The flyleaf page of this engaging futuristic story includes a quotation from C. S. Lewis: “… but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
 
In this novel, corporate demagogues known as The Vital Few await salvation from the Earth’s  impending environmental disaster while battling the members of the Gaia-loving Humane Urbane Guerrilla Society (HUGS). This ideological conflict has driven both groups underground. Humanity's fate, however, may be decided by a mysterious alien culture with a vested interest in the outcome.
 
Susan Koswan is an award-winning Canadian environmentalist who deftly applies, in this her first book, Pareto’s 80:20 Principle–the vital few and the trivial many.
