Beacons: Stories for Our Not So Distant Future

by Gregory Norminton (Editor) - £8.99  Oneworld Publications (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781851689699 | ISBN 10: 1851689699

Never before have we been so uncertain about what the following years, decades and centuries might bring. But in this riveting and provocative collection of short fiction, Beacons throws down the gauntlet to award-winning writers, challenging them to devise original responses to the climate crisis.
 
From Joanne Harris’ cautionary tale of a world where ‘outside’ has become a thing of the past, to Nick Hayes’ graphic depiction of the primeval bond between man and nature, each story thrills the senses as it attempts to make sense of a world warping into something unfamiliar. Original, eclectic and inventive, Beacons warns and inspires by offering stories that are as various as our possible futures.
 
All author royalties will go to the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition.
