I am excited to announce that my speculative climate fiction, BAMBOO: A Post-Apocalyptic Odyssey, is being promoted on streaming and cable TV. Here’s the announcement.

Gen’s journey is part Joseph Campbell, stirred with the HUNGER GAMES, and part THE ROAD. If you enjoy thought-provoking novels written in literary style, then you should absolutely check out BAMBOO.Brian Herskowitz, director, producer, author
In this science fiction work, Clark Hilton paints a post-climate-change nightmare in lyrical prose. The story is set in an inundated, savage domain of rough men and flesh-hungry beasts, where unfolds a dark-skinned teen girl’s epic journey to find love in a loveless world:
In a near tomorrow, Gen, just 16, journeys from her lonely family farm in search of a gleaming utopia filled with excitement, new friends… maybe even love. But Earth’s fury tumbles her into a brutish world beyond her imagination. Gen holds the key to saving the world. Can she save herself?
“BAMBOO: A Post-Apocalyptic Odyssey” is general adult speculative climate fiction with literary execution for readers of Blake Crouch, Margaret Atwood, Cormac McCarthy, and Emily St. John Mandel. The tale weaves elements of genetic engineering, environmental disaster, technological failure, loss of history, societal unrest, vain hope, and bottomless despair, amid the coming-of-age of a reluctant hero.
“Intelligent and evocative…written with imagery that comes alive as you read. A fine mix of scientific depth, deep, detailed descriptions, and gut-wrenching emotion. Gen’s journey is part Joseph Campbell, stirred with the HUNGER GAMES, and part THE ROAD. If you enjoy thought-provoking novels written in literary style, then you should absolutely check out BAMBOO.”

“Like Atlas, the protagonist bears the weight of the world on her shoulders. Her Odyssean trek to find love in a loveless world is an ode to the human spirit tested against the repercussions of our limitless mistakes. Inscrutable in its origin, the novel left me asking these questions: Did I just read a history that had yet to occur? And do we have a single, unavoidable destiny? Cinematic in vision, epic in scope, “BAMBOO: A Post-Apocalyptic Odyssey” has all the elements of a feature film, and could make a compelling limited series.”
