Author Biography

I've been a consultant and campaigner in environmental and climate issues for 40 years and worked in many countries. It's been a bit depressing to see the increasing destruction of our beautiful planet, the inaction by governments and the continuing ignorance and denial of many, even as the world burns. It's just as well I like beer. I thought what would I do to save the world if I had the means? How can I make it into a dramatic and entertaining story? The Fossilarchy is the result.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

The Fossilarchy is a work of fiction in the thriller, action, and environmental subgenres. It is intended for the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Tom Clark. This action-packed and politically-charged thriller novel sees two rebellious forces come together to tackle the planet’s climate emergency by any means necessary, no matter how drastic. As fossil fuels become the central target for destruction, an old legend is revived, and the scene is laid for battle in Australia as a key target for taking down the titular Fossilarchy, a lynchpin that will begin the collapse of everything that threatens our future world.

As a huge fan of the upswell in modern climate fiction, it was exciting to see the action-thriller genre taking up the mantle in this excellent work by author Tom Clark. One of the features that I especially enjoyed was the sense of urgency in the plot and surrounding context, and the build-up of frustration as characters are both wronged by the sinister fossil fuel industry and ignored despite their very legitimate concerns. Daring to walk an extreme line that could become a frightening reality if we don’t change our ways soon, the action scenes were cinematically penned against the stark backdrop of the coal industry. The political elements were intelligently considered, and then a selection of well-developed, tough, and determined characters carry us confidently through the narrative. Overall, I would highly recommend The Fossilarchy for thriller fans seeking something original and bang up to date to get their teeth into.
