Nature’s Warning: Classic Stories of Eco-Science Fiction
Stories of ecological disaster have been a long-term science fiction trend, but are finding new relevance in the current climate. The growing interest in ecological fiction connects to a readership increasingly interested in nature and the preservation of it, as its fragility becomes more obvious outside of the fictional world.
Science fiction has always confronted the concerns of society, and our concern over humanity’s ecological impact on nature has inspired incredible stories for generations. In this new collection of stories from the classic period of the genre, explore both tales of ecocatastrophe and ruin following abuse of Earth’s natural resources, and stories of hope and learning for humankind’s future forays into the new environments of the future.
Featuring rare stories from the science fiction and fantasy magazines in the British Library collection and pieces from some of the most influential writers in the field including Brian W Aldiss, Clifford D Simak, Margaret St Clair and Elizabeth Sanxay Holding.
