    1. If you're interested in reading around the theme of climate change, you might also enjoy The Carbon Diaries 2015. The only problem with these books is that the people who most need to read them are the least likely to actually do so. They preach to the choir.


    2. I'm not sure if I rate this so low because I dislike it so much or just because I know from experience that McGuire can do so much better. In any case, having read another of her stories just today that also revolves--more interestingly and creatively--about environmental collapse (Each to Each), this was too exposition heavy, too heavy handed, too preachy, not enough STORY, and just not all that interesting.


    3. originally posted at: thebookplank/2015eanan McGuire is better know to my under her pseudonym Mira Grant, with which she wrote some very creepy horror books. A while ago I read a short story in the Dead Man's Hand anthology about wasps which was part of her InCryptid stories. It was different that what I read in the Mira Grant books, in a very good way.

California is merely a desert, and humanity moves northward, into Oregan and Washington, and all those displaced people need space. So the corporations attack again, looking to take over preserved forestsd win. A team of scientists work to catalog all the species in the land which is about to be destroyed, saving their genomes and some in [...]


    5. Powerful and growing better by the paragraphAt first I thought oh no, another climate change story (which for me would be preaching to the choir), and it was. However the story grew and became the kind of emotional powerful story I have now come to expect from Uncanny Magazine. Something that punch you in the gut by the end of it. The story jumps between flashbacks and the present where the main character is tracking through the forest trying to preserve animals. The tone is very pessimistic but [...]


    6. Too much sermon, no world or characters I loved. Not what I expect from McGuire's short stories, at all. Available free online from Lightspeedghtspeedmagazine/fic
