A really solid anthology chock full of excellent stories. Most anthologies are a bit hit-and-miss, ie you love some stories and hate others, but this one is almost all hits. Beautifully written science fiction by predominantly non-science-fiction authors, all concerning climate change in some way.

It’s really, really good. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

A riveting and provocative collection of short fiction, Beacons throws down the gauntlet to award-winning writers, challenging them to devise original responses to the climate crisis. From Joanne Harris' cautionary tale of a world where 'outside' has become a thing of the past, to Nick Hayes' graphic depiction of the primeval bond between man and nature, each story thrills the senses as it attempts to make sense of a world warping into something unfamiliar. Original, eclectic and inventive, Beacons warns and inspires by offering stories that are as various as our possible futures.… (more)
