Ian Gateman, a bureaucrat, is tasked with finding a buyer for fledgling colony of ecological refugees. As Ian travels to the estates of several visitng shareholders, it becomes clear the shareholders have other plans for humanity's future.

Author Bio

An earnest scribe born at 348.65 ppm of atmospheric CO2. An unreliable narrator, feral but mostly harmless. The Shareholders is my debut novel and it is attempt to wrestle with the human drive to live forever, both figuratively and literally, amidst widespread ecological extinction. I swear, I'm a little less of a kill-joy in person. Keep an eye out for my next novel, Children of the Fall. Coming Fall 2023.
