Arboreality by Rebecca Campbell

$1.99$18.99

A novella expansion of the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award winning short story “An Important Failure.”

“Campbell doesn’t shy away from the worst possibilities of apocalyptic ecological collapse … but offers a surprisingly hopeful and joyful vision of the future … This compassionate cli-fi mosaic is sure to please genre fans.”
— Publishers Weekly

“I have yearned for a story like this one — ordinary people finding slow, small ways to repair not the whole damaged world, but their own small corner of it … I couldn’t love it more.”
— Molly Gloss, author of Wild Life and The Hearts of Horses

“You’ll see the world differently after reading this slender book—I dare you to come away unchanged.”
— Amanda Leduc, author of The Centaur’s Wife

A professor in pandemic isolation rescues books from the flooded and collapsing McPherson Library. A man plants fireweed on the hillside of his depopulated Vancouver Island suburb. An aspiring luthier poaches the last ancient Sitka spruce to make a violin for a child prodigy. Campbell’s astonishing vision pulls the echoing effects of small acts and intimate moments through this multi-generational and interconnected story of how a West coast community survives the ravages of climate change.
