This project was initially inspired by the book Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements and owes gratitude to its editors, adrienne maree brown and Walidah Imarisha, and all its contributors.

We are also inspired by the book Afterglow: Climate Fiction for Future Ancestors, edited and assembled by the climate justice organization Grist.

This project is created and maintained by the Community Reads Team at the University of Washington Bothell/Cascadia College Library:

We also thank past members Michael Mungin and Kate Roché-Sudar for their contributions.

Denise Hattwig, head of digital scholarship in the Library, provided technical guidance, developed agreement language for the Share form, and advised on Creative Commons licensing. We are grateful for her support!
