Glass and Gardens: Solarpunk Winters edited by Sarena Ulibarri
This is an anthology of short stories written by: Sarena Ulibarri, Wendy Nikel, Holly Schofiel, Sandra Ulrich Almazan, Sarah Van Goethem, Steve Toase, Heather Kitzman, Tales from the EV Studio, Commando Jugendstil, Tessa Fisher, Jennifer Lee Rossman, Thomas Badlan, Lex T. Lindsay, R. Jean Mathieu, Brian Burt, Jerri Jerreat, Catherine F. King, Shel Graves, and Andrew Dana Hudson.
World Weaver Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published January 7th.
Many of the stories are set after world disaster. Much of the time it was natural failure due to humans using everything up. There are several same-sex couples in the stories.
What I found most intriguing was that no one gave up. They found other ways to do things. They hid in shelters, grew their own food, and still found joy in life.
From saving narwhals, to trying to bring snow back to Maine, to eating moss, there are many tales of fantasy. These authors used their imaginations.
I found it to be an enjoyable read. All the stories were good.
