Bullet Points asked me to write about apocalypses for their July issue. In this essay that is ostensibly about Biomutant, I interrogate why I am pulled to certain apocalypse fictions. From nature writing on the Everglades to criticism of the cult classic OVA of Yokohama Kaidashi Kiko to a discussion of phosphate mining and 3/11 (not in that order), this essay goes places. I’m very proud of it, and I’m so happy it was well received. It’s always nice to publish the next thing you know you’ll go to when you need to share your work.
Below is a picture of one of the scenes I describe in the Everglades, which words will never do justice.
