On the airwaves, all the talk is of the new blue planet - pristine and habitable, like our own 65 million years ago, before we took it to the edge of destruction. And off the air, Billie and Spike are falling in love. What will happen when their story combines with the world's story, as they whirl towards Planet Blue, into the future? The novel is set in the distant future on the planet Orbus which, according to its rulers, »isn't dying« but merely »evolving in a way that is hostile to human life«. This sci-fi novel also deals with the present, its vision of a society obsessed with youth, sex and celebrity offering a stark warning to our own. The central love relationship between Billie, a government official, and Spike, a female robot, is played out with subtle variations in the novel's two other strands: the first involving an 18th-century castaway and a half-Dutch islander on Easter Island, and the second involving a company operative and a prototype robot in a post-apocalyptic London.
