The Constant Sea of Night

The Constant Sea of Night

The Constant Sea of Night is a collection of brand new novellas about the Earth shortly before its collapse. It may be submitted to small publishing companies in Canada before I consider self-publishing. It should be available by the end of 2016, if it doesn’t get picked up by a publisher and distributed on their schedule instead.
Eight adventures in the Post-Nation State Age world of 2116. Seven people cut loose from the fabric of the societies they grew up in, shortly before the catastrophe that destroys civilization and forces the survivors to board the first in a series of mega-trains, on which they will live and most likely die, as the world around them falls apart.

Normal Heights
A group of institutionalized adolescents with amazing skills and talents abandon their institution and go into hiding. They are pursued by their mentor, who would rather see them dead than share their talents with the world freely.

A man hell-bent on achieving success in a commercially-dominated post-modern corporate society is forced to reinvent himself when his partner cheats on him and ruins their credibility rating.

Distant Satellite
A genetically modified wuman living in a space colony hits out on the road to escape a group of activists bent on revenge for her inadvertently identifying their leader as an atavistic murderess.

An industrial spy leaves his job to find peace in his old provincial home town, only to come to the painful realization that everyone he knew has been corrupted by the state.

Cold World
An insurance investigator goes after an insurance fraud criminal and winds up knee deep in murder plots in the wastes of the Canadian Shield Agrology, miles below the surface of the frozen north.

The Immortal Sun (working title)
A transsexual from Brazil has been living in the deserts of Chile, running a massive solar powered greenhouse that is under attack by aggressive developers who want the land for a new planned space port cosmopolis.

Skin & Bones
A surgeon has her license to practice medicine revoked for secretly practicing a modern form of Body Work, an ancient, non-invasive medicine that has been outlawed after the accidental death of the Senior Chair of the North American Union. Then she is kidnapped and taken to the Caribbean to practice her medical arts in secret, working to save a zombie colony, including the Chair’s daughter.

Termination Station
Seven strangers wind up on the first mega-train out of the vast wastes of America, where environmental disasters are piling up by the day, forcing the entire surviving population to become permanent refugees aboard the train. When a series of mysterious deaths begin to occur, each of the seven begins to investigate, hoping to identify the culprit before they too are identified.
