'Cli-fi' is on its own now. Godspeed!

My PR work with the cli-fi genre has pretty much come to an end, and I happy to know and to see that it doesn't need me anymore. Very capable people in the fields of literary criticism, academic, book reviewing and novel writing (and film directing) are on it now and doing some very good A++ work with the genre. I've retired and am living life in the slow lane, far from the madding crowds (and the maddening crowds, too) and I'm glad to see the cli-fi meme taking on a life of its own, with dozens, hundreds, thousands of boosters and fans around the world. Especccccially the writers, who are doing the heavy lifting and will continue to do so into the 2020s and 2030s and 2040s ...and beyond.

The 21st century belongs to cli-fi. That is to say, cli-fi belongs to the 21st century.

A large global army made it happen and it will continue to go on happening long after most of us reading this blog post today are dead. Long live cli-fi!

Glad to have made your acquaintance!
