Random Skies is a novel series set in the very, very near future. Unfortunately it started coming true in 2020, and has only recently started to deviate from the timeline proposed in 1999. As of the time of writing, there's still time for a devastating die off to begin from a 'Disease X' in 2024, (before the US election,) but let's hope that the failure of "Covid" to introduce the Global Identification passport has set the totalitarian plans back a few years. The very first book was written in 1984 after a reread of Orwell, and was a stand-alone volume called Fury, set in 2057. The first book of the series that became the prequel, Quorum, came years later in 1999 and was a treatment of the hoax surrounding something called 'the millennium bug'. When it wasn't going to be finished by the year 2000, it became irrelevant, but was converted into a futuristic vision of a take-over of the West by an internationalist cabal that preceded Fury. At the time, throwing Quorum forward thirty odd years into the future seemed like a safe bet. Unfortunately, an explanation of the events within Quorum that allowed the novel to take shape, have just spent twenty years coming true. Notes that have steadily been made since Quorum, were arranged into episodes of a television series and the novelisations are now being published. Items that are appearing in the media today, are echoes of scenes in the books. They are posted here as they happen, although to be honest, there isn't much to surprise people anymore. *** Novels in the first series are available (for now) on Amazon: Vol. 1 No. 01: Quorum https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07N8C3WWS Vol. 1 No. 02: Prine's Metropolitan https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07P96WDF6 Vol. 1 No. 03: US3R Of The Darknet https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07PXKMGP2 Vol. 1 No. 04: The Whispers On Carrier X https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07R4BJS33 Vol. 1 No. 05: Weaving Spiders https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07SLCPHLJ Vol. 1 No. 06: Heng https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07TDNFJKP Vol. 1 No. 07: Like Love Hate Hate https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07VDVM3Q7 Vol. 1 No. 08: Year Zero https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07W8DMYCX Vol. 1 No. 09: Rishek https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B089T35RRP Vol. 1 No. 10: The Zura Contract https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08NW66JL9 Vol. 1 No. 11: Dead Man's Switch https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B09RVGY4DL Vol. 1 No. 12: Binar! https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0BXZ4K3C7 *** The first two prequels are now online.
