(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.
