Solarpunk

by M.L. Buchman, Joel Ewy, M. E. Owen, Blaze Ward

Solarpunk is a movement in speculative fiction, art, fashion and activism that seeks to answer and embody the question ‘what does a sustainable civilization look like, and how can we get there? That was the challenge put to the writers, to show #13 me a happier future than the one that grim-dark, post-apocapytic that is so popular today.

Here, the gritty present gives way to the hopeful future, whether your future lies in Seattle, Venus, or some distance colony hidden from the dark forces, where mad scientists build a new Eden.

Come explore visions of a Utopia just out of reach, but looming in front if you, if your soul has the courage to leap.

Be sure to never miss an issue of Boundary Shock Quarterly for the science fiction you want to read.

About the Authors

M.L. Buchman

M.L. Buchman started the first of over 50 novels and even more short stories while flying from South Korea to ride his bicycle across the Australian Outback. All part of a solo around-the-world trip (a mid-life crisis on wheels) that ultimately launched his writing career.

In addition to science fiction, he also writes thrillers, fantasy, and military romantic suspense books. His titles have been named Barnes & Noble and NPR "Top 5 of the Year" and 3-time Booklist "Top 10 of the Year." In among his career as a corporate project manager he has: rebuilt and single-handed a fifty-foot sailboat, both flown and jumped out of airplanes, and designed and built two houses.

He is now making his living as a full-time writer on the Oregon Coast assisted by his beloved wife. He remains constantly amazed at what can be done with a degree in Geophysics. You may keep up with his writing and receive exclusive content by subscribing to his newsletter at www.mlbuchman.com.

Joel Ewy

Joel Ewy is centrally located for your convenience, has a wife and two kids, and took the Liberal Arts concept way more seriously than it was probably ever intended to be. He's a digital philosopher, and also fixes computers, sometimes for pay.

He's just irresponsible enough to start spending a little less time doing that and more time writing, and making weird, anachronistic computer-based art pieces. Joel has an extensive collection of classic computers from the late '70s to the early '90s and beyond, but he's still looking for that free Atari ST to fall out of the sky. Use your best faux German accent, or pretend you're Dr. Strangelove when you say his last name, and you might get it right. (Hint: Ay-Vee)

You can also find him in the Alternative Truths Anthology.


M. E. Owen

M.E. Owen writes science fiction, fantasy and crime, often in the same story.

She lives on the wet side of Washington state, and when not writing, plays with honking big transportation geodatabases, occasionally kayaks and more occasionally throws knives (not all at once, but that would be cool).

Her short work has also appeared in Abyss & Apex, Fireside Fiction, Fiction River, Flash Fiction Online, and elsewhere. Her debut novel, Survival Instincts, a science fiction noir, is scheduled for publication in 2018. You can keep up with her at www.MEOwen.com.
