Ernest Callenbach's classic environmental novel of the 1970s, Ecotopia, sparked a movement that is still growing around the world. Ecotopians embrace high technology as a tool for preserving and living gently within the natural environment of Planet Earth.

Acclaimed SF author Kim Stanley Robinson has gathered in this volume bright tales of various Ecotopian futures, as well as a few cautionary ones. Writers and poets, from Gary Snyder to Ursula K. LeGuin to Ernest Callenbach himself, have contributed their knowing visions. Other contributors include Pat Murphy, Paul Park, R. A. Lafferty, Rachel Pollack, Garry Kilworth, Robert Silverberg, Gene Wolfe, Howard Waldrop, Carol Emshwiller, Frederick Turner, and Robinson Jeffers.
