''Burning Worlds'' is Amy Brady’s monthly literary column dedicated to examining trends in climate fiction, or “cli-fi”
Brady is a remote opnline editor at a literary website in Chicago and in February 2017, upon encouragement from Bloom earlier that year she started writing a new monthly literary column devoted to cli-fi novels.
Brady says such novels and movies come in lots of different styles. For example, writer Kim Stanley Robinson’s New York 2140 depicts a city that has been drastically altered by sea-level rise.
Another author, Barbara Kingsolver, tells a more subtle story in Flight Behavior. It’s about a woman who discovers a colony of monarch butterflies near her home in Tennessee, their migratory paths changed by rising temperatures.
Brady: “The one thing that they all have in common is that climate change plays some role in the lives of the people that they depict.”
Brady says that a novel about climate change does something for readers that a news article cannot.
