Gene is a rogue-for-hire, using his one-man ship to make a decent living on the flooded Earth. Most of the population has been driven out to Seaplexes--artificial islands glutted with poverty, commercialism, and organized crime. His AI companion, Stitch, does most of the work of their salvage and smuggling jobs. Life is good.
Until a mermaid crawls into his ship's exhaust port.
Vala has finally been invited to the sacred glen, where she and her friends will choose their husbands. But Vala is less than thrilled -- no one wellborn is going to look twice at a farmer.
But the only way to beat the snooty, upper crust girls taking horses is to hike through the forest. That's no place for mountain-dwelling dwarf folk, and her friends agree. But better to have a few days of hardship than be miserable the rest of their lives.
A new take on Stand by Me, "Dwarves Can't Climb Trees" is about friendship, bravery, and what it means to change from a girl to a woman.
