Fact or Fiction:
In a world that has become a wasteland following a nuclear war, survivors have taken to the skies in re-purposed airships turned into habitats.  To keep the ships in the sky, a team of Hell Divers skydive to earth to retrieve parts and fuel cells.  This is a great science fiction series (we are on book three) and the audio book is highly recommended.  Hell Divers by Nicholas Sansbury Smith is a nice change of pace in a crowded genre.
