SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE!!!!
The blurb: This novel, set in Alaska in the year 2075, imagines a world in the midst of "climate chaos," with millions of refugees trekking northward.
Excerpt: "The explosion ripped through the evening darkness and jarred the sleeping citizens of Polar City Red awake. Thunderous echoes of sound reverberated off the steep walls of granite protecting the city. The destruction caused by the M-72 LAWS (Light Anti-Armor Weapons System) rocket hitting a supply storage bunker sent an acrid cloud of smoke drifting through the city. Shards of sharp rock and metal flew through the air, smashing against any unfortunate structure near the point of impact. "Several rocks hit the Climatron, cracking one of the reinforced panes of glass.
"Shouts of fear rose into the night as lights from candles and lanterns peeked out from shrouded and shuttered windows. Mothers pulled their children close to them and tried to calm their fears. Men carrying an odd assortment of weapons spilled from caves, lean-to houses, underground bunkers, and geodesic domes. Other men in makeshift military uniforms armed with M-16 rifles and other weapons from long ago wars converged on the point of attack. It was still too dark to see the smoke, but the flames caused by the incendiary rocket lit up a secluded section of dried brush on the hillside." (C) 2012 Jim Laughterwww.jimlaughter.com
