The O.D.

Posted on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 | No Comments

A virgin landmass is thrust up in the Bay of Biscay by a 'magmatic pulse' under the seabed. Waiting to claim it are 80 people in a flotilla of trussed up barges, with supplies to last a year. Who are they? How did they know the island would be surfacing? What do they plan to do with it? In this fast-moving, fantastical story, The O.D. paints a picture of how our present gallop towards self-destruction could be halted, and fatal breakdown averted, given the global will to do so. The O.D. is about the threats and perils that face everyone on the planet - over-population, climate change, water shortages and what can be done to keep them from killing us. The action takes place ten or twenty years from now, by which point the Earth will have reached its tipping point. The burning question then, as now, is how can the ills of the world be effectively treated when countries can't agree on the simplest of things? The answer is to create a base of influence outside the rest of the world that is free of history, culture, and political and religious dogma, thus enabling it to devise a solution that's impartial and non-partisan - a solution the rest of the world can accept for this very reason. The 'science fiction' element of the book revolves around how this base of influence is realized.
