I Sci-fi a new Story by Moi – “Looking Landwards” (yeah, yeah, cheesy title, I know but I’m feeling happy, so there)

It was officially confirmed about a week ago that my story “My Oasis Tower” will be joining 23 other authors in the collection “Looking Landwards“, edited by Ian Whates at Newcon Press and sponsored by the Institution of Agricultural Engineers¬†in celebration of their 75th anniversary. The book is scheduled to be launched at BristolCon in October.

The collection’s sci-fi stories are based on different interpretations of the future of farming. Some of these will be more practical interpretations than mine. My story describes the use of leylines in food production – not the betting man’s future, for sure. This frames the real story of a woman living in a lighthouse-esque environment and having to deal with a machine fault on awakening, only to find far more than machines downstairs.

All stories in this collection are geared towards a reader’s enjoyment, as any other story collection should be, and are not essayish theories on the technical future of farming. I hope that clears up any misunderstandings.

Personally, I am chuffed to be named amongst writers who have already made such a name for themselves and I get my first paid writing job, to boot. Happy bunny: present.
