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: Salvage by Alexandra Duncan

Salvage by Alexandra Duncan is the tale of a young woman’s journey from subservience to independence. Ava is born into a surprisingly conservative spacefaring culture and struggles to survive when her tribe condemns her. It’s a surprisingly rich and complex young adult tale that includes significant references to climate change. I recommend it to anyone who’s looking for women’s literature, cli-fi, an intriguing look at a conservative spacefaring culture, or just a good read in general.
