Excellent essay by Jonathan McCalmont in the latest issue of Interzone. McCalmont proposes a future for SF that returns to to 'a future in which we are confronted by the consequences of the present... science fiction should start preparing us for whatever is coming next. Someone needs to.' As I read the essay, I recalled Robert Macfarlane's call for writers and artists to engage with the anthropocene, which - among other reference points - fixes on Jeff Vandemeer's Annihilation. McCalmont's essay centres on a review of 'Resolution Way' by Carl Neville, which I've ordered and look forward to reading. Right now, as Trump dismantles Obama Care and all references to climate change are expunged from the Whitehouse-Shitehouse website, it's time to get writing!
