Home Veliode Saga Simulacra Navigans Triple Taiga Trouble Solarpunk Short Stories Who am I anyway? Links & Neighbours

What is Solarpunk?

I could try explaining it with my own words (I have way too many on the topic), but that would take way longer than any story you can find on this page. Instead, I will point you to Andrew Sage's short video that really captures the core of the artistic and political movement that wants a better world (🇮🇹 con sottotitoli in italiano!):

Currently, short stories are downloadable in PDF format only. I am considering having links to text pages from which they can be read more easily, but at the same time I would like to avoid AI scraping. Please send me a message if you have suggestions or specific requests and I'll try to accommodate them as best as I can. Stories should be for everyone.
