ADDED TO SYNOPSIS AFTER INPUT FROM OTHERS:
But wait. There's a new surprise element involved in the above synopsis. As my teacher explained to me -- and yes I have a teacher -- "People don't usually like books in which there is no one left at the end. But if you did it as a Time Travel and the time traveller gets back to the present and does Something to prevent the X, that might work. Because
total hopelessness is not motivating!"
So now this sci fi cli fi novel is a Time Travel novel, as it needed to be. But I needed my teacher to point this out to me. I see the way more clearly now. And am still looking for a writer to write this book. Your byline. All royalties to you. Cast of characters created by you. Title is yours to come up with, as "Birthday Party" is merely tentative for the purposes of this synopsis- in- progress.
is one of my favorite authors. But I disagree with you. Those who will
be ''on the beach'' when this world ends will not be in Australia; they
will be in Antarctica. At the Permian-Triassic (PT) extinction event
252 million years ago, the remaining life on the planet existed only
in Antarctica. I'm not sure if it was James Hansen or Andrew Guzman
who wrote that the last humans from the climate apocalypse will have
one final colony in Antarctica. But that is what will happen if we go
into the full Venus Effect.''
He added: "As I think I mentioned, when I get closer to finishing my novel, I
will create a new blog and one of my first posts will
describe this whole scenario.''
