“Is This the Real Life? Is This Just Fantasy?”: Speculative Fiction in the Anthropocene

Fire Snow Climate Fiction Inklings Game of Thrones

This month, we’re happy to share our conversation with Marc DiPaolo, Associate Professor of English at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, to discuss his most recent non-fiction book Fire and Snow: Climate Fiction from the Inklings to Game of Thrones. In this episode, we talk about the role that fantasy plays in environmental discourse–both within fantasy literature and in the surrounding fandom.
