Finding Comfort in the Apocalypse

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Some apocalyptic or dystopian novels allow people to explore larger issues (or serve as a reminder of the threats facing society). Meanwhile others serve up a heavy dose of humor to remind people that surviving the unthinkable is possible and maybe things aren't as bad in real life. Whether horrifying or humorous, the novels that paint a picture of a grim future can be surprisingly comforting and fun for both author and reader alike. Emily Suvada (This Mortal Coil), Cory Doctorow (Walkaway), Elizabeth Hand (Fire), Douglas Holgate (Last Kids on Earth and the Cosmic Beyond), Andrew Smith (Rabbit & Robot), and Scott Westerfeld (Impostors, Spill Zone: The Broken Vow) discuss approaches with Adron Buske (Fictitious podcast).
