Issue 1 – Spring 2016

(For further details and all ordering options, including ways to receive internationally, please see the issue page at Into the Ruins.)

This Spring 2016 issue comes as a printed 7″ x 10″ book packed with 110 pages of deindustrial science fiction stories, editorials, letters to the editor, book reviews, and a few miscellaneous ramblings and surprises.

From a civilization 1,500 years from now whose religions stem from the Principia Discordia and a worship of commerce, to agricultural societies dealing with climate change and chaos, to ritualistic death by rising sea and the struggles of a small town doctor, the stories in this take a hard look at the destructive ways in which we are currently treating our ecosystems, consider the inevitable consequences, and map out the likely futures we are making for ourselves. The results, rooted firm right here on Earth, are fascinating and compelling.

Issue 2 – Summer 2016

(For further details and all ordering options, including ways to receive internationally, please see the issue page at Into the Ruins.)

This Summer 2016 issue features a ton of great content, with five new and fantastic short stories from Jay Cummings, Chloe Woods, Bart Hillyer, Lawrence Buentello, and the returning G.Kay Bishop. From a distant civilization that cycles through the same ebb and flow of peace and warfare we find littered throughout human history, to a melancholic meditation on our fast-changing world set in 2020 that feels eerily familiar to today; from a love story set in a less energy-intensive time, to a haunting encampment at the edge of dry and dusty ruins; and on again to an adventurous and amusing attempt to deliver a key new manuscript on the herbal treatment of spinal meningitis to a distant library, these stories inspire a wide range of emotions, from meditative reflection on the predicament of our times to delight at unexpected adventure.

In addition, this issue features the debut of “Deindustrial Futures Past,” a new column from John Michael Greer which will be a recurring feature in future issues. In “Deindustrial Futures Past,” Greer will be exploring a variety of deindustrial SF works from the past, and he focuses on Edgar Pangborn for the first go. Justin Patrick Moore returns with a new review, as well, taking a look at Joëlle Anthony’s Restoring Harmony. A new Editor’s Introduction, a variety of letters to the editor, and a very short story excerpt from me round out the issue. All of this comes as a 112 page, 7″ x 10″ paperback with another beautiful cover by W. Jack Savage.
