I don't remember my dreams as a rule, but one morning, I sat upright, astonished. What a strange dream, I said.
Oh? (Said my husband, who has dreams you don't want to imagine.)
Well, I said. It's about a lantern and a world within a world ...
It sounds bonkers, and it was, but I thought there might be a story in it. So, I fiddled about and came up with True Haven. It's a Regency-style fantasy adventure, I think. The adjectives are an after-thought.
It probably came about because I was lucky enough to live in Bath for a few years, and somehow this worked itself into a story.
I needed some strange science. I got it. Thanks, Rob. My uber-consultant. His fees are quite reasonable.
And this week, Crooked Cat has said 'yes'. Thank you, Laurence and Steph. You do like to take chances! Well, Bath is a fun place and makes the mind spin.
I wonder what folks will make of it?
