Good science fiction is full of interesting ideas. This story has plenty of good ideas, humour, and potentially interesting characters, but really needed a firm hand in the editing. As it is, the reader has to wade through a lot of rambling stream-of-consciousness verbiage to get to the good stuff, and I suspect most people wouldn’t.
This is set on Earth in the near future. The discovery of a new, non-polluting replacement for oil as fuel has theoretically addressed climate change, but has led to a single corporation dominating the world economy. And increasing solar radiation (or something) has led to everyone becoming nocturnal. Then various characters discover something fishy is going on with a spaceship building program.
Includes plenty of swearing and sex.
