Tom Norwood's done an amazing job of pulling together a lot of my favorite complaints about humanity and modern society; theorized a very probable path to collapse; and has a provided a small glimmer of hope for a better future.

The plot involves global warming, disease run amok, governments run (some openly, some covertly) by the one-percenters for the one-percenters, have-not nations eyeing the haves for the remaining scarce resources, and biological warfare.

In the midst of all this Dr. Michael Khan sees a chance to improve the human race, both by making them more resistant to disease—whether natural or man-made—and by making them more co-operative, so that they think first of what's best for mankind, rather than what's best for themselves.

As one might expect, Michael Khan—being a brilliant scientist with a plan—can be reasonably accused of having a bit of a god complex. He knows what we need, and he's not always very smart about the politics of achieving his aims. But his heart's in the right place: while he wants to save the planet, his first priority is to save the woman he's loved for most of his life.

The only question is whether the human race is willing to be saved, and whether Khan ultimately thinks they're worth saving.

Pointer Stop now accepting editing assignments

With the new normal in publishing being self-publishing, and having read too many books recently that are sadly in need of editing, I've decided that it's definitely time to put my money (that is, my career) where my mouth is, and offer myself as a literary editor. As I've told many first-time writers, you simply can't afford to put an unedited book on the market. 

If you're interested in editing services, contact me at editing@pointerstop.ca.

If you honestly feel you cannot possibly afford an editor, contact me and we'll try to work something out.
