Aunt Crowfoot lived in a caravan deep in the Misty Dells plantation, part of a national network intended to soak up excess carbon from the atmosphere, in the hope of preventing any more of London being inundated by the English Channel. I liked my aunt, and talked with her often. The only problem was that […]

Tom Baxter had worked it out. He’d always felt guilty at being a bit of a slacker. But that was the wrong way of looking at it. The Earth was in danger not because of people like him, not because of couch potatoes vegging in front of box sets of Game of Thrones, nor retirees […]
