Dunnard's Pearl
Dunnard's Pearl: What to do with the world when you can't get off.
Dunnard's Pearl
People are remarkably adaptable. If you ruin them slowly enough they barely notice! Humans and aliens take on the establishment in Mike Williamson’s funny and thought-provoking debut, Dunnard’s Pearl. Part-time teenage idealist James Justice is transported to a strange world from the playing-fields of his London school. Despite the bright, new surroundings, the same dirty, old tricks are being enthusiastically employed by a self-serving government to fleece the people. James promises to champion the down-trodden and stumbles upon two more earthlings who have also found themselves mysteriously beamed aboard the ‘Vortex’. Together, the three teenagers tread a fine line as they attempt to play along with the powers that be while desperately seeking a way to return home. They find themselves thrust into the company of a very soft alien couple, are recruited for a reality television show, and learn the awful secret that the Administrators are determined to hide. As they try to avoid this awful fate, James and his allies face a final, violent showdown with the Grand Administrator. Will they win? Will they ever find a way to return to their homes?
