About the Megapacks
Over the previous few years, our “Megapack” sequence of book anthologies has proved to be considered one of our hottest endeavors. (Maybe it is helping that we occasionally supply them as rates to our mailing record! ) One query we continue getting requested is, “Who’s the editor? ”
The Megapacks (except the place particularly credited) are a gaggle attempt. everybody at Wildside works on them. This comprises John Betancourt, Mary Wickizer Burgess, Sam Cooper, Carla Coupe, Steve Coupe, Bonner Menking, Colin Azariah-Kribbs, Robert Reginald. A. E.

From the swarming, last-redoubt towers of the polar areas, the place humanity huddles from the savage warmth of Greenhouse Earth, to the dusty refugee camps of a shattered the United States; from the digital truth panorama the place children search to fix a wounded planet, to the post-human globe populated by means of wily transgenic heirs to mankind; and, finally, around the ideology-splintered ruins of the U.
