Imagine a world in which nature has lost patience with humanity. The wild is done waiting for humans to change their ways. Nature is ready to take matters into her own hands…

And she is angry.

In this new anthology, twenty two diverse authors explore what nature's vengeance might be like, and how humanity could adapt and change, giving these stories of climate change and disasters a center of hope. Within these pages, you will meet

A grandmother who promises both bitterness and love.

A desperate husband seeking to supernaturally win back his wife.

Cafe patrons facing down vigilante trees.

The last remaining flight attendants in Singapore after a climate apocalypse.

The recipient of a mysterious gift, who might change or doom the future.

And many more.

Here, nature has a voice; what will you do once you hear what she says?
