Beschreibung

Albert has moved through life, easily taking on different personas. He started as Alexei, then became Al, moved to Albert, and finally, with the help of his new partner, Ernie, settled on Bert. Running from a mob that blamed them for shooting their former employer, they hide on an island in the Salish Sea. They escape with the help of an overpowered electric vehicle that was purchased from a university student who had been experimenting with the car's control systems. Bert adds his own experience in artificial intelligence to what they call Beasty. A growing sentience in Beasty is devoted to saving Ernie and Bert from the mob.
Then Alexei's old Russian friends come calling.
And, Beasty wants to have a relationship with a hoverwing called Cormorant.
In the chaos of the post-pandemic, countries are crumbling, people are moving to what they feel are safer places, and the Earth and its weather are trying to shake off its tormentors.
Bert, Ernie and their new friends must decide on who they want to be.

A past president of the Federation of BC Writers, George was awarded their prestigious Honorary Life Membership in 2016.
Current books and projects include his collection of short stories, plays and a poem - Quantum Events; an ambitious novel called The Antichrist of Stanley Park, which takes place in Nunavut and Vancouver; a book by George and Ron M. Craig called In a Cloud of Sails, which follows the remarkable adventures of a square-rigged sailing ship built in North Vancouver in 1968; and The Giants of Cathedral Grove, about a clan of neandertals who, unsuccessfully, tried to hide from the other humans in a remote part of the world. George has written numerous short stories and many filmscripts, including Shroomtown, Hellenic Digits, Hammurabi, L5, World HQ, Where There's Smoke, and Protocol Omega.
George founded the boutique publishing company called Rutherford Press. Its first publications were Notes To Mother by Capt. Jeff Berry, and Flying With White Eagle by Ben Nuttall-Smith. There are over 15 titles in its growing list of engrossing stories from the West Coast.
