‘Mankind Limited’

Many many thanks for the rave review! Stardom here I come -ahem. Back to down to earth.



This book  ⇑⇑⇑ should be a movie. Somewhere in Hollywood right now there are actors waiting for their agents to deliver this story in script format to them. The makings of all action-packed adventure films is here. I can see the film in my mind’s eye.

But this one is different.

It’s not fast-paced for the thrill of it alone. It needs to be to get the message across. Mankind could be on the threshold of just such a future. Time is racing.

This one could be us.

Maybe a few years down the line yet, maybe already almost there in some similar format. Change a few details. Replace one group for another. Look behind the motives in politics and corporations. Stretch the reality just a little. Ask ourselves questions looking through the light of a different lens.

It feels like us, it acts like us, it may very well come…

  1. The best of luck and success with it, Scott. We could all do with reading this story. I genuinely can see it as a movie and one, if done right, that could maybe get people talking about some of the ideas you raise so well. I’m very much looking forward to the next one.


      1. Oh, I presumed, because of the last page or so, that the character there was leading to the next phase; had their efforts been successful, what strategies had come into play on both sides afterwards.
        You certainly got me thinking, Scott. And talking. (not that I need to much encouragement there!) I’ve been talking to my kids and a few other folk about your book and the similarities to our current state of affairs, how recognisable that society is with all elements of our own, only the terminology being different. In fact, the terminology you used to describe that society marking ours as almost there, the next stage almost inevitable and easy to see.
        The characters were us, in all our various states of awareness or not, in all our frustrations and motivations.
        I’d love for everyone to read this book, to question what we do and is done in our names, to challenge our perceptions and change us for the better.
        I sincerely wish you all the best with it. You’ve succeeded in raising important thoughts in a story that is eminently readable – every writer’s dream.
