Douglas Thompson. Volwys. (Albedo One #42)

Interesting story from a writer new to me. It’s a story that will either be (hopefully) continued in Albedo One, or in other publications or novels. Ideally the former so I can find out how the story turns out.

Earth some centuries hence, post-climate change (and a whole lot more) with ‘Cherubs’, perhaps aliens/perhaps not, a man given the ‘gift’ of immortality finds himself increasingly pondering the nature of that gift, in a very strange society. He’s got the tools to defend himself, and the story balances the dramatic action and tension, with some strong imagery, and his philosophical musings.

    Mark, the story is indeed the first chapter of a book, also called “Volwys”. It will be published by Dog Horn Press in late 2013/early 2014.
