A BRAVE NEW WORLDBy the mid twenty-first century civilization is experiencing a hangover from the boom times and rampant consumerism of previous decades. Food prices and unemployment are at all-time highs, while emergency food and water and energy rationing are the norm.
To reduce humanity's ecological footprint, and stave off a worldwide catastrophe, governments around the globe begin to miniaturize segments of their populations and relocate them to mini-utopias free of poverty, hunger, and for the most part, crime.
When Bob and Maureen Smith lose their life savings in a bad investment, and their only daughter a month later, they take the plunge and miniaturize. Yet when Maureen backs out at the last moment, Bob finds himself on his own in the strange new world--and discovers it's not all it's cracked up to be.
