Future Primitive: The New Ecotopias

Future Primitive: The New Ecotopias Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ernest Callenbach's classic novel Ecotopia sparked a movement that is growing rapidly around the world. Ecotopians embrace high technology as a a tool for preserving and living gently within the natural environment of Planet Earth.

Kim Stanley Robinson has gathered here in this volume bright tales of Ecotopian futures, as well as a few cautionary ones. Writers and poets, from Gary Snyder to Ursula K. LeGuin to Ernest Callenbach himself have contributed their visions, along with Pat Murphy, Paul Park, R.A. Lafferty, Rachel Pollack, Garry Kilworth, Robert Silverberg, Gene Wolfe, Howard Waldrop, Carol Emshwiller, Frederick Turner, and Robinson Jeffers.

Review:

"Future Primitive doesn't deliver what its title promises, but it still offers a selection of thought-provoking stories well worth reading." Frank Borsch, The Fryburger
