In the wake of the Patriotic War and subsequent pandemic, a city of impoverished survivors is ruled by the charismatic Sensei and his strict environmental laws. Detective Sara Fidelia is called in to investigate a rare murder – a mutilated Mort has been left at the entrance to the walled city. She sets out to find the Perp, travelling through a ruined landscape to the distant rebel town of Excursion – a journey that brings her much more than she bargained for.
"How can we contemplate the not-so-distant future with
anything but alarm when no method both morally tolerable and
practically effective has yet been discovered for reducing the
population of the world to a tenth of its present size and
keeping it there?"

Available from all bookstores (real ones and on-line, too). But because independents don't or can't keep titles on their shelves, the quickest and most convenient way to get the book may be Chapters-Indigo online.

|From Caroline Adderson, novelist, author of The Sky
is Falling, Ellen in Pieces, and principal author of
the Vancouver Vanishes book and FB page:
"2050 is a witty and subversive page-turner packed with sly commentary on our city and culture today, as any decent futuristic story must provide. The only thing that slowed me was the pleasure I got in identifying the locations in Kluckner’s transformed Vancouver. By the end I couldn’t decide if I was sorry I’d be dead by 2050, or glad."
