Kim Stanley Robinson
Climate Change Forces Post-Capitalism
Kim Stanley Robinson is likely the most respected cli-fi (climate-fiction) novelist writing today. He has published nineteen novels, including the Mars trilogy, 2312, Fifty Degrees Below, Forty Signs of Rain, The Years of Rice and Salt, and Antarctica. He has been recipient of the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, and Heinlein awards, among others. In an article for the New Yorker, Tim Kreider suggested that Robinson may be our greatest political novelist, as he explores alternatives to capitalism in a range of his novels.
