Neil E. "Ed" Schilling enjoys reading and writing about climate fiction. He's also written investigative journalism articles. In 1991, one of his articles on the greenhouse effect, and the suppression of ideas by the auto and oil industry, won an award from Project Censored, an investigative media research project. Proving that climate truth is indeed stranger than climate fiction, he lost his home in the Paradise fire on November 8th, 2018. And since writing never paid any bills, he's also a former Community College Instructor and overseas language teacher, now finally retired.
Descripción del libro
Three years after the Great Plague of 2034, constant tornadoes continue unabated. Survivors take shelter in carved out underground cities where corporate elites seize full control. Young Charlie Banks plots his escape from the Chicago Under City. He finds his way through the wind ravaged streets above ground. He begins a long journey to find survivors out west, and find his father. Charlie’s cousin Tom Sentry prepares him for the journey. He provides Charlie with robotic drone wasps that are supposedly for doing census work. But what are the wasp’s real purpose? Charlie’s father will know, if he’s still alive. Charlie finds three young survivors to accompany him on his westward quest. Charlie and his new friends Tajudeen, Giovanni and Suyanna cross a storm tossed Mississippi, outmaneuver a tornado, survive a swarm of killer drone bees, and outrun a nuclear accident. Finally, they uncover the elite’s destructive plan for immortality at the expense of all that is human, and fight back. But are they too late to save the planet?

The wasp hovering in the corner would look mechanical, all black with glowing red eyes. The tornado should look realistic, but all the debris flying in it--bits of houses and cars and clothes, etc, would seem fanciful. The Tesla car speeding down the road ahead of the tornado could show outlines of the four passengers.
Lo que debe evitarse
No fonts needed, jus the image. Stock imagery is ok, building on the image of a tornado for example. Any color is ok as long as it fits the theme.
