Nothing Is As It Was

A charity collection of short stories and flash fictions on the theme of climate change from established and emerging authors who all care about our planet. Profits are being donated to Earth Day Network.

A schoolboy inspired by a conservation hero to do his bit.

A mother trying to save her family and her farm from drought.

A world that doesn’t get dark anymore.

And a city that lives in a tower slowly being taken over by the sea.

These stories and many more make up a poignant collection that is sometimes bleak, sometimes lighthearted, but always hopeful that we can make a change.

By turns dark, hopeful, bleak, thoughtful, and occasionally hilarious, the stories in Nothing Is As It Was shine a light on climate change in a way that always entertains but also makes you think. A fantastic addition to the emerging climate fiction genre.
