On September 29, Margaret Atwood's eagerly anticipated The Heart Goes Last is released. The Unbound Writers will blog about the book in the upcoming weeks, and we'd love you to add your comments about her new book. As a further enticement to go out and get it now, here are some words of praise from Publisher's Weekly:
Back in June, Ms. Atwood also released a collection of nine short stories called Stone Mattress.
Just two reviews:
She also contributed a story to another anthology, Loosed Upon the World: The Saga Anthology of Climate Fiction, edited by John Joseph Adams. This anthology is focused on "cli-fi", or science fiction in which climate change is a primary factor. Of course the MaddAddam trilogy which we are appreciating in three weekly blogs was very influential to this sub-genre. Other contributors include author Paolo Bacigalupi, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Seanan McGuire.

The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood’s dystopian masterpiece about a fundamentalist Christian theocracy that overthrows the U.S. government and enslaves women to be childbearing “Handmaids”, turns 30 years old this fall. The novel remains as relevant—and as haunting—today as it was when it first appeared in 1985.
