1/2986 is an intense and compelling climate change thriller. As the book (and series) progresses, the emphasis is more on the thriller aspect than on the climate. Even so, since the main premise of the plot and setting revolves around a post-collapse scenario explicitly linked to climate change, this novel is an excellent choice for any climate fiction fans who love a good thriller.
New York 2140 is an ambitious novel about what New York City will be like in the year 2140 if human-caused global warming continues unchecked. If you’re interested in New York, global warming, science fiction, political fiction, or all of the above, I strongly recommend that you read this novel.
On April 29, in honor of the People’s Climate March, I’ve decided to give away free Kindle edition copies of both of my climate fiction (cli-fi) novels!
I’ve enjoyed other Paolo Bacigalupi books, but I initially put off reading Ship Breaker because it was listed as young adult fiction. When I read that it was being made into a movie, though, I decided to give it a try. I’m glad that I did!
