“The Call of the Wold” in Glass and Gardens

SF Canada member Holly Schofield‘s story, “The Call of the Wold,” appears in the just-released Glass and Gardens: Solarpunk Summers anthology, published by World Weaver Press, edited by Sarena Ulibarri.

As the introduction says, “Solarpunk is a type of optimistic science fiction that imagines a future founded on renewable energies. The seventeen stories in this volume are not boring utopias—they grapple with real issues such as the future and ethics of our food sources, the connection or disconnection between technology and nature, and the interpersonal conflicts that arise no matter how peaceful the world is.”

Tangent Online says that Holly’s story is “told in a lightly humorous style with a great deal of wordplay…an enjoyable story with an appealing main character.” Publishers Weekly says “this anthology is a welcome relief from dystopias and postapocalyptic wastelands, and a reassurance that the future need not be relentlessly bleak” and called Holly’s story “thoughtful, even radical.”
