Eco dystopia anyone?

Another reading list:



Reading this article from almost 10 years ago in the Guardian where Robert McFarlane mourns the absence of an apocalyptic literature around climate change, it struck me that this has been a fertile ground for YA.

Notwithstanding books like JG Ballard’s The Drowned World, Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood and Liz Jensen’s The Rapture and that admittedly I read a lot more YA than most, these books come to mind:



Julie Bertagna’s Exodus trilogy

Paolo Bacigalupi Ship Breaker and The Drowned Cities

Emily Diamand Flood Child and Flood and Fire

Saci Lloyd The Carbon Diaries and Momentum

And this: After

Recommend Eleanor Arnasson’s thoughtful writing here about SF and politics.

And please read her Mammoths of the Great Plains

In fact read everything in the PM Press Plus series
