Lit Hub goes cli-fi, with a nice article by Siobhan Adcock in Brooklyn, a novelist herself !

Climate change is not fiction, but some of today’s 
most compelling writing about it is. 
Dan Bloom in the mid-2000s for fiction that 
explores the consequences of climate change, 
and the formerly-niche designation has taken on a new popularity. To the surprise of exactly no one who has read a newspaper in the past decade or so, cli-fi has emerged as a robust, exciting movement in modern fiction.
Amy Brady at the Chicago Review of Books runs a thoughtful and wide-ranging monthly column, Burning Worlds, highlighting the best in new climate change fiction....

Comment after article

''And the next 100 years will see more and more cli-fi novels, in many languages, from many countries. I coined the term as a platform for writers, critics, publishers, acquiring editors and agents. See more news links and reviews at The Cli-Fi Report which I curate from my office in Taiwan. Bravo to Lit Hub for standing up for cli-fi novelists working the genre today (and tomorrow, into the 22nd and 23rd centuries).'' - Dan Bloom, editor, The Cli-Fi Report
