Beacons: stories for our not so distant future

21 great storytellers, including Joanne Harris, Toby Litt, Laurence Norfolk, Liz Jensen and A L Kennedy bring their best writing to one of our biggest issues.

Throughout history, writers have been spokespeople for social change, and with global warming a real threat to our planet, now is no different. With specially commissioned stories, many of the UK’s foremost writers address our most pertinent problem.

From Joanne Harris’ techno-dystopia, where parks and bees are no more, to the soldiers paroling the ravaged Welsh landscapes of Jem Poster’s ‘Visitation’, we’re shown our world, altered. Toby Litt uses the analogy of a knickerbocker glory to explain what we’re all about, and Nick Hayes tells the tale of a mysterious woodland hart through striking illustrations in his graphic story.

This is a stunning collection of writing that will shock, amaze and entertain in equal measure.  All royalties go to Stop Climate Chaos.
