Intro

In The Beginning I talked about the concept of this series. This is the first of six People books that will be released prior to the first Battle book entitled The Collapse. Each People book focuses on one main character who is influential in the story development of the Battle books. Although each book is self-contained, there will be an overlap in timelines between each of the individual People books and some overlap of timelines between the People books and the following Battle book. This means that there may be references to events that aren’t covered in a People book, but that have happened during the same time period, and that are then recounted in the Battle book. I understand that this structure could be confusing, but I am looking forward to working through the challenges of resolving possible contradictions and keeping all these timelines relevant.

I have also always been uncomfortable reading books that tell stories in a two-dimensional timeline, knowing that life is four dimensional and that activities and events happen to people at the same time, in different ways. To provide context I use large events as benchmarks to help the reader understand where they are in each story’s timeline. There will be gaps in the storyline, sometimes large, but those gaps exist because unlike movies and other types of literature, life is 90% boredom, 10% “oh, crap.” I want my writing to be as close to what “reality” would be, which is that a lot of things in life take time waiting to happen, and then they explode into action. Then as quickly as they happen, they go back to moving very slowly again. Life isn’t a sine curve: it is a jagged, pointy, chaotic point graph of random heights and depths.

I really enjoyed writing The Killer. I was able to showcase some of the personality traits of some of the people I have disliked most. What better way to celebrate their contribution of negativity to my life than to congeal them all into one character. The scary part is, this character can, and probably does, really exist. However, all the events are fictional and this character is not based on any one person: he is an amalgam of several personalities, including a bit of my own. We all have darkness, I am just willing to acknowledge mine, since I refuse to allow it to operate in my life. I wish we all could have that presence of mind. If it were possible, perhaps a more utopian society could exist, much like the Star Trek cultural age many science fiction readers imagine and long for. Unfortunately, until that happens, it seems that era is further away than we would all like.
