Because I’ve written (or have found) quite a few lists of ecologically oriented fiction, I thought I’d finally compile them for readers wanting to know about some of the best eco-fiction stories. There’s always the big database, too, where you can search by author, title, audience, genre, and more.

In 2018 I extended this list to focus on more authors around the world rather than the narrower perspective that media was representing at the time.
