Almea+400 and Patreon

I have a new project, Almea+400. I’ve been working on Almea for forty years, and for all that time Almea has stayed in the year 3480. No more! The new project is to tell what happened next— for the next four hundred years.

This takes us through the equivalent of the modern era, and well into science fiction territory. I already have an outline of the history, and I think some really interesting things are going to happen.  Or have happened. I am not sure what tenses are appropriate here.

You’ll also notice that I have a Patreon now. This is to support not only Almea+400 but all my writing projects. Basically, I earn a scant living as a writer, but it’s pretty darn scant, and any support would help me keep going. (The pandemic hasn’t really damaged my income so far— but my wife lost her job due to it, so that doesn’t help.) Naturally I understand that most of you won’t be able to join, and that’s OK. I do really appreciate those who already have!

If you’re curious or worried, I’m also still working on the Middle East Construction Kit. In fact, one of the next steps is to go back to the sketch of Sumerian there.
