Imagining Australia’s Climate Change Dystopia – a 2015 update

In early 2014 I used the CSIRO 2007 climate change projections to develop possibilities for our Science Fiction Climate Change Dystopia, which was published at The Toast. This weekend at Continuum 11: Southern Skies, I talked at length about the science behind our climate change future, and I’ve been invited to speak on a panel at the NSW Writers’ Centre Speculative Fiction Festival in July on this topic, so it seemed timely that I update my essay on imagining Australia’s climate change dystopia.

The Dàn Dàn Miàn of the Apocalypse

Hullo fans! I’ve got a story in the newest Review of Australian Fiction. I’m so delighted to have been invited to contribute by Tansy. Review of Australian Fiction does this fantastic thing where an established writer and an emerging writer write stories for an edition and there’s mentoring and fun times. It’s $2.99AUD to purchase the edition we’re in and it’s totally worth it. The Dàn Dàn Miàn of the Apocalypse is a climate change dystopia wu xia, and Tansy has written about fake magical geek girls. Do eeeet.
