The Consequences of Global Warming

Announcing the publication of The Hampshire Project, the third in the series, RESILIENCE: A TRILOGY OF CLIMATE CHAOS
Publication date Earth Month, April 2017

Reading at Porter Square Books on April 27. 7 p.m.

Another gripping eco-thriller!

Testimonial for The Hampshire Project: 

“If you are prone to believe that even severe climate change will be well managed, that future governments will calmly move cities inland, providing good jobs in construction and engaging our better selves, Kitty Beer will turn you inside out. The compelling, gutsy characters, the cults and marauding private armies, the Prudential Tower poking out of the Boston Sea and other vivid landscapes, are horribly credible. If Beer’s trilogy, set in the 2040s, 2060s, and continuing here in the 2080s with The Hampshire Project, can’t inspire you to action, nothing will.”

Praise for What Love Can't Do, the first novel in the trilogy:

"Well-written, engaging and thought provoking."
-- Susan Henderson, Night Train Magazine    
"Beer's prophetic look at the future seems not only eerily plausible, but entirely possible."     
-- William Routhier, Facets magazine

What Love Can't Do

The first novel to portray the human consequences of global warming!
       "The title of What Love Can't Do, a new novel by Kitty Beer, sounds like a bodice ripper, but it's not. Well, there is plenty of bodice ripping going on, but that's not exactly the point. Love portrays the chaotic after effects of global warming and examines how people manage not just to survive, but also to keep their humanity, passion, and families intact."   More
