Coming soon: The Aviator, the first book in a new series by Gareth Renowden. It’s due out in August 2012, and this is what it would say on the back cover, if ebooks had back covers:

Flying around a world riven by climate change and economic collapse in a hi-tech airship, Lemmy encounters the strange remnants of civilisation – people searching for the singularity, a rocking bishop in his flying cathedral, the last climate sceptics, deep green terrorists, billionaire libertarians in their bubble, and much, much more. Not to mention the goats, the girlfriend with bots in her head and the elixir of life (which is cheese).

That’s a temporary cover, by the way. The real thing is being worked on by NZ comics great Dylan Horrocks. The book will go live at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks and all the rest just as soon as he delivers the final image…
