A collection of writing, from science fiction through politics to medieval history, with some bits and bobs thrown in for good measure.
A fantasic review of The Caduca from Richard Allday on Counterfire.
Above all, Graham-Leigh has written a book that stands with the unremarked, the overlooked, the dispossessed, whose usual fate is to be written out of history yet whose labour is indispensable.
See the review here.
I was recently interviewed about The Caduca by Francis Sealey of Enfield Climate Action Forum, Enfield Voices and GlobalNet21 (he has many hats). It was so much fun to talk in-depth about the book, even if some of the questions were distinctly tricky!
Come to my online book launch, with the All Good Bookshop, and hear me talk about the politics of the novel and what it all means.

A new story, now out in Theakers’ Quarterly Fiction #67
From the youth climate strikes to the Green New Deal, climate change has moved up the political agenda. Marx’s analysis of capitalism provides the basis for understanding how the system’s destructiveness is driving the climate crisis.
Elaine Graham-Leigh shows how Marx’s ideas explain the climate breakdown and how we can create a society that protects both people and planet. This is a manifesto for system change as well as an account of why humanity faces its greatest crisis.
My review of a fascinating history of black people in Tudor England.
