But ......Don't expect to find any novels listed under the genre of climate fiction, a genre term which this curator refuses to recognize in her obstinate closed-mindedness.
''Science fiction'' is listed, but not ''climate fiction''. How is that possible in 2017 when even Yale scholar Wai Chee Dimock uses the ''climate fiction'' term, as do Nathaniel Rich, David Brin, Kim Stanley Robinson and Jeff Vandermeer. And hundreds of professional media websites worldwide! But not here.
But of course, she would never list "climate fiction" as a genre on her database website since she spent a year on Wikipedia in 2014-2015 attacking and denouncing the rising new genre for reasons only she can explain.
SEE MINOR EDITS AND ADDS in red and blue to see how she covers things up:
Note that her website was originally called www.CliFiBooks.com when the curator still believed in climate fiction and cli-fi and even asked that her novel ''Back to The Garden'' be reviewed and championed that way. She asked me to review it that way. That was then, this is now.
NOTE: Not one book in her 500 book ''data base'' is listed as a ''climate fiction'' novel. Why is that, pray tell? In 2017? THEREFORE: It is an incomplete data base.
[see this sample page for what's going on there:]
*** She must explain herself to the hundreds of academics and literary critics who have seen this blog post now in the last few days and are also wondering why she leaves out the ''climate fiction'' genre.... Maybe the curator has a good explanation. Let's hear it!
