Passive erasure of a people in captivity. An Englishman entangled in a petty art theft in Paris. A wealth-connected virus. Overdose and coma. A population wakes up in a biosphere, is fed regularly, develops its own laws and stimulants, and is divided between law-enforcing cannibals and dreamers. A madman hears the voice of God and prophesies the downfall of his city; he goes mad when his people are not destroyed. New Zealand at war in a post-apocalyptic ecological nightmare. This is the stuff of my novels so far (1997-2016).
