Publisher's Summary

The climate crisis looms. The Earth awakens.

Climate change. The greatest existential threat in the history of human civilization. And our species is the cause.

We must reforge our roots with our only planet. Humanity must choose a side if it is to survive and thrive. 

Join us. Join the World’s Revolution.

Embark on a journey across the planet through 23 stories written by 16 authors from six different countries. From super-powered humans taking down polluting industries to genius inventors creating innovative high-tech solutions to protect their communities, Gaia Awakens explores the gauntlet of climate fiction, sci-fi, and fantasy alike.

And every story occurs in the same persistent universe, weaving a united narrative in the first volume of The World’s Revolution.

The world is awakening, and so are its heroes. Listen to Gaia Awakens: A Climate Crisis Anthology today.

The World’s Revolution was initially backed on Kickstarter, and we’re incredibly thankful for our contributors who made this project possible. Climate change threatens everyone, and we believe storytelling is one key method to inspire people to take action to combat the climate crisis.

But we can’t stop with only stories! Find your way to join the fight against the climate crisis. Doesn’t matter how big or small your impact is; we need everyone in the fight. Stand for justice. Stand against systems of endless exploitation. Stand for a new way of connecting with the world and your community.

We hope you enjoy The World’s Revolution, and may its words inspire you to change the world, too.

short stories build a frightening big picture

This anthology was exactly what was advertised, and somehow completely different from what I was expecting. The impact of the collection as a whole is much greater and more satisfying than the individual stories. It has a feel similar to Black Mirror in that it is a collection of stories that take place in the same future and explore different potentialities of a given technology’s effects, or in this case, climate crisis and how it affects various regions and communities.

Some of the stories are very tightly woven together in that one has the opposite side of a phone conversation from another. Others follow a location or settlement over a period of time. And still otherers are more tangentially related, maybe referencing a company or event from another story. Some show the beginning stages, and others jump farther along the process. Stories take place in cities, rural areas, the ocean. A few barely count as a story and feel more like Ted Talks. In the end, while some stories feel lacking, together the build a strong image of a future world in climate crisis due to the greed and selfishness of big business and corporation and the individuals and communes fighting back with the help of the local flora, fauna, and Mother Nature herself. Some stories veer into magical realism and mysticism. Others stay very grounded in science and logic.

It is an interesting collection. I found some of the political differences peeking out in the stories to be interesting as well. One man’s dream is another man’s nightmare and there isn’t a straightforward response everyone agrees on. I found the complicated, morally ambiguous stories to be most interesting. Good variety that will appeal to a broad range of readers.

Jessica Tipton is a very passionate narrator and it comes across in her reading. She does have a tendency to get a touch shrill in some of the lectures and because of that I would not recommend this for bedtime listening. Very emotional delivery of the stories.

Great Collection

This was a collection of works by different authors with the unifying theme regarding "saving the earth". Although each work was of varying lengths, each composition rang with the author's deep concern and passionate feeling about the need to change the way humans treat the earth in order to save it. I found the stories to be inspiring, thought-provoking, and entertaining. I recommend it to others. Jessica Tipton's narration was excellent, and her expressive voice enhanced each composition in her reading of it. I was given a free copy of the audiobook, and I have voluntarily posted this review.
