Book Reviews

I love reading. I also love writing and talking about what I read. Here’s a growing collection of book reviews written by yours truly. There’s a heavy emphasis on climate fiction, though I may review other genres occasionally. Let me know what you think. If you like it, share it!

Book Review: Blackfish City by Sam J. Miller

Blackfish City by Sam J. Miller is a remarkably creative and compelling story about a floating city in the ocean at the top of the world that survives a global collapse caused by climate change. Colorful characters, a riveting plot, and a surreal-yet-believable setting come together to tell the tale of a strange, alienating, and at times terrifying new world born in the wake of the collapse of society as we know it.

Book Review: Voice of the Elders by Greg Ripley

Voice of the Elders is the story of a young woman who attends a UN youth conference on climate change and is visited by aliens offering to help humanity respond to the climate crisis. She soon finds herself on a journey to meet with these aliens and evade the regressive fossil fuel tycoon who will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo and squash any serious action on climate change.
