Shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award 2013, Peter Heller's THE DOG STARS is a life-affirming dystopian tale of global disaster, survival, and belief for any reader of Emily St John Mandel's STATION ELEVEN or Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD
'The Road crossed with a post-apocalyptic romance...[engages] deep emotions to spine-chilling (and suspenseful) effect' Lawrence Norfolk, Guardian Books of the Year

Hig, bereaved and traumatised after global disaster, has three things to live for - his dog Jasper, his aggressive but helpful neighbour, and his Cessna aeroplane. He's just about surviving, so long as he only takes his beloved plane for short journeys, and saves his remaining fuel.


But, just once, he picks up a message from another pilot, and eventually the temptation to find out who else is still alive becomes irresistible. So he takes his plane over the horizon, knowing that he won't have enough fuel to get back. What follows is scarier and more life-affirming than he could have imagined. And his story, THE DOG STARS, is a book unlike any you have ever read.
