Emergence Vol 3 – Living with the Unknown
*AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER*
After more than two years of instability triggered by the pandemic, apocalyptic visions are becoming a lived reality, as the effects of climate breakdown rapidly increase and failing societal and economic structures reveal the fragility of our modern industrial way of life. Cracks in the system are becoming chasms. So much has been revealed, both the light and the dark, that we have no true sense of what has been set into motion.
What does living in an unfolding apocalyptic reality look like? The stories in Volume 3: Living with the Unknown explore this question through four themes—Initiation, Ashes, Roots, and Futures—moving from the raw unknowing of transformation to a place of rooted possibility. We commissioned new work from writers, artists, photographers, and poets, inviting them to respond to these themes. Within these pages you’ll experience fallen leaves, emerging cicadas, changing Arctic landscapes, reflections on motherhood and beauty, the kinship among trees, inward migrations, and imagined post-apocalyptic realities.
Expected to ship in late spring.
