    'Wings of a Raven' By Mike Koontz is the first book in a shared contemporary book universe called 2028AD. Mature and at times even naughty storytelling and explicit events lurk behind each page as we traverse the known familiarities of planet Earth and the uncharted vastness of the universe.
    And if at any point and turn, you feel that you need more from this charming sci-fi universe, reach for the abyss of the dark world wide web and the home of every book and short story that relates to 2028AD right here at anorseview.com.
    The first book in this sci-fi universe, is delivered with a touch of abstract horror, and the pleasure and kink of sensual and sultry naughty love. Mixed with moments of life and death, science, and space exploration, pollution, sex, war, poverty, famine. The man made horror and climate change.
    In the 2028AD universe Earth is a world wrought in chaos. And it is a place where hope and despair tumble and take turn with the trembling steps of colonizing other planets while the oceans on planet Earth keeps rising.

    The Gateway Earth Chaebol
    A 2028AD stand alone sci-fi short story.



    'The Musk colony' as it was informally called could right now be thought of as a real but still very challenged success simply because the fleet had actually managed to reach their destination and somewhat to his own surprise, the entire fleet was still operational, bruised but functional.
    And considering how space travel and logistics had been prone to so many errors in the decades leading up to their unparalleled launch, the fact that they were all here, it was nothing but amazing. Taken for granted by the crew, by now at least, but still nothing but amazing.

    And while it was true, that they still had not actually put any human feet on the ground. Or even landed a single ship or UAV.
    We had reached our destination.

    '2028AD'
    Standalone story
    The common cyborg

     

    This is a short stand-alone sci-fi story from my near future book universe 2028AD. You can read it as is, a short near future sci-fi story, served in a perfectly delicious coffee break bite size to entertain and brighten your day. Or you can read it as a slice of time picked straight out of the bigger story that is the shared book universe 2028AD.

    It is however, capable of standing on its own exactly as it is, but like life itself, it is also just one little photon that connects to all the others swimming in the one vast ocean together with each other :). Giving meaning and context, life and transforming movement and energy through its own ripples. And perhaps one day you will find out that this little snippet is very much a meaningful part of the bigger story that is waiting to unravel. And perhaps this story will reappear again, with a beginning and a continuation.

    High up, in our ivory-like tower of glass, each evening we look out at the setting sun and how it after a long day of traveling, in the end, as always slowly dips each and every one of its rays of light into the watery ocean far beneath our toes and view.

    The evening sky and rolling landscape change their hue under the traversing basking light, and in the water, a rainbow of countless shades paints an illuminating backdrop to our goodbye and good night to the day that was.

    This unfolds while somewhere else in our sheltered home.

    'The departure'
    Early bird excerpt
    chapter 1, 2028AD

     

    A Serene, Monday evening spent outdoors together with you. And like the dotted i we all knew, it was in every way there is a perfectly solemn Indian summer day that kept lingering on as if we had all been forever caught in the basking light of the setting sun.




    Our departure impatiently growled and towered in the backs of both our mind. One part auspicious and eager to open the doors to this exciting, new, and uncharted chapter waiting for us to unfold and explore it all.

    The other part took the shape of a more ominous and hulking silence, waiting to swallow us whole from within the shadows of the corner of this one last evening spent in Earth's familiar hold. It´s scent, of dew and soil. The lasting humidity that played across our skin and senses even as the soothing autumn winds drifted ashore from the turning sea.

    Moments from the wilderness
    Summer equals offline vacation



    Just a quick hello from my pristine offline vacation.
    I am still enjoying a wonderful and productive offline vacation, but life is this endless waterfall of unbridled inspiration in any given day's endless little things.
    It comes fully packed ( inspiration ) within the beings that inhabit those days, the separate and connected individual moments and all the everyday stuff.

    So I had to pop in for a quick long read post because life inspired me to try and capture the gorgeous real life art which is on full display right in our very own wildlife place, our garden of trees :).

    the end of the combustion engine-powered car.
    Anthropocene is the science & footprint of you and me on Planet Earth



    This marks the end of the combustion engine-powered car.
    Volvo going all in on Electric engines in their car offerings.
    Starting 2019, every Volvo will make use of an electric motor.
    To top it off, Volvo will also make use of a completely climate neutral manufacturing operation by 2025.

    And while this is just one good ol car manufacturer crossing over to the better side of car manufacturing, Volvo will of course not be alone in this transition.
    Just as we see energy producers working their ass off to transition to a cleaner world without fossil fuel in their portfolios, car manufacturers are now all in on making safer ( autonomous cars ) and cleaner ( fully electric cars ) vehicles.

    Plastic litter, a prescient story.
    Anthropocene is the science & art of life on Planet Earth



    At some point in life, you might discover yourself having walked far enough outside the map that plots the discourse of the common life that society expects all to follow beyond their birth, and at this point of discovery, this is where you might realize that you can cut out all the distractions of the buzzy bees, and the perceived connotations of what people stubbornly claims to be "just how it is", all while they seemingly refuse to see how things actually are.

    And once you do, the void of white noise and people without words of meaning to express, all the colors and moving shapes from all the non-essential patches that weaves together to raise a banner of hollowness will start to dissipate.

    Dear Chancellor Merkel, I am writing you in your role as one of the more public representatives of Europe ( and the prosperity of the entire world ).
    Billions of people reject Trump’s attempts to divide the world on climate change and our mutual health and wellbeing. His disregard for science and public progress, education, and health.
    And as such, we call on you to lead the G20 meeting towards a healthier and more sustainable future, with or without the involvement of the USA or any other country and leader that is willfully turning its back on the future of humanity, our planet, science, health, and equality.
