Description

Arcology: High-tech, highly coveted living spaces with advanced water recycling capabilities. They are largely self-sufficient buildings that can support hydroponic farms and refuge from the desert heat. When rumours of a game-changing water source surface, Las Vegas dispatches elite water knife Angel Velasquez to Phoenix to investigate. There, he discovers hardened journalist Lucy Monroe, who holds the secret to the water source Angel seeks. But Angel isn’t the only one hunting for water, Lucy is no pushover, and the death of a despised water knife is a small price to pay in return for the life-giving flow of a river. In the American Southwest, Nevada, Arizona, and California skirmish for dwindling shares of the Colorado River. Into the fray steps Angel Velasquez, detective, leg breaker, assassin, and spy. A Las Vegas water knife, Angel "cuts" water for his boss, Catherine Case, ensuring that her lush, luxurious arcology developments can bloom in the desert, so the rich can stay wet while the poor get nothing but dust.

For someone who either thinks that global warming is a farce or who doesn’t like political writing generally, or thinks that cli-fi indicates political agenda writing, and therefore didacticism, and therefore stupidity, you’re in a different space. (Urry, 2015) In chapter 18, Michael Ratan compares Maria to Catherine Case. What does he say that they have in common? Do you feel that this is a fair comparison to make? Why or why not? Does it affect or alter your perception of Case’s character or any of the other characters? This involves reading and watching a lot of climate change fiction (cli-fi) and the Fantasy-Hive have kindly given me space for a (very) occasional series of articles where I can share my thoughts and observations. Angel finds Julio at a safe house as he is torturing Lucy, trying to get information out of her as to the location of the senior water rights. Julio has been double-crossing Case and looking to sell the senior water rights on his own to the highest bidder. Angel is forced to kill Julio in a shootout, but not before Angel is shot and injured.
