After: Ninteen Stories of Apocalypse and Dystopia

After: Nineteen Stories of Apocalypse and Dystopia
Edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling
Hardcover, 1st Edition, 384 pages
Published October 9th 2012 by Hyperion Book CH 
 
Here is a variety of post-apocalyptic short stories. Some were fabulous, some were not-so-great (almost terrible even) and others were just mediocre. So basically there is probably something for everyone in this collection. However, since I am a life-long fan of dystopian literature, this was right up my alley. Though be prepared for several references to same-gender relations as that is apparently going to be the norm in the future according to several of these authors. Love the mini-bios at the end so I can check out more works by those authors whom I enjoyed.
