I have just launched a book on Unbound
News From Gardenia is a utopian science fiction story, set 200 years into the future in a world where nothing is burned to make anything else, where you can travel to the far side of the globe in a matter of minutes without burning anything and where most people spend their time growing food in highly productive gardens.
A man from 2011 arrives in this possible future, he's an engineer with a slightly nerdy attitude to relationships, he's good with machines but a little inept with people.
When he's told the date, he thinks someone is telling him the time, twenty two eleven. It is only as he starts to see that things are truly different that he accepts he's an 'anomalee,' a visitor from before.
Through the story he not only learns how this new world operates, he also learns something about himself. The whole world has changed, many of the fears of the past have been resolved but the changes that have taken place are far reaching and challenging.
However, the important theme in News From Gardenia is that everything in the book is entirely possible. There is no technology that hasn't already seen the light of day, but there is a gentler, more inclusive society the like of which we can still barely imagine.
