Futureshock

Josh Newman has started a discussion list for stories around the themes of Shock, his game of Social Science fiction. I started to write a story there but then realised that it's not really the type of thing he's after. It's a bit too fluffy and not so much about the human condition. So I've posted it here instead. It's pure nostalgia for me.

Next time, this!

It's seven times larger than the Grand Canyon and 30% deeper, and until last month I'd never heard of it. That's because Copper Canyon's in Mexico.

The Smithsonian run a train trip through it that looks incredible, and coincides with Paula's birthday next year. She might blanche however at me spending quite so much (around £4K including flights) but then 42 is special.

For those Inspector Morse fans out there, there's always this one.
