About the Author

Grist is a nonprofit, independent media organization dedicated to telling stories of climate solutions and a just future. Its goal is to use the power of storytelling to illuminate the way toward a better world, inspire millions of people to walk that path with us, and show that the time for action is now.


Praise for Afterglow:
"This sparkling anthology of 12 climate fiction stories distinguishes itself with its hopeful bent. . . . Offering a glimpse at imagined futures across the globe, this is a welcome lift to the spirits to those who may be struggling to see any brightness amid climate fears."
--Publishers Weekly

"The art of storytelling is not only an act of memory and imagination, but one of hope and faith. These vivid and provocative stories represent a dreaming, a collective vision of future worlds where humanity has gathered itself, shared resources and wisdom, to arrive at a place of intentional action, health, and thriving. It is no small feat on the page or beyond to engage in such brave work. The tales of Afterglow offer the glimmers of possibility, the hard choices to be made, and the radiance of worlds not yet known but deeply needed."
--Sheree Renée Thomas, author of Black Panther: Panther's Rage and Nine Bar Blues

"Ultimately, I hope these stories reveal how our imaginations can help build a better reality--not only to serve as a guiding light, but to serve as a balm for these current, difficult times."
--Morgan Jerkins, bestselling author of This Will Be My Undoing
