Writers Write About Climate Change

11Aug11
Here’s an interesting project. Some of my favorite writers are contributing to a book of stories about climate change, including Margaret Atwood, David Mitchell and Kim Stanley Robinson. The book apparently was inspired by Ian McEwan‘s remarks that not enough authors are writing about climate change.Science fiction must have addressed this issue. Of course, there is Robinson’s egregious Science in the Capital trilogy, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Octavia Butler‘s Parables have climate change as one of the factors in the disintegration of society. Earth by +David Brin also imagines the near-term effects of climate change. Any other suggestions?

  1. I’m excited to read more about this. Love it! Love the authors and the topic. Even though it’s scary as hell.
