       Additional Information  
      Rain is a thing of the past. Radio-active waste has stopped the sea evaporating. The sun beats down on the parching earth, and on the parching spirit of man. A warped new humankind is bred out of the dead land-bitter, murderous, i ts values turned upside down. Idiots reign. Water replaces currency and becomes the source of a bleak new evil...If it ever happened, it could be very like this...
