THE MELT TRILOGY are novels of speculative science fiction with an eco-fiction emphasis, delving into the relationship of humans to the Earth. K.E. Lanning writes in a wry, allegorical style, challenging readers to explore, from the safety of their reading chair, what might occur if “The Melt” really happened on Earth . . . A Spider Sat Beside Her, The Sting of the Bee, and Listen to the Birds  complete the trilogy.
The Earth warmed. The ice caps melted and the oceans crept onto the land like a cat upon its prey. Storms swept tides farther inland, broke down the low-lying coastal towns, and washed them away. Erosion sculpted the coastlines into a new world.
