What are your favorite solarpunk short stories (or short story anthologies) that are currently available in ebook form? I plan on doing some solarpunk binge reading this weekend or next week. You're welcome to share links to your own work as long as you truly consider it to be among your favorites. :) I'll also be checking out the Goodreads list, but I thought I'd ask for personal recommendations too. Thanks!

I was in the car earlier and missed the whole short story thing (I was thinking of novels). I don't think there are too many short stories out yet, though watch Solar Punk Press, which has a call-out for short story submissions, and http://incandescentphoenix.com/solarpunk-dragons.html, which also has a call for submissions.

A Google search on solar punk short stories comes up with some already, here and there.

Here's a really fascinating piece by author Margaret Atwood about climate change, oil, and the present and future of human societies. The inclusion of striking images and the dramatic flair of her narrative transform this from an opinion piece into a compelling work of art. Her different "pictures" (scenarios) are also a helpful framework for climate fiction authors to consider as they write. What "picture" best describes the setting for your cli-fi tale(s)?
Oil! Our secret god, fulfiller of our every desire. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it. But it’s on everyone’s mi…

Not liking the term cli-fi is just an opinion, man. Calling someone irrational or angry for that is a personal attack, and that's against this group's rules, thinly veiled as it is.

I have edited the rest of my reply and set the record straight at eco-fiction.com about such accusations against me personally.

I just posted my responses for the Climate Novelists Writing Process Blog Tour. #MyWritingProcess #CliFi
The Climate Novelists Writing Process Blog Tour is a simple way for cli-fi authors to share their thoughts about their writing process. Each author answers four questions and shares their response on their blog or on Eco-Fiction.com. You can find these four questions and my answers below.

I posted my first two "creations" on Patreon! One is a short story and the other is a novel chapter. Not all of my creations on Patreon will be cli-fi (climate fiction), but both of these are cli-fi. Become a Patron today to read these creations and get access to the monthly Google Hangout!

NEW RELEASE: Goodbye Miami eBook! Kass, an American climate refugee, flees Miami in the wake of a hurricane that leaves most of the city underwater. After moving in with her cousin in Southern Illinois, Kass struggles to deal with her displacement. She hopes to find a way to return to the city that she loves. But thanks to global warming, that city is now underwater. What starts as a search for survival quickly evolves into a struggle for the future of Miami -- and the world.

This is an excellent reflection on teaching cli-fi and a call for more utopian cli-fi. Enjoy!
 
A professor at Temple University uses his experience teaching fiction about climate change to show that stories can change minds.
Many essays and think-pieces about “cli-fi” — as in, climate fiction — speculate about literature’s potential to change …

Bugs and feature requests  - 
 
I think I'm experiencing a bug! I just installed the app for the first time. When I go to my Widgets tab, I can find the Toggle Folder but not the Power Toggle widget with the buttons. I'm using Android 5.0.2 on a Moto X (2nd Generation).

I'm sorry that that happened to you. You didn't deserve to be treated that way. It was a funny video up until that point. Keep dreaming big and I hope you become a legend!

I've been behind on this group lately because I've been busy finishing my new book! Goodbye Miami is the story of an American climate refugee who flees Miami in the wake of a hurricane that leaves most of the city underwater. I would appreciate any feedback, reviews, etc. you have to share. Thanks!
