The First Leaf
A Collection of short stories with environmental themes set in a milieu following the anthropocene extinction of human and animal life on Earth. It portrays the perspective of plants that had witnessed 5 previous extinctions in history and now dystopian aftermath of the sixth. The translator is a human-algal hybrid with insights from a planterly perspective, of the plant kingdom of which he was genetically abridged. This purely scientific fantasy is meant to capture the pathos of a love story set in the adventure of a detective novel.
