Rem Wigmore –
Rem’s queer solarpunk novel, Foxhunt, has gotten some great publicity, including a starred review in Publishers Weekly but we just as wowed by this piece by one of the editors of Solarpunk Magazine at naming it “one of five essential climate-forward fiction.”
Foxhunt was recently featured in a sold-out gift box at Oasis Scents in Wellington, NZ and Rem is a featured author at
Verb Wellington, Wellington’s book festival. Rem was also featured on the Quilted Bananas Rado Show in Wellington last week.

Stay tuned for more fun stuff coming up!
