I feel like I’m on a roll. I’ve had two of my climate fiction stories published in the last month. On June 22, my story, “Chasing the Zephyr Prize,” will be published in Save the World: Twenty Sci-Fi Writers Fix the Planet. Published by Other Worlds Ink, it’s an anthology that’s takes a more positive look at a future warmed world.
“Dive in and find out how we might mitigate climate change via solar mirrors, carbon capture, genetic manipulation, and acts of change both large and small,” says the back of the book. In my story, the owner of a small shipping line races to earn a $100 million prize for using wing-sails, an alternative to dirty bunker oil for powering his ship.
The second story, “The Trials of the Thorsten Haugen,” features some of the same characters in “Chasing,” but takes place earlier, as the ship owner tests his new propulsion system. The story is published in the online magazine Little Blue Marble, which specializes in fiction and non-fiction about climate change.
