Overview

In Beyond Armageddon, the distinguished science fiction writer Walter M. Miller Jr. (1923–96) and the famed anthologist Martin H. Greenberg have together collected stories that address one of the most challenging themes of imaginative fiction: the nature of life after nuclear war. The twenty-one stories in this collection, by masters such as Arthur C. Clarke, Poul Anderson, Ray Bradbury, J. G. Ballard, Robert Sheckley, Roger Zelazny, and Harlan Ellison, explore a variety of possibilities of “life after.” These richly imagined stories offer glimpses into a future no reader will soon forget. Miller’s incisive introduction and a thought-provoking and irreverent commentary are included. New to this Bison Books edition is a postscript to the introduction provided by Martin H. Greenberg.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Miller, whose novel A Canticle for Leibowitz is a landmark of post-holocaust SF, opens this anthology of SF stories on nuclear war with a provocative and challenging introduction: he suggests that the bomb would be safer with Qaddafi than Reagan. This properly unsettles the reader for the following 21 imaginations of disaster. Arranged in a rough future chronology, they include such classics as J. G. Ballard's apocalyptic ``Terminal Beach,'' Stephen Vincent Benet's vision of a ruined New York in ``By the Waters of Babylon,'' Ray Bradbury's nostalgic ``There Will Come Soft Rains'' and Harlan Ellison's fierce ``A Boy and His Dog.'' Where most seek metaphors of devastation, the less well known stories are sometimes grittier, for example, Lucius Shepard's ``Salvador,'' on a possible future Vietnam, Jim Aiken's nasty ``My Life in the Jungle'' and Poul Anderson's 1946 ``Tomorrow's Children,'' the only story here to mention the effect of nuclear winter and the story that deals most pragmatically and tragically with the human consequences of radiation-induced mutations. Altogether, a thought-provoking, varied and well chosen anthology. October 31
Home Planet News

“In these troubled times, the University of Nebraska Press has rendered a great service in reprinting this 1985 anthology of life in the aftermath of cataclysmic (usually nuclear) war. . . . Walter M. Miller, Jr. came out of self-imposed retirement long enough to put together this extraordinary volume. . . . . One of the most compelling anthologies of short fiction, post-holocaust SF or otherwise, ever assembled.”—Home Planet News
