Android Press's signature publication, Solarpunk Magazine is a bimonthly online publication of radically hopefully, optimistic, utopian science fiction and fantasy.

 

Through short stories, poetry, art, and nonfiction, the magazine explores what the world might look like if humanity solved major challenges like climate change and white supremacy, and created more sustainable and balanced societies in which humans, nature, and technology exist in harmony..

Real Sugar is Hard to Find

by Sim Kern

A collection of stories for reluctant witches, sugar smugglers, and soil thieves bravely exploring the intersections of deep-rooted and timely issues such as climate change, reproductive justice, queer identities, and family trauma. Whether fantasy, science fiction, or terrifyingly close-to-home, the worlds of these stories are inhabited by flawed characters whose lives are profoundly impacted by climate change and environmental degradation.

Arranged in a progression from dystopian to utopian worlds, the stories chart a path from climate despair towards resilience and revolutionary optimism. Even in the bleakest of futures, however, Kern offers reasons to hope, connect, and keep fighting for a better world. Like Kelly Link’s Magic for Beginners or Karen Russell’s Vampires in the Lemon Grove, Kern's stories are unflinching, intimate explorations of trauma and our deepest fears, rendered irresistible through the infusion of fantastic speculative elements and a dark sense of humor.
