Concept artist Diego Gonzalez created tons of art based on Paolo Bacigalupi's dystopian young adult novel Ship Breaker, and now he's edited it together into a harrowing, intense trailer. It will make the novel's environmental collapse feel all too real.
Paolo Bacigalupi continues his incredible awards sweep: His young-adult novel Ship Breaker was nominated for a National Book Award for young people's literature. Also nominated, for fiction: magical realism/science fiction maven Karen Tei Yamashita, for I Hotel. [L.A. Times]
