I’m interested in hearing from others who would like to start a dialog about the future of fiction. Please feel free to contact me via email, or leave a comment below. Thanks!

    Liked the Video. Please make more. I, like you want to see a future life where we live in harmony with nature. Much like Frank Lloyd Wright envisioned with his designs. His architecture was a world where nature and man were one. The home was a loving place where we were in harmony with our environment.

    There has been some material that touches on what you are asking. “Silent Running,” the 1971 Bruce Dern movie, is the first example that comes to mind. However we need a world where we haven’t trashed it and it speaks of all the positive aspects of what sustainable technology can do for us.

    Thanks for the video and hope to see much more.

    You’re exactly right, Stephen. It appears the term “eco sci-fi” was coined in the 70s to describe films like “Silent Running” – with very unhappy endings. The old eco sci-fi generally predicted disaster, warning us about the dire ecological consequences of our actions without offering much hope.

    Since eco sci-fi doesn’t have a dictionary definition yet, I’m suggesting we re-brand the term and create a new genre. Call it hopeful eco sci-fi, if you like.

    Whatever you call it, this culture needs fictional depictions of a hopeful, sustainable future – something we hardly ever see. When people see just how beautiful our sustainable future world could be, I believe we will all be more inspired to build it.

    My architectural hero is William McDonough. If you haven’t heard of him, you can check him out at http://www.mcdonough.com/. I intend to post more about him and other interesting sources for eco sci fi imagery soon. Thanks for your feedback.

    Hot damn baby! There just isn’t anything better than surfing the web in the middle of the night and stumbling upon hot sexy cookies such as yourself advocating ecologically motivated Sci-Fi reform! I just watched your video and believe me sweetie, you’ve got that Judy Robinson babe beat every-which-a-way ’till Sunday! I’d even take you over that sexy Klingon chick with the big rack and the forehead that looks like a giant freakin’ walnut! Not only that, in addition to your charming personality, superior intelligence and cunning wit… You’ve got a GREAT rack and a regular size head to boot! But on the other hand, you sound like one of those emancipated female liberal-types that want to save the world one tree at a time… Lucky for you having a great rack and a regular size head goes a long way with a fella…

    But I digress…

    Now for my comment…Well, actually not a comment but more like a wager and here it is:
    I’ve got eleven bucks in my pocket doing absolutely nothin’ that says that you were bare-ass to the whole quantum universe when you took that cat-face picture… Hmmmm?

    Sorry Vinnie Honey,
    But, you owe me $11. You can just donate it to Greenpeace or NRDC or save it to buy a movie ticket when my first feature is released.

    Marcella,
    I just met you yesterday at the NWSG/Scriptshark workshop. I LOVED the video! It feels so good to meet other people who think like I do…I think I’ve found my tribe. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you again soon at the Guild!
    Christina

  7. Marcella Says:

    Thanks, Christina. Great to meet you, too. Welcome to the Guild!

    Marcella thank you so much for your awesome vision and enthusiasm. I told my mom about you and your site (she is a MAJOR sci-fi buff) and she will be hopefully contacting you soon. She mentioned a book I already forgot that if you haven’t read I think is right up your alley (I was in one spelling bee, briefly, in my life and this “alley” is the word I lost on- didn’t make it too far). Jennifer (featured on your home page : ) !

    1. Marcella Says:

      Thanks, Jennifer! Looking forward to our next chat. I always get inspired whenever we talk. Thank you for all you do, which is more than you know.

    There really needs to be a Green science fiction category for books. They do exist out there and I believe readers want to find them. Okay. I’m biased. I like to read them and naturally gravitated to that sub genre when I began to write. I now have four books out in the series and there are more coming. If Amazon would make the category available I know there are existing books and authors to fill it.

    1. Marcella Says:

      So nice to meet you, Holly! I just purchased a Kindle version of the first book in your Sage Seed Chronicles series as a gift for my mom’s birthday tomorrow. Have you ever tried to suggest the Green Sci Fi genre to Amazon? Have you ever seen (or created) a reading list? Do you have a website? How did you find mine? Always makes me happy to meet members of my tribe. Thanks for connecting!

      1. Holly Barbo Says:

        Your question got me thinking. I have contacted Amazon concerning starting an Eco-scifi category. LOL so instead of being sad that they haven’t the category I have asked. Who knows.. Maybe they’ll consider it a viable sub-genre and start one. 🙂 I’ll let you know.

        And as to how I found you..I just Googled Eco scifi and you were on the list. It is nice to meet you.
