A dystopian novel by Martin Godleman
London: the future.
Feminist terrorists have cut the world’s population by 95% with a sustained onslaught of neutron bombing. The earth has been set slightly out of orbit, leaving, according to calculations by those still alive, just 2350 years before it burns up. The surviving élite of women scientists, as a testimony to the event, decide the world’s years will be chronicled in reverse order from that year on.
It is 1909, 441 years after the bombing.
Martin Godleman is a writer, journalist and broadcaster. ‘1909’ is his first published novel.
