Description - The View From Ararat by Brian Caswell

One hundred years after the Revolution, Deucalion is a model society and life is good. But all that is about to change. Death arrives one day on the C-ship, Pandora, and suddenly no one is safe. Overnight, the old rules no longer apply. When every breath and every decision is a matter of life and death, when every friend is a potential threat, and the only one you can count on is yourself, how deep does your civilisation really run? In the sequel to the multi-award-winning Deucalion, Brian Caswell takes us a century further into his vision of Humanity's future. Once again, he merges fact with fantasy in a gripping read for young adults and lovers of speculative fiction alike.

Author Biography - Brian Caswell

Brian Caswell spent his very early years in the mountains of Wales moving to England for seven years before emigrating with his family to Australia at the age of twelve. He remembers his mother writing and reading stories to the family, and of being immersed in books from an early age. He thinks he is the only kid to have a letter sent home to his parents asking them to stop him reading. Equally central to his life as reading is his love of music. Beginning at the age of ten he had a successful career as a singer and writer of songs - one of his songs made the top 40. In the late 70's he moved out of the music industry. Brian started teaching in 1976. Of his years as a teacher he says-'I loved teaching; for twelve or fourteen years I loved it. But when I stopped loving it, I stopped loving it totally.' Teaching English was, in a roundabout way, what got Brian into writing. Around the mid-eighties he found that many of the books set for classroom study were no longer making any impression on students. So he thought he would write one himself. He admits his first book wasn't at all good - but it was good enought for Barbara Ker Wilson, the editor for young adult fiction at the University of Queensland Press to spend time with him pointing out what worked and what didn't. As an author on the shortlist in 1989, Brian found himself invited to schools to talk to kids about hi
