John Barnes. The Birds and the Bees and the Gasoline Trees. (Engineering Infinity).

To defeat climate change, humanity has been pushing iron-rich asteroids into our oceans. Whilst the climate change issue has been addressed, there are strange things happening in the ocean.

In a short space of time Barnes creates a ship-bound drama with an intriguing trio of characters – a female journalist, her scientist husband, and her husband’s ex-wife, who is a genetically engineered humaniform. The interpersonal dynamics are handled well, and exactly what is happening is a doozy, in a great story to round off a great collection.
