SOLARPUNK CREATURES is out now in ebook and paperback!
Stories by N. R. M. Roshak, Tashan Mehta, Justine Norton-Kertson, Lauren C. Teffeau, Rimi B. Chatterjee, and more.
A newly sentient AI inhabits a Roomba to escape from their research office, and a robotic dog hunts for rain in a drought-ridden world. A murder of crows disrupts production on a solar farm, and a young woman communes with a telepathic fungal network to protect a forest. A suspicious cat follows bees across the rooftops of a solarpunk city, and a rabbit hitches a ride to the Grand Canyon to fulfil a prophecy. The path toward better futures is one we must walk alongside other creatures, negotiating the challenges of multispecies justice. This speculative fiction anthology introduces a whole new cast of more-than-human protagonists: organic and digital, alien and fantastic, tiny and boundlessly large.
What Early Readers Are Saying
Dive into a dazzling world of sustainable futures with this Solarpunk anthology! A breath of fresh air in speculative fiction, it celebrates the diversity of voices and delivers a captivating array of short stories. Each tale unfolds unique and intriguing premises, painting a vivid mosaic of possibilities where technology and nature coalesce. A must-read for those seeking a hopeful glimpse into tomorrow.
A dazzling array of polyphonic voices building lives new, strange and infinitely wonderful. I strongly recommend inviting them all into your brain.
These stories have all my love. Every one was fun, fantastical, and solarpunk (the new steampunk I think). I especially loved the Threadloom, so imaginative and entertaining. This is for anyone that needs some whimsy and inventive fantasy.
This anthology brings out delectable futuristic stories as seen by a new subaltern - robots, animals, artificial intelligence, birds, trees and other creatures who have been rendered voiceless by humans.
