       Additional Information  
     
      By the beginning of the 23rd century, Earth’s atmosphere is no longer fouled by chemical smog. Fossil fuels have been banned and all electricity is generated by orbiting Clevite-powered generators then beamed to the surface. Crime has been eliminated. All parolees are encouraged to migrate to the colonial planets. They are promised exotic arrival celebrations and high-paying jobs as incentives to make the long, dangerous trip in Hiber-Stacis. Hoping for a fresh start, Sam Brodin and Janet Scott are two among thousands who travel to the distant planet Cleveland, where Clevite is mined and processed. But this hell-world shrouded in purple haze and ravaged by orange flames holds a future filled with deception and death. Only a desperate act of terrorism aided by the secrets of Fire Lake can help them escape the nightmare and return to Earth to tell their story; that is, if anyone will listen.
