The Aviator

The Aviator, by Gareth Renowden ($13.50, pb)

AviatorAmazon:  Flying a hi-tech airship around a planet riven by climate change and economic collapse, our hero encounters the strange remnants of civilisation – the people searching for the singularity, the rocking bishop and his flying cathedral, the last climate sceptics, the deep green terrorists, the billionaire libertarians in their bubble, and much, much more. Not to mention the goats, the girlfriend with bots in her head and the elixir of life (which is cheese).
