Democracy of Managers : Ch.16e 26/3/00 The modern world had become inseparable from free democracy. Every citizen exercised a vote for public...

More Reforms by the New National Labour Party

Just a few ideas about a New National Labour Party, which has just won a landslide in an election, based on its 'common sense' and 'no nonsense' policies. It is just a possible future scenario, but an interesting one I think, in this overcomplex and malfunctioning world.

Tales Of Gallanol : Ch.8 Morith (Part 1)

Jovian is welcomed by the Royal Family of Elladein in Morith, but they are due to flee from the advancing southern army of High King Deneldinhew. They hear his story and encourage him to flee with them.

Janus browsed on the vidnet. He was looking for material for another book he was slowly working on. He was in the job adverts section, under Creative Media and Sales. He wondered what was meant by 'creative media' in this world of work. ...

You have described the story

Posted on Thu, 05 Dec 2019

I enjoyed this! Very readable, and I can empathise with its humility and sense of not making too much of a difference. I like the way you create the sense of decline in the disappearing city.
