Tiltangle by R. W. Mackelworth


Mr Mackelworth's second novel to be selected for club members is even more fascinating than his earlier Firemantle. Here, in a new Ice Age created by the Earth's axis shifting,  only a small colony appears to have survived for generations in an ice city of their forebears' creation.

They had lived in a cave for a very long time - for generations of mind-numbing time. Only a few daring young ones were chosen periodically to go out and get new supplies, and not many of them came back. But some did, with enough food to keep the colony living. And breathing. The cold numbed the mind too. Keeping body and soul together took so much energy that few ever thought to ask any questions - like how had they got there? When would they leave? Or was it, in fact, already too late?
