Yes, this is climate fiction at its corea sci-fi sub-genre that seems to be everywhere at this momentbut theres an unabashed earnestness to Appleseed, a love even, for the natural world, that combines with Bells lush prose to make this book much more than simple cli-fi, to turn it into a sort of love song for our dying world. Like any good love song, Appleseed is part, or perhaps even mostly, tragedy.
