionally endorsed commercial, released on YouTube instead of TV. I’d buy a book that William Shatner says I should buy. Unless he wrote it, of course. Hiyo!
Trailer after the jump…
