  1. Excellent interview, Drax. Really interesting discussion. I had actually heard of cli-fi too as the woman who bought my first story when she was editor at Cosmos writes cli-fi: Cat Sparks. Her first novel was published recently: Lotus Blue It was pretty well received I think. I’m going to read it soon, it’s on my to-be-read pile. It’s described as “post-apocalyptic” and is set among travelling nomads in a desertified Australia. It sounds pretty intriguing anyway.
