Craig Russell, Canadian Novelist Predicts Arctic Event
Ironically, scientists in Antarctica are in fact right now monitoring the Larsen C ice shelf with a huge crack in it and threatening to fall into the sea any day now. How is that for reality mirroring art?
How did Craig Russell respond when asked how he felt about his accurately future-predicting novel being in the news now?
“Some 40 years ago, as a student, I lived and worked at a Canadian Arctic weather station, 500 miles from the North Pole,” he added. “So I’ve remained interested in polar events, and was both fascinated and appalled by the Larsen A and B ice shelf collapses in 1995 and 2002.”
“To see world events catch up so quickly with a fictional reality I spent years creating has been quite unnerving,” he added.
