What is Solarpunk?
While there has been much discussion about solarpunk as an aesthetic, there are few defining texts that put these ideas into practice—which is one reason we felt it was so important to bring this Brazilian anthology to an English-speaking readership. Many of the works of Kim Stanley Robinson fit the description, especially Pacific Edge (1990) and New York 2140 (2017). Other anthologies of solarpunk short fiction include Wings of Renewal, edited by Claudie Arseneault and Brenda Pierson (2015), and Sunvault: Stories of Solarpunk and Eco-Speculation, edited by Phoebe Wagner and Brontë Christopher Wieland (forthcoming 2017).
WWP editor-in-chief Sarena Ulibarri blogged about solarpunk last year, so if you're curious, check out her blog post The Brighter Futures of Solarpunk. For more on solarpunk as a movement and an aesthetic, check out Solarpunks.Tumblr.com.
