The stories continue
My 1970 crime novel A Walk on the Wilder Side will shortly be finished and I will begin the process of submitting it to agents, always reserving the right to publish it on Amazon if I don’t find the right home for it.
As many of you will know I have been serialising it on this website and I have been surprised by the people who have enjoyed it, most of whom will not even have been born in 1970. Chapter 27 was added on Friday and I have just completed chapter 60, the most complex of chapters where all is revealed.
The book ends leaving the possibility of the story continuing in a second Wilder book with Keith and Any beginning their life together. I am currently thinking about that. I would be interested if anyone has any views about that.
The other possibility is a Sci-fi story about a world ruled entirely by women where a new ice age caused by global warming is threatening the human race. You may think that is pure fantasy but according to scientists at Cardiff University, it is very much a distinct possibility caused by the melting of Antarctic icebergs could set off a chain reaction that plunges Earth into a new ice age, it was reported in the London Daily Mail recently. And as for women ruling the world, why not? They would probably make a better job of it than us!
I have various other ideas too, including a third Naomi story. I shall mull it all over helped by pints of Guinness!
