    Tool of War by Paolo Bacigalupi

    Tool of War is the third book in Bacigalupi’s Ship Breaker trilogy. Whilst these books are ostensibly young adult, I would probably have placed them at the older end of that spectrum. The main protagonists might be young in years but they’re certainly old in experience, there’s no real bad...

    Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

    The People of Sand and Slag, by Paolo Bacigalupi

    One of the best environmental stories to be published in recent memory is in my opinion this story by a relatively new author; The People of Sand and Slag, by Paulo Bacigalupi. Set probably in the far future, it is about how humans have adapted to survive in a completely wrecked environment...
