Recognition for A Diary in the Age of Water

*UPDATED*

A Diary in the Age of Water (Inanna Publications) by SF Canada member Nina Munteanu has received recognition from two sources now.

On World Water Day (March 22, 2021) it was announced that A Diary in the Age of Water became a finalist in the 2020 Foreword Indies Book of the Year Award in the science fiction category.

Lyrical and dystopian, A Diary in the Age of Water is as much an ode to water as it is a cautionary tale about the dire implications of climate change. 

The Foreword Indies Book of The Year Awards are hosted by Foreword Reviews as part of its mission to discover, review, and share the best books from university and independent publishers.

In December 2020, Nina’s book was also featured on the Yale Climate Connections list of twelve climate / environmental books for the holidays.
A Diary in the Age of Water chronicles the journeys of four generations of women, each carrying a unique relationship with water over a time of catastrophic change. Told in the form of a diary by a limnologist, the story explores a Canada mined for its water by United States, which, in turn, is owned by China.

The list also includes Kim Stanley Robinson’s recent climate fiction Ministry for the Future (Orbit) and James Lawrence Powell’s The 2084 Report. Anthologies and works on non-fiction by the Dalai Lama and Pope Francis are also included in the recommended holiday reading list by Yale University’s Climate Connections.

She is co-editor of Europa SF and currently teaches writing courses at George Brown College and the University of Toronto. Nina has coached writers to publication for several decades using her Alien Guidebook Series writing guides.  Nina’s non-fiction book “Water Is…” by Pixl Press was selected by Margaret Atwood in the New York Times ‘Year in Reading’ and was chosen as the 2017 Summer Read by Water Canada.
