From the author: This story is set in a world of extreme climate change, in a city now abandoned due to extreme climate change and known as the Nightside by those who chose to stay there anyway without the support of civilisation. Ellen, a school teacher, knows she should have seen the crunch coming but let herself deny it anyway. Now she needs to decide her unexpected future. This is a Work in Progress, not part of the four stories already published in Nightsiders .

    There is some more which I'll get to organise hopefully on the weekend, but I warn you, the thing isn't finished. I do say it's a WIP.... :-)
