Chris's book is an imaginative rendition of a post-flood San Francisco, in a post-economic communitarian society. I love how folks get along without money! The two primary characters are wound together in a plot that ties up surprisingly well. I taught this book in a Science Fiction and Philosophy course at the University of San Francisco, and the students enjoyed it. Chris also came to class, and the discussion with him was very revealing. I think this book should be picked up by a publisher with a good editor who could help turn it into a real blockbuster.
