15 Great Environmentalist Sci-Fi Novels


Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake

Margaret Atwood may be best known for her hugely influential feminist sci-fi novel The Handmaid’s Tale, but her more recent Oryx and Crake is further proof that Atwood is still a writing force to be reckoned with. It’s a really amazing and heartbreaking novel about a man trying to retrace the causes of a global environmental disaster, while mourning the loss of his two closest friends. Not one for the faint of heart, but is definitely indispensable when it comes to environment in sci-fi.
