For this month’s Burning World's cli-fi trends column, I spoke with Sam J. Miller, author of a new novel titled Blackfish City. This book, like Kim Stanley Robinson’s New York 2140, looks to a future time when Earth has been ravaged by climate change and humanity is barely hanging on. But unlike Robinson, Miller imagines New York City long gone. In fact, most of the world’s epicenters are gone, and in their place is a new metropolis called Qaanaaq. It’s a floating city in the Arctic Circle, a last bastion of civilization after the so-called “Climate Wars.”
