Wonder about the world of our great-great-grandchildren? Who will survive? This is the fourth episode of FOREVER YOUNG, a climate fiction/hard science fiction novel in 4 episodes set 200 years from now. Life on earth is headed for extinction and society is divided between the ultra-rich and the rest who suffer the full onslaught of climate change and pollution. Part One explores the costly Age Prevention Programme (APP) and what it means to belong to it...or remain outside – for Alice, a lovely Swiss nurse, for ambitious Lizzie, a talented golf player, the descendant of the mythical Tiger Woods, and for adventurous Jamie, a brilliant reporter for the World and US Post. Part Two, "The Immortality Trip" is the name given to the project to transport a contingent of One Percenters to the nearest liveable exoplanet and settle it. Will Jamie, Lizzie and Alice be able to board that trip? Part Three, “The Hibernation party” introduces the other option opened to One Percenters to survive extinction: take refuge on Antarctica, the last virgin continent. Jamie discovers the dangers of this option when Gary Trude, the head of the Hibernation Party , a despot with Hitler’s dangerous ambitions, threatens him and his friends. Can they escape from Gary Trude? Part Four, “The Longevity Gene” introduces yet another twist in this tormented future world: can a gene make a difference for survival of the human race and why is Gary Trude focused on it? Meanwhile our friends are set to fly to the ‘Forever Planet’, but will they all make it? The novel - classified as both a "hard" science fiction and a climate fiction novel - interweaves several plot lines. The first chronicles the love triangle between Alice, Lizzie, and Jamie. The second covers the only two options left to save humanity, both reserved to One Percenters: one, escape to another pristine planet, a thousand light years away; the other, retreat to Antarctica, the last virgin continent. A ruthless rivalry develops between those who aim to stay on Earth and those bent on escaping to another world. The third follows the murderous attempts of one determined 99 Percenter, Ernie, a retired Blue Beret who is hell-bent on carving a place for himself in the Age Prevention Program. NOTE TO THE READER: This book follows the model of serialized novels, like Hugh Howey's best-selling WOOL , and is published in four separate parts, each self-standing. It is however preferable to read them in order as follows: Part One: Gateway to Forever Part Two: The Immortality Trip Part Three: The Hibernation Party Part Four: The Longevity Gene The omnibus edition, containing all four parts, is also available.

Forever Young offers a wide-ranging survey of the notion of longevity, from antiquity to the present. The author looks at the many manifestations of one of humanity’s most powerful dreams: the prolongation of life and youth with immortality as a final objective. Using a variety of sources – religion, folk traditions, science, literature and art – the book shows on the one hand the persistence of the human spirit (the desire for longevity is revealed as an extremely stable archetype throughout history) and on the other, the innovations specific to each period or culture due to the progress of science and differing ideologies and attitudes. Nowadays, prolonging life and youth has become a major goal of society due to a combination of several factors: the spectacular increase in life expectancy; the advances of science and especially genetics; and, finally, the decline of religious belief in life after death, emphasizing the only remaining certainty – corporeal life. The author, a specialist in mythology and imagination, approaches his subject in an accessible and engaging way.

WINNER OF THE FOOTBALL BOOK OF THE YEAR AT THE BRITISH SPORTS BOOK AWARDS SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2016 WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR 'This football book is about something even more important than the "beautiful game"; it is a story of the human spirit.' - Mick Hume, The Times Adrian Doherty was not a typical footballer. For one thing, he was blessed with extraordinary talent. Those who played alongside and watched him in the Manchester United youth team in the early 1990s insist he was as good as Ryan Giggs - possibly even better. Giggs, who played on the opposite wing, says he is inclined to agree. Doherty was also an eccentric - by football standards, at least. When his colleagues went to Old Trafford to watch the first team on Saturday afternoons, he preferred to take the bus into Manchester to go busking. He wore second-hand clothes, worshipped Bob Dylan, read about theology and French existentialism and wrote songs and poems. One team-mate says "it was like having Bob Dylan in a No 7 shirt". On his 17th birthday, Doherty was offered a five-year contract - unprecedented for a United youngster at that time - and told by Alex Ferguson that he was destined for stardom. But what followed over the next decade is a tale so mysterious, so shocking, so unusual, so amusing but ultimately so tragic, that you are left wondering how on earth it has been untold for so long. The stories of Doherty's contemporaries, that group of Manchester United youngsters who became known as the "Class of '92", are well known. Giggs ended up as the most decorated player in United's history; David Beckham became the most recognisable footballer on the planet; Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and others are household names. The story you don't know is about the player who, having had the world at his feet, died the day before his 27th birthday following an accident in a canal in Holland.
