Driven by current economics, technology and politics, the people of earth gradually take three distinct and separate routes forward. The rich go down, the dispossessed stay put and the adventurous take off.
This book follows their progress through parallel, intimate and gripping story lines where the digitised are terrorised by corruption, the dispossessed are hunted by cannibalistic seekers of immortality and the departed are enslaved by the cultural mores that they carry with them.
3D Futures creates worlds that are exquisitely believable and populates them with characters who test their, so human, traits in extreme conditions. This book is grand in its scope and there will be more to follow.

About the Author
I always wanted to write, even as a kid, and now I do. I can transfer the desire to other projects and often do - but if there is nothing much on then I need to write. In my past life in the technical world I was often puzzled by colleagues who hated writing in the way that some people hate maths.They were forced to write whereas the pen had to be wrested from my hand. When my children were young I wrote for them. I clearly recall reading the second chapter of a book I started on the lives of a family of city foxes. I had almost finished reading a section in which most of the cubs were gassed in their earth when I looked up and was amazed to see tears streaming down the faces of my two daughters. The power of the written word? My first full book was published in 1991, It followed many technical papers and articles and was followed by two newsletters which I edited, and mostly wrote, for the next ten years. Four more technical books appeared after which I abandoned the world of technology and began doing my own thing. I travelled, became an Oxford city guide, and wrote a number of books and articles, some fiction, some non-fiction, some published, some not. See my bookshop on the web for all of my books and a shocking experience in an online pub.
