Mammoth Books presents Life in the Anthropocene

Indebted to Gaia Vince’s New Scientist article ‘Surviving in a Warmer World’, Paul di Filippo’s story depicts the life of Aurbindo Bandjalang in the climate change-ravaged planet of the Anthropocene Age. A member of the Reboot Civilisation, ‘AB’ is part of a new configuration of humanity, nine billion people crowded together in densely populated, high-rise areas on the quarter of the Earth’s present-day land mass that remains above water.
