Nice head. Whose is it?
Also, I’m trying to reconcile “a steamy short” with the description:
The environment has been failing for years, taking down governments and humanity with it. At the end of one harsh winter, Malcolm Jennings realizes he won’t make it through another in the city.
With a group of friends from a sustainable living group, he prepares to move out and up into the mountains to his grandfather’s old homestead.
It’s going to be a hard life, and none of them really know what they’re doing, but to survive they’ll do what it takes. When a new arrival to the group is brought in, despite all the rules against it, Mal’s heart refuses to say no.
