#1. The Weathermaker

by Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz

The Weathermaker by Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz is a cli-fi novel with plenty of action.

About the book

Baltimore TV meteorologist Neil Stephenson can control the weather. But should he?

During a light snowstorm, TV meteorologist Neil Stephenson discovers that he can predict more snow on TV to match his prediction. With a power like this, he could be soaring in his profession in no time.
But in a world already struggling with climate change, Neil has to battle his own conscience, recognizing that when he weakens a hurricane in the US, a typhoon could worsen in the Pacific.

This cli-fi genre-bending thriller has the action aspects of Twister--with accurate science, organized crime, and death threats making their way to his doorstop.

About Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz

In 1985-86, Glenn Schwartz became the first "storm chaser" at The Weather Channel and was one of their designated "Hurricane Specialists." He got his nickname in New York City after an anchor saw video of him being blown around during one of his hurricane chases. He lives in the Philadelphia suburbs with his wife, Sherry, and is a lifelong Philadelphia sports fanatic.

Advance Praise for The Weathermaker

"The Weathermaker is both a cli-fi thriller and a who-dun-it, written by a professional TV meteorologist. In this age of eco-anxiety over floods, droughts, and hurricanes, this novel is both a gripping read and an entertaining wake-up call."
-- Dan Bloom, editor, The Cli-Fi Report

#2. The Heatstroke Line

by Edward L. Rubin

This is the yellow cover photo of the book The Heatstroke Line a cli-fi novel by Edward L. Rubin

About the book

Coastal cities are flooding. The US is sweltering under debilitating heat. This is our future in climate change.

In an imaginable future, not so different from our own, coastal cities are flooding and the world is feeling the sweaty effects of record heat.

In addition to being a smart, entertaining novel with sharp characters, The Heatstroke Line motivates people who believe that climate change is real to take action and to induce those who deny climate change to re-think their position.

About Edward L. Rubin

Edward Rubin is a Professor of Law and Political Science at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. He is the author of an academic book titled Soul, Self, and Society, and The Heatstroke Line is his first novel.

Advance Praise for The Heatstroke Line

"Mad Max...The Hunger Games...Waterworld...The Walking Dead. Movies and TV series like these attract large audiences with their portrayals of future society devastated by war, disease, calamity, or supernatural disaster. Rubin wants to place his own cli-fi footprint in the sands of time and aims for this book to serve as a kind of warning flare for readers now and in the future."
-- Dan Bloom, The Cli-Fi Report

by Matt Ritter

About the book

Chronic droughts sweep a near-future US. But what happens when the solution is even worse?

To combat chronic droughts, scientists use genetically engineered bacteria to create regular rain. Only problem? The rain is lethal to humans, and there are only a few people who can withstand it: the rainwalkers.

In the not-so-distant future, war hero Willie Taft's wife is killed during an escape from the administration, and his daughter is on the verge of being screened in the deadly rain. Can Willie save his daughter--and this messed-up system--before it's too late?

Advance Praise for The Rainwalkers

"A terrific novel of climate change and genetic engineering; a first-rate cautionary read set against the backdrop of an all-too-probable future."
-- Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Hominids.
