    Meine erste "Anthology", Sammlung aus diversen Kurzgeschichten zum Thema.Über das Thema Solarpunk bin ich erst vor einiger Zeit gestolpert und war begeistert. Eine nette Übersicht gibt es hier. In dieser wird auch dieses Werk hier aufgeführt. Entsprechend gespannt war ich. (Die Tatsache, dass alle Autorinnen weiblich sind und das perfekt in meine AAA-Challenge passte, war ein tolles Extra).Wie vermutlich für Sammlungen (von mehrere Autoren/innen) üblich, war die Qualität der Geschichten se [...]

    Featured on All Our Worlds!I’ve fallen in love with solarpunk. It combines the best of nature, technology, and human cooperation in settings where harmony is valued over profit and prejudice has long ago been defeated.Solarpunk is a vision of the future that couldn’t be more different than dreary visions of war-torn dystopias ruled over by oppressive governments. It’s a return to the hopeful visions of 60s science fiction: worlds built by environmentalists and social justice activists, eng [...]

    I wasn’t too sure what solarpunk was about, but wow, this is totally a thing I want to see more of. Sci-fi + fantasy with an emphasis on environmentalism and a bright future? Yes, VERY EXCELLENT.This anthology in particular was a joy to read. “Wings of Renewal” contains 22 stories with a focus on dragons in solarpunk, and it’s filled with a wide diversity of genders and sexualities and ages and relationships. Not every story grabbed me, but they all had a sparkle to them.My favorite of t [...]

    Disclaimer: I'm IPB's freelance proofreader, but I did not work on this book--though it'll always be special to me because an article about it is what told me of IPB's existence in the first place. I love the ideas behind solarpunk, and I love dragons, so naturally I liked a lot of this book. I had to read in chunks so stories wouldn't blend together (as seemed possible with such specific criteria) but on the whole, very well done.

    The theme of the anthology is a super fantastic idea - I mean, solarpunk AND dragons, best combo, right? - but perhaps it would work better in a novel, with a fully developed cast. Somehow the stories themselves, despite being full of cool & inspiring ideas, ultimately failed to resonate with me/make me go WOW. Plus those cool ideas often seemed too in-your-face, as in the story revolved around insistently pointing them out, little kid style, instead of going somewhere.Some of my favourites: [...]

    As with all anthologies, A few have potential, a number are simplistic, most are badly written and boring.And as with most white western authors, the amount of (casual) racism is overwhelming. I don't necessarily want to point fingers because I'm sure it is most likely ignorance, rather than ill-intent, but the exoticization of women of other cultures under the guise of representation is one disturbing example. It also very often shows in sf/f in the simple use of "exotic" names, and this anthol [...]

    I don’t usually take a chance on buying books that I haven’t read first, but I had some gift card money so I thought I’d buy it on . Normally anthology books don’t really excite me and the one or two stories I like still don’t make it worth the effort of buying the book.With this one I don’t think there was a single story I really disliked. There are a lot of stories I’d give different ratings to, but nothing fell below three stars for me. My favorite story has to be the very first [...]


  • Claudie Arseneault

    Obviously, as an editor of this anthology, I LOVE all the stories within. I'm proud to be bringing more solarpunk literature into the world, especially mixed up with dragons!To me these pages are an exploration of what solarpunk could be, of what happens when you rethink dragons to fit sustainable worlds where nature and community take precedence.I do hope everyone will enjoy the dive as much as we did. :)

    I love the general idea of solarpunk - the hopefulness, the outlook, the ideology and the diversity. However, I am still waiting on some story that would totally blow me away. This volume had some stories which show great potential - others not so much. Some stories were built around a single idea that was not even enough to hold up a short story. And in one or two stories I felt the writers should have given the diverse aspects more thought.However, instead of focusing on the negative, here are [...]

    This collection is a delightful, bountiful buffet of ideas. The various authors have contributed many different interpretations of dragons — as hope-inspiring beings of magic and/or technology, helping and cohabitating with humans of all stripes. Most of the major characters are female and/or queer (even some of the dragons!), and the humans are often PoC and/or followers of non-Christian faiths. My favourite stories? Megan Reynolds’s “Petrichor” is a standout; I definitely think those s [...]


  • Lindsay Bee

    Overall I really enjoyed this collection. Though some stories stood out more than others I think as a whole, this is a really strong anthology. I love solarpunk and I think dragons fit very well into the genre; we have so many negative, pessimistic stories of the future it's nice to read hopeful versions of what humanity might achieve. Theme anthologies sometimes end up sounding sort of same-y, but I thought the story selection for this one had enough variation that it never fell into a rut. Som [...]

    Overall, an original and worthwhile collection of a type of story I'd love to see a lot more of. Standouts for me were:"Community Outreach with Reluctant Neighbors" by Kat Lerner"One Last Sweet" by Claudie Arseneault"The Last Guardians" by J. Lee Ellorris"Refuge" by Mindi Briar"The Shape of the Sun" by Marianne L.D. Drolet"Lost and Found" by Brenda J. Pierson

    I loved so many of these stories


  • Danielle Shipley

    Though generally diverse, too large a percentage of the twenty-two titles struck me as having in common an incompleteness, lacking a solid sense of beginning, middle, and end – more vignettes than full, grounded stories. With the frequent absence of well-executed tension and an excess of characters flatly portrayed, I was bored and frustrated for much of the book. However, a handful of the tales did leave a favorable impression. My notes on these, scribbled down as I read, were as follows:“L [...]

    The stories are all pretty clearly by authors just starting out. There's some potential there, but the storytelling is not great. :-/
