Soft-Apocalypse SF – Novelette


A major strand of SF treated the future in an upbeat way. Advances in technology solved problems. Robert Heinlein (who I greatly admired) was an exponent of it. The flip side to this was a future portrayed with a certain amount of foreboding. Draw a line from John Wyndham to JG Ballard and you cover a lot of the bases.

It’s the future. Richard Fogle has left Hastings to join the millions of Britons walking the motorways in the search for work. He’s come Up North and is currently on the M56. Manchester isn’t far off.

The story (6,000 words / approx 20 pages) is on this link: Manchester.
