In a recent blog post of yours, titled ''The End of Nature and Post-Naturalism: Fiction and the Anthropocene'' on December 30, 2015, you brought up some very good points about the new literary genre of cli-fi, which for some reason still occludes your understanding, but that is okay and understandable since you are coming at cli-fi from the point of view of a literary critic and newspaper book reviewer Down Under with a deep background in science fiction. So when you knock cli fi, you do so in cahoots with Niall Harrison, another fine literary critic with deep roots in science fiction, and also a very good writer who you refer to out of friendship as ''a characteristically thoughtful and perceptive reviewer'' at the sci-fi magazine Strange Horizons.
''Response to my piece about fiction and the Anthropocene from [Dan Bloom via HIS BLOG POST] is worth a read.''
- ''So as I've said from the beginning, not just room for both approaches but important we keep talking about these questions.''
- ''Also think there are lots of different approaches, which is excellent, and sign people are thinking about it all.''
- ''But what matters is people are writing and thinking about it, and discussion of how we think about it is part of process.''
