Yesterday was Energy Efficiency Day. I saw a lot tweets on the topic, and the photo above, showing the movie poster for The Insulated Man, was in one of them. That, of course, got me thinking about other classic works of literature related to energy and building science. For example, have you read these other works by Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, and other great building science fiction writers?
- Something Humid This Way Comes
- The Latent Chronicles
- The Green Buildings of Earth
- Stranger in a Strange Attic
- The Positronic Manometer
- The Energy Auditor’s Guide to the Galaxy
- The Crawl Space at the End of the Universe
Beyond building science fiction, there’s a whole world of classic building science literature:
- Fifty Pascals of Solitude
- The Lord of the Blower Door Rings
- Alice’s Adventures in Passivehouseland
- The Thirty-Nine Steps to the Basement
- A Thermal Bridge Too Far
- The Scarlet Ladder
- Wuthering Lights
Oh, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to catch up on all the great works of building science literature! What are your favorites? Which ones did I miss?
