Locus reviewed Sunvault!

The best story here is Lavie Tidhar’s “The Road to the Sea”, an autumnal but mutedly lyrical look at a society struggling to survive and put itself back together after most of the world as we know it has been destroyed by catastrophic climate change. Also good is “A Catalogue of Sunlight at the End of the World,” by A.C. Wise, another autumnal story about the people, mostly older folk, who choose to remain behind on an Earth with a rapidly shrinking habitable zone, while their children set off in generation ships to seek refuge out among the stars. . . . So, a number of strong stories and some good reading here, but there’s no real reason why the majority of the stories couldn’t have been published in an ecological/climate change anthology rather than a specifically solarpunk one.

—Gardner Dozois, “Gardner Dozois Reviews Sunvault: Stories of Solarpunk and Eco-Speculation, edited by Phoebe Wagner & Brontë Christopher Wieland,” Locus, 2 January 2018.

Q&A with Sunvault editors

Hi y’all. We’ve been pretty busy with preparations for Sunvault‘s release this coming Tuesday, and with reading and selecting stories for our next two anthologies (Broad Knowledge: 35 Women Up To No Good and Sharp & Sugar Tooth: Women Up To No Good, which we’ll be kickstarting in the next two months).

We were tremendously excited to get a review of Sunvault from Publishers Weekly, and just yesterday a Q&A of the editors, Phoebe Wagner and Brontë Christopher Wieland, went up at Christi Craig’s blog. We were especially taken with this comment from Wagner:

I hope readers feel encouraged to become engaged, that it isn’t hopeless. We have a hard road ahead when it comes to climate change and social justice. This summer has seen America pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, and I’m still sick over the domestic terrorism in Charlottesville. It does not feel like a hopeful time. I hope the stories, poems, and art in Sunvault will encourage small and large actions, encourage resistance, and bring joy. It’s hard not to smile when I look at Likhain’s bright cover.

—Phoebe Wagner in Christi Craig’s “Q&A with the Editors of Sunvault: Stories of Solarpunk and Eco-Speculation,” 23 August 2017.
