Saloa caravan ship architecture



The Kin ships in the Plurality share a common architecture, with a ‘Spindle’, to which banana habitat modules are attached and attachment points for ‘Kataraa’ which provide the ‘Caravan Stack’ with thrust.

Sessrumnir 2110 Coast Phase

Modormen 2180 Battle Group



During the ‘thrust phase’, the habitat modules are fixed, parallel to the Spindle. During ‘coast phase the habitats detach and rotate with the spindle to create centrifugal gravity.

 

I haven’t added any additional info on  the ship entries yet (no-spoilers before the book is out!!) but here are the links to the Member Area glossary:

Tech from Singularity’s Children – Meddling with Mosquitos


I incorporate a lot of ‘fun’ technology into my books, every now and again, some of it leaks out into RL:
Miraculous’ mosquito hack cuts dengue by 77%

The REVOBS act pays species for the work they do (in #MESHCOIN of course!)
Bees clearly deserve to be paid for their pollenation work… but what about mosquitos?

A scene in Denial (Denial Book One) has the lawyer for the Mosquitos not entirely happy with a new technology that makes his clients allergic to human blood…

PaleoPunk Novel



If I’ve gotten a bit behind on my social media these last couple of weeks, it’s because I was away, researching an upcoming Paleo-Punk novel.

By the way, I had the ‘ronna over XMas so was no risk to myself or others while travelling. I had swabs up the nose at every stop just in case!

I thought I might have coined a genre there, but it seems there is a dormant #PaleoPunk hashtag on Twitter. If you want an idea of my take on PaleoPunk, think the Flintstones, without dinosaurs, written by a hybrid of Larry Niven and Dan Brown.

Serapeum of Saqqara – Apis Bulls my [email protected]! – These boxes are just silly! 80 tons each. Made of single blocks of granite. I have my own thoughts on the purpose of these incredible objects…

I have the broad-brush, background worldbuilding for this new novel:
