I have a soft spot for sci-fi. I really enjoyed reading the classics from Clarke, Bradbury or Asimov as much as K. Dick or U. Le Guin. Its fascinating to witness the shift of paradigm our civilization experience, as our systems start to see their limits and as the AI become smarter and smarter. Truly Sci-fi give us a plausible view of how we will shape, or be shaped, by our future.

It’s interesting to look at how those universes have been expanded into the pop culture. Like Roadside Picnic from A. and B. Strougastki have come to a mythic video game series in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (which was previously adapted into a movie under the same title).

There are comics books, series, video game exploring far beyond the frontier of the classics.

In  this novel I intend to shape a world destroyed by natural causes, where humanity stands divided and where what seems to be random series of events intricate  into an epic tale of hard sci-fi, between redemption and betrayal.

A wasteland story is an ongoing work. Yet to be continued and very far from finished. The outline of the world and most of its background is clear, coming from a very diverse array of dystopias, but I’m still not sure about how to arrange the story line.

What you can read here are the first glimpse at what is intended to become a exploration into machine learning, human memory, social behavior, religion, survivalism and freedom packed in a classic wasteland decorum. Yea, it’s quite the challenge !

Hopefully you’ll enjoy discovering the world as the narration goes and our characters are developed.

As French is my native language, It is easier for me to write in French. Sorry for the english readers (google translate is your friend).
