When Big Waters Come

When Big Waters Come

Science fiction fans have probably heard of Kim Stanley Robinson, Margaret Atwood, and Paolo Bacigalupi and may have read some of their works that fall under the climate fiction, or cli-fi, subgenre. But, there are so many more! The following list highlights my favorites cli-fi stories from authors of color, who come from populations with a higher vulnerability to climate change and a history of exploitation. That background lends to a stark and eye-opening view of what life could be like under "The Big Water," to use Roanhorse's term, and ranges from poetic and thoughtful to action-packed.
