Twenty-seven years ago, technology died. The fundamental laws of the universe had inexplicably changed. But Fred fears the repercussions of such drastic, irreversible steps.
A publishing event twenty-five years in the making: Thirty years ago the lights went out, the airplanes fell, the cars went still, the cities all went dark. The laws humanity had always known were replaced by new laws that could only be called magic.
The world has changed forever. In a small community on the California coast are Fred Garey and his friend Yan, both born after the Change.
Yan dreams of doing something so big his name will live on forever. In he elegt some time off from writing, and during this period he learned to play the didgeridoo,… More about Steven R. Its premise is that one day everything just Changes: Twenty-five years later Ace has published Elegy Beachmy sequel to Ariel. It has been unequivocally the best publishing experience I have ever had, and an absolute delight even during a lot of hard work for me and for Ace.
My response is that the world before the Change really was different for each book. Nearly thirty years stands between the writing of those two novels. In those three decades we began to transition to an information economy and a global society.
Communications technology migrated online and began to transform culture and beac and business and finance in ways as drastic and unforeseen as the invention of the automobile. The level of scrutiny on public figures and private citizens boyetg at least a hundredfold.
The density of information and human population increased to levels that affect almost everything we do and everywhere we go. You might be reading these words at a Starbucks on their Wi-Fi using an app on an iPhone that you bought from eBay with a debit card registered to your Paypal account.
It would have been the worst kind of sci-fi jargon. Ariel is more affected by the loss itself than Elegy Beach is, because Boyrtt takes place immediately after everything Changed.
Elegy Beach deals with a generation that has grown up in the post-Change world and feels no sense of loss at all. A generation that regards obyett things around you right this second as ebach whose abilities may well be outright lies.
To write Elegy Beach with the aim of epegy totally consistent with the Change at the time of Ariel would have meant blatantly disregarding the astonishing social, cultural, and technological changes developed in the interim. Which takes away a lot of the purpose and the fun of depicting the Change in the first place. Plus, I think such omissions would have been glaring in their absence.
I think readers understand that novels about the loss of technology written thirty years apart are going to have inevitable disparities.
We read it for the story, for the characters, for the writing itself. Dick without stopping to wonder why no one in those pages makes cell phone calls.
