This week saw the launch of England’s Future History, an ongoing project that lets writers explore their visions of the future. As soon as a story is published it becomes part of the canon, and enters the official timeline.
My story, Rat Farm, is set in 2031. England is slightly out of joint, and rats are now farmed as a source of protein – leading to a number of rabies outbreaks in Paignton.

It is shaping up to be a fascinating project, and the next deadline is in June – in case you fancy getting involved. (Personally, I would love to see someone seize one of the other themes that I have introduced in my story and run with it!)
