The Candy Man Can: Or Why John Joseph Adams is Genre Fiction’s Willy Wonka. Barnes & Noble.com's Paul Goat Allen calls John Joseph Adams "the reigning king of the anthology world." He adds, "Every anthology this guy is associated with seems to turn to gold: and by gold I mean jaw-droppingly brilliant anthologies with no weak links that I’ll not only read again and again but treasure until the day I die." Wastelands is "arguably my favorite anthology of all time," The Living Dead is "the best collection of zombie fiction stories ever collected," and By Blood We Live is "another masterful – dare I say perfect – anthology."
