There’s no mistaking the terminal phase of irreversible catastrophe. The climate has gone berserk. Rising oceans inundate deserts. Genetic engineers have yet to design the human body to cope with the crud in the air, the water, the food and the soil. Now time has run out. With Earth a lost cause, the satellite worlds twinkling in orbit are prime territory for takeover by the¬† rich, shameless and powerful. They are a single battleground on which the richest and most powerful¬† mega-corps, Kyocera-Merck and Samurai Industries fight, no holds barred. In the artificial pure satellite air or beneath the bilious skies of earth, despite newly evolved bacterial plagues and bribe-taking androids, destinies both outrageously selfish and heart-breakingly familiar are pursued as the planet gasps its last.
