Book Review: The End of the Beginning by Zachary Eichholz

The End of the Beginning is a mixed bag that would benefit from serious editing and revision. However, it explores compelling ideas and themes that make it a good read for anyone with a strong interest in climate fiction and the idea of a global rescue organization responding to the climate crisis.

Representatives of the world’s nations are meeting in Bonn, Germany on November 6-11, 2017 for the 23rd annual “Conference of the Parties” (COP) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). This annual conference is an opportunity for all of the participating nations to discuss their collective response to the global crisis of anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming.

As government and industry representative gather in Bonn for COP23, now is a good time for those of us who aren’t endowed with great political power or vast material wealth to reflect on the climate crisis and talk to each other about what we’re going to do about it.

Hurricane Relief Sale (Goodbye Miami)

My novel, Goodbye Miami, is on sale for 99 cents now through Monday (9/11). 100% of the proceeds of this sale will go to grassroots relief efforts for Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Goodbye Miami is the story of an American climate refugee who is displaced by a devastating hurricane that leaves the city of Miami underwater. It takes place in the year 2030. Unfortunately, there are real people in the present day who are already being displaced by hurricanes and wildfires that were made more intense by human-caused climate change.

This novel is part of my ongoing effort to write fiction and poetry that inspires serious thought, discussion, and action in the service of climate justice. Hopefully this sale will help spread the word and raise some funds for grassroots relief efforts.

If you prefer to donate directly to an organization rather than (or in addition to!) buying this novel, please refer to the following list of grassroots relief and recovery options.
