These are books I read when I was planning and then writing Dark Blue Rising and Red Sky Burning (the next book, which is out next year), and planning Dark Night Falling. Some very relevant, some less so; some read page to page from beginning to end, some dipped in and out of as needed.
Naomi Klein£14.99 £14.24
This is a BRILLIANT BOOK - if you want to get to grips with the insanity of the climate crisis, it's a good place to start. It played a large part in what I wrote and I'm still writing. Can't recommend it highly enough. Despite the subject matter, Naomi manages to retain some optimism that I really needed when I read.
Not an easy read - but very interesting. Why is the climate crisis written about so little when it is of overwhelming importance to every living thing on our planet?
David Wallace-Wells£10.99 £10.44
I got very sad reading this one - the weight of it all got to me. Took me a while to shake it off
Soooo interesting, this one; gave me some real insight to what I'm writing.
Matthew L. Tompkins£19.95 £18.95
Only tangentially related to anything I'm writing - love this book, though. Great use of historic images also.
Michiel Roscam Abbing£20.00
Erich Hoyt£30.00 £28.50
a useful reference book.

Because sometimes colouring in is just what I need. Actually it's a great thing to do while the mind is ticking things over: keeps your hands busy and mind free.
