More about this issue:
"The prose essays in this debut volume of Dark Mountain are courageous and inspiring stuff... They demonstrate that lifting of the veil on consciousness, giving vent to voices that a person like me has been yearning to be nourished by." - Alastair McIntosh
Dark Mountain: Issue 1 is a book-length collection of new writing that goes deep into the roots of our culture, addressing the questions raised by the Dark Mountain manifesto: what do we do after we stop pretending that our way of living can be made “sustainable”? And where do we find new stories with which to ground ourselves, as that way of living passes?
The book brings together a remarkable combination of thinkers, writers and artists whose work engages with these questions. Their essays, stories, poems and images are woven into a conversation which draws on a range of cultural and intellectual traditions. Contributors include John Michael Greer, Jay Griffiths, Ran Prieur, Alastair McIntosh, Maria Stadtmueller, Simon Fairlie, Rupert Cathles, Chris Pak and Jeff Ollerton.
There is new fiction from Nick Hunt, Simon Lys and Paul Kingsnorth, alongside celebrations of great writers whose work offers possibilities for the unknown world ahead – Robinson Jeffers, Ursula le Guin, John Berger.
Poetry from Melanie Challenger, Mario Petrucci, Glynn Hughes, Louis Jenkins, JD Whitney, Adrienne Odasso, Mark Waters, Dan Grace, Charles Davies, Tony Walton, Seamus Brady, Tom Scott, Christine Bousfield, William Haas and Lewis Bassett.
And the first in a series of Dark Mountain dialogues, with Anthony McCann interviewing Derrick Jensen and Vinay Gupta in conversation with Dougald Hine.
