The new year’s finally here! You may have already celebrated with some of your favorite New Year’s Eve traditions: counting down to midnight, drinking champaign, making resolutions for the new year. Now that 2019 is in full swing, I invite you to join me in one of my favorite year-end traditions: looking back at the best examples of the past year of climate fiction.

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.
