Edited by John Joseph Adams and Hugh Howey.
Into the darkness within; or else the light...
When Margaret Atwood wrote these words, she left open the possibility that even our darkest tales may harbor a glimmer of hope. In OR ELSE THE LIGHT, the third and final entry of THE DYSTOPIA TRIPTYCH, over a dozen of the best minds in science fiction conclude their stories with a descent into darkness, or perhaps a ray of light.
Edited by acclaimed anthologist John Joseph Adams and bestselling author Hugh Howey, THE DYSTOPIA TRIPTYCH is a series of three anthologies of dystopian fiction. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH — before the dystopia — focuses on society during its descent into absurdity and madness. BURN THE ASHES — during the dystopia — turns its attention to life during the strangest, most dire times. OR ELSE THE LIGHT — after the dystopia — concludes the saga with each author sharing their own vision of how we as a society might crawl back from the precipice of despair.
OR ELSE THE LIGHT features all-new, never-before-published works by Hugh Howey, Seanan McGuire, Carrie Vaughn, Scott Sigler, and many others.
