I didn’t tell you to have a climate emergency panic!
No! That’s a typo. I want you to have a climate emergency PICNIC.
It’s the near-apocalyptic near-future. The once-unimaginable has happened and it’s time for the world to be saved… by a game show host?
It’s up to the courageous Elizabeth Smuir to bring down a glitter-blazered game show host with dictatorship ambitions, the charismatic Danny McCree. But her blundered kidnapping by a troll and bee-god called Derek galvanise her: she’s going to save the planet and stop Danny becoming a dictator. Well, she thinks she is.
Skin in the Game is a hilariously dark, entertaining and disturbing adventure into a not-so-distant future where climate despair is met with tasteless “bread & circuses” light entertainment and abuses of power.
