Labour organizer Padma Mehta is on the edge of space and the edge of burnout. She's supposed to recruit 500 people to the Union, but she's thirty-three short. When a small-time scam artist tells her about forty people ready to tumble down the space elevator to break free from her old bosses, Padma checks it out. Of course, it's all lies: the forty people are really six and they're really corporate espionage agents. Their mission: stop a plant disease that could wipe out all the industrial sugarcane in Occupied Space, even if it means sterilizing the planet from orbit. Padma has to fight her way through the city's warehouses, sewage plants, and up the elevator itself to save her job, her planet, and her sanity. Then maybe she can finally have a drink.

Reviews

"Adam Rakunas is one funny SOB, and now everyone's going to know it. Windswept is a zippy, zany ride, with more fast turns than a Wild Mouse rollercoaster. There's more witty banter and laughs per page than anything I've read in years, making this, my friends, the rarest kind of science-fiction-comedy novel: one that's actually funny. Buckle the hell up." - Daryl Gregory, Award-winning author of 'Afterparty' and 'We Are All Completely Fine'.
