Weird World War IV

We rated this book:


Albert Einstein once spoke about not knowing how World War III would be fought, but that the next war would be fought “with sticks and stones.” Not even Einstein could dream up the future wars written about in Weird World War IV. U.S. Army Veteran and speculative fiction writer Sean Patrick Hazlett compiled and curated twenty-one stories into this weird anthology. Contributing writers include Steve Barnes, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Jonathan Maberry, Weston Ochse, and many more award-winning and bestselling authors.

Stories in this anthology range from dystopian in nature to hard-core sci-fi. Some are more fantastical, and others are just plain odd. While not all stories are written from a post-war point of view, they all deal with life after a world-changing event. With the diversity of authors in this collection, the stories cover a wide range of genres, viewpoints, and styles. From novella to screenplay, this book covers it all. Many of these post-apocalyptic stories were written during the global pandemic and reflect the authors’ distrust and ideologies. There is a short story for just about any type of audience. Come take a look at the absurdity of future wars.
