Reviews

'These tremendous and inspirational stories paint far better pictures of what we need to do to save Planet Earth, than any number of facts, figures and graphs.' Bill McGuire, Author, Hothouse Earth: an Inhabitant's Guide.
 
 'If we are to build a future fit for the next generation, we must show a positive vision of what that future looks like. And this anthology of compelling, solution-focused climate fiction does exactly that. A better world is possible – and literature like this can help make it happen.' Caroline Lucas MP
 
'There's an abundance of imagination in these stories; they'll make you think again, and in new ways, about the predicament of the planet and its people.' Bill McKibben, author, climate activist, and founder of 350.org.

 'Today's Climate Crisis is down to a lack of imagination, blinding us to the horror story bearing down on us today. We now need to use our collective imagination to avert that nightmare – and 'No More Fairy Tales: Stories to Save Our Planet' shows us exactly how to do that.' Jonathon Porritt, author and campaigner.
 
 'We make sense of our world not through data but through stories. That's why we need more narratives like the ones here in this brilliant, evocative collection. Read, enjoy and share.' Owen Gaffney, Author, optimist, global sustainability analyst at Stockholm Resilience Centre and Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.

Denise Baden is Professor of Sustainability at the University of Southampton and has published numerous book chapters and articles in the academic realm. She wrote the script for a musical Fidel that was performed in Southampton and London in 2016, and has written three other screenplays. This is her first novel. Habitat Man was inspired a real-life green garden consultant who helped make her garden more wildlife friendly.  Denise set up the series of free Green Stories writing competitions in 2018 to inspire writers to integrate green solutions into their writing (www.greenstories.org.uk). Habitat Man began as an effort to showcase what a solution-based approach might look like, and then took on a life of its own. In between teaching and research, she is now working on the sequel.
