Having spent many years researching future social trends and contributing to futurology websites, I've written the novel 'While the Gods Sleep' as a fast-moving exploration of what's in store for us as a society in twenty years time. Published by Virtual Tales, the novel is available in paperback and in various e-formats.
In the near future, individuals will have no faith in authority. People will instead form mini societies linked by networks with their own value systems. Ecological collapse, and new, opportunistic viruses will make access to gene- specific health treatments enormously important. Mega corporations will align thenselves with the more affluent networks through ruthless manipulation of media content.
For the few with no network, life will be difficult. Imagine a man cut off from society incarated in a low-tech prison zone. Imagine this person as a disfigured charlatan. Imagine what would happen if he has genetic material hugely valuable to certain people ...... Imagine. ..
