This site began in the late 1990s and continues to this day, albeit with less fast-paced news. We usually present tidbits that readers send in.
After hosting Beat News for many years, we ran Jack Magazine for a decade. This literary e-zine is now archived at Stanford University. The project then evolved into Moon Willow Press, a micropress with a focus on nature/environmental fiction and prose, similar to the works we featured at Jack. Moon Willow Press publishes 2-5 works per year and now has distribution through Ingram. The press does not just publish books, however. We also host two online projects:
- BC Rainforest: Ongoing blog discussing environmental issues in the province of British Columbia, Canada. There is a series on the Great Bear Rainforest as well.
- Nature Fiction & Cli-Fi Books: Our largest project, this site archives books with climate and other environmental themes. It has a growing database and a community discussion group exploring environmental themes found in literature and the arts.
