A riveting and provocative collection of short fiction, Beacons: Stories for Our Not So Distant Future throws down the gauntlet to award-winning writers, challenging them to devise original responses to the climate crisis. From Joanne Harris' cautionary tale of a world where 'outside' has become a thing of the past, to Nick Hayes' graphic depiction of the primeval bond between man and nature, each story thrills the senses as it attempts to make sense of a world warping into something unfamiliar. Original, eclectic and inventive, Beacons warns and inspires by offering stories that are as various as our possible futures.
All author royalties will go to the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition, the UK's largest group of people dedicated to action on climate change and limiting its impact on the world's poorest people.
