SALON's Michael Berry on the 'cli fi' genre and Paolo Bacigalupi's telling quote on how he has now embraced it, too!
SUNDAY, OCT 26, 2014 THANK YOU MICHAEL BERRY! “I didn’t think of myself as writing ‘cli-fi’ but I’ll take the label,” Bacigalupi said. ”I’ll take any label that makes someone think they might be interested in my stories.”

Just ask Paolo Bacigalupi, author of the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning”The Windup Girl” and the young-adult novels “Ship Breaker” and “The Drowning Cities”; there is plenty of narrative potential in depicting global warming, rising seas, peak oil, extreme weather and other aspects of a changing climate.
