Novel Launch Date
As a first time novelist, I’m pretty thrilled to announce that the first draft of The All-Inclusive Resort at the End of the World is now complete, and we can confirm the novel will be released in just 30 days, on March 15th.
So, what’s it all about?
The Resort at the End of the World revolves around the geopolitical events that occur due to runaway global warming, in the year 2101. In addition to the damage wreaked upon the planet and human society by the natural impacts of global warming, the world has been shaken by decades of geopolitical instability, brought on by mass starvation, the movement of more than a billion climate refugees, and constant warfare fought over increasingly scarce resources.
The story picks up as a world war is brewing between powerful countries in the ‘hot zones’ – like the US, China, and Brazil – as they fight for resources held by cooler countries that now control most of the world’s water and agricultural production. As the world’s superpowers gear up for a global conflict, a group of diplomats, reporters and politicians race desperately to find a road to peace, and to forestall the grim possibility of a nuclear conflict.
Much of the story happens in the Falkland Islands, home to one of the world’s most exclusive resorts and a major ecological protection area, where the Paloma Beach Resort is playing host to a secret peace summit between the warring nations.
The book isn’t just about climate change, but more about the very real danger that climate change and the resulting scarcity of resources could lead to an extinction level nuclear exchange. While I’m certainly writing this book to entertain, I also hope it will help focus people’s attention on both the need to combat climate change, but also on the geopolitical conflicts we are already facing due to the impacts of global warming.
While The All-Inclusive Resort at the End of the World is a work of fiction, I feel the types of events outlined in the book are all too possible, unless we as a species unite to both combat climate change, and support those nations and people who are most affected.
I hope you enjoy the novel,
Sincerely, Gary Symons
