Solarpunk ideas are close to my heart. I would love to read more good fiction about a sustainable future, but it's hard to find it. Sure, there are anthologies I approach with plenty of hope, just to be disappointed shortly after. I feel too many solarpunk writers focus too much on ideas and not on characters. It doesn't work. It's by making a character relatable, or the story fun and entertaining you'll engage the reader and let him think about ideas explored in the plot.
Even though some stories were weak, I think Ecopunk! is the best solarpunk anthology on the market. It explores important issues and contains some excellent stories. My favorite ones are:
The Wandering Library by D.K. Mok - after finishing it I bought two books by DK Mok and I plan to read them shortly.
Milk and Honey by Jason Fischer
The Butterfly Whisperer by Andrew Sullivan
Monkey Business by Janeen Webb - I need more stories about Captain Brunelli.
Island Green by Shauna O'Meara
