Reckoning 3

Navigating by heartstrings through fire and flood in pursuit of a future.

“At once elegiac and urgent, focused on the great, unfolding injustice of our times: the wanton destruction of a livable climate and biosphere. The complexities and entanglements of the human and non-human emerge here through diverse planetary voices that make an abstract global phenomenon feel as here-and-now and as real as it gets.”
—Vandana Singh, author of Ambiguity Machines and Other Stories

“Stoking both hope and righteous anger, this far-ranging compendium of writings—visionary, minatory, consolatory by turns—faces our environmental future head-on, honestly but without the luxury of despair.”
—Elizabeth Hand, author of Generation Loss and Curious Toys
