JVM endorses the usefulness of the cli-fi genre

VanderMeer, 48, sat down with Pacific Standard to discuss that future, his books, and why “anyone” — not just science fiction writers — can write cli-fi. Do you think science fiction and speculative fiction are particularly well equipped to address present environmental issues?
