The O.D.

Posted on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 | No Comments

A virgin landmass is 'extruded' into the Bay of Biscay by a solar-tidal magmatic pulse. Waiting to claim the emerging island are 80 people in a flotilla of trussed up barges with supplies to last a year. Who are these accidental tourists? How did they know the island would be surfacing? And what do they plan to do with it if their claim to sovereignty is accepted by the world community? Racy and thought-provoking, The O.D. paints a picture of how humanity's rush to self-destruction could be halted, given the global will to take a colossal leap... backwards. 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 avert them. The action takes place ten or twenty years from now, by which point the Earth will have reached its tipping point. The burning question is, how can these threats be addressed when countries can't agree on the simplest of things? The answer - 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 promote 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 realised. 99 Cent Bargain from January 10 - 16, 2017
