Is it for us alone?

Blurb

A world in turmoil forces the will of one man towards an apocalyptic course that destroys the world for all but himself, but in the process he absorbs the thoughts, memories, feelings and life forces of the entire human race.  Can he live with his genocide and make a life for himself in an apocalyptic world of his own making?  Only time will tell.

Why I’m writing it

Basically borne out of a thought that I had that it was interesting to note that even if someone had all of the memories of every single person living, there was probably some books, novels or other writings in the world that that person still wouldn’t recognise.  It snowballed from there into something very different.

How I’m writing it

One of my longer term working projects and the one I’ve done the most on.

Here’s a starter on how I’m writing it.

The Story

These are all drafts and I expect that a lot of it will be changed as I work through this one in time, but I like to think that the shape of the story will remain broadly the same.

New Chapters will be published Wednesdays at 8:00AM GMT and Saturdays at 9:00AM GMT

Prologue

I’ve written this, but haven’t put it on here as I think I want it gone altogether or completely rewritten.  I wrote it at a time when this project was a bit different in my head.
