#1. The Weathermaker
by Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz
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" SchwartzIn 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
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. RubinEdward 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.

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?
