    It's still there, just ... wetter.

    It's part of Atlantis now.

    In a bout of childish selfishness I demand you finish that story!


    Cool as hell though,thanks for the response. I had wondered how you had worked the world map, was the 100m rise an arbitrary number or is that a figure from science if the ice all melted?


    IIRC I think I knew that if the ice caps melted the sea level would rise ~70m. And there were online tools to give the new coastline of any place given any sea level, so I had a play. And a 100m rise gave nicer results than 70m while being in the right ballpark.

    Mark,


    No ideA why but this morning a random thought popped into my head.

    Given the proliferation of weapons they have, and the devastation wrought on Europe.

    How fucked up is the North American continent? Or is rest of world something still to be explored in future works?


    A few years ago, before settling on writing Red Sister, I did start a book called The New World in which

    [SPOILERS FOR THE RED QUEEN'S WAR}

    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .

    Jal and Snorri set sail for America.

    I wrote about a third of it before getting sidetracked into other projects.

    The first 25,000 words - covering the sea voyage - are in the limited edition omnibus of The Red Queen's War as a bonus story!

    & this is what the map looks like (100m sea level rise)

    Btw I finished all three. Incredible how much I came to enjoy the exploits of these characters (feel sorry for Helen haha but know she's ok, in another universe...) and really root for him to work it all out. The last sequence in the tech company building was staggering.

    Well done Mark.


    Cheers. I thought it all came together nicely. I had a lot of fun writing the trilogy, and I think there are some layers there (about identity, aging etc) for readers looking for more meat/depth too.

    And now any a quarter of my way through Dispel Illusions. Man these are excellent little stories.



    Great to hear!

    It's true that they are at the shorter end of genre novels - Limited Wish is 70K words, Dispel Illusion is 72K. But it surprises me to see them called short (even novellas) so often (it seems half the reviews mention this) when Prince of Thorns was only 82K and hardly any reviews call it short. I wonder if there's a magic tipping point between 70 & 80K or if it's to do with some other factor.
