The Island Builders stands alone in a vast collection of apocalyptic, dystopian books.
Imagine coastal dwellers around the world wake one morning to discover islands occupying what yesterday was open sea. Now imagine governments rattling sabers to claim these new lands yet, so far, not a single person has been able to set foot on one of them.
Then people begin to go missing. First by the thousands, then hundreds of thousands, they vanish at an exponential rate until hundreds of millions have disappeared without a trace. When the number of missing reaches critical mass, civilization’s wheels fall off. Life gets hard and mean, fast.
The story follows a rogue physicist, an unstable President, a beautiful TV reporter in a desperate, mean, dehumanized world which ends not with a bang, or a whimper, but with a sigh
