Forever Young

Speculative fiction novella. 

‘FOREVER YOUNG' follows the devastating consequences of a remarkable hand cream developed by a group of science students in Lahore. The cream’s inevitable ecological impact leads to a change in balance of power as the product proves far too successful…
In a time when the future seems to promise only extinction, the story presents an alternative vision, where an abundance of life spills out of the pages.

‘Picking his way over the verdant roof, amidst the ever-present cries of birds and the sound of cockroaches crunching under his feet, Jonathan forgot all about the days before, as if he had always lived here in the flooded city, surviving on a diet of reptiles and otters.’
