Planting the Shell-Bones

Listen in app
SHORT STORY: Living in a flooded lighthouse is probably illegal, but no one has come to kick her out, so she keeps furtively tending the oyster beds and feeding the crows. But when a storm brings an unexpected—and unwelcome—visitor, her time in this final refuge might be at an end.
Planting the Shell-Bones is one of six short solarpunk stories in the Halfway to Better collection.
If you enjoyed the optimistic climate solutions in Kim Stanley Robinson’s Ministry for the Future or the cozy cooperative future in Becky Chambers’ Monk and Robot series, you will enjoy Halfway to Better.
