Sunvault: Stories Of Solarpunk And Eco-Speculation Books Pdf File

Inspired by the work of legendary author Octavia Butler (whose novel Parable of the Sower is highlighted on the spirituality page of this LibGuide), Octavia's Brood is a speculative fiction anthology that focuses on the radical imagination of activists and organizers. A total of 20 stories are included and range in speculative genres, from fantasy to horror. While this collection's stories aren't necessarily solarpunk aesthetically, the idea of using speculative fiction to create more positive futures certainly falls under the scope of solarpunk.
