Cloudburst '72 is published in the Cyberpunk 2020 issue of The London Reader. I'm delighted to have my name on the same front page as one of the founders of the cyberpunk literary movement and Nebula award winners like Ken Liu, James Patrick Kelly, and Cat Rambo and Arthur C Clarke Award-winners Gwyneth Jones and Lauren Beukes....and Jakub Szamałek - the principal writer for the game Cyberpunk 2077. Pretty illustrious company for my little story!
But more than that I'm glad to have a platform to explore climate change, sustainability, technology and the human relationships of the future.
The London Reader’s Foreword: This sharply-worded piece of minifiction by Rosaleen Lynch cuts into 2172 and a world ravaged by climate change. Her quick-paced and fine-tuned take on a solarpunk future explores the dense subjects of climate catastrophe and reproductive technology. Despite the state of the devastated world, life emerges when least expected.
