About Solar Drift

by Martin A. Hale

Space – there is no space – not anymore. The year: 2430.  The earth is a shattered husk – depleted of its natural and mineral resources and from a colonial war twenty years past. Humankind, overpopulated, clings to antiquated space stations, mining bases and colonies scattered across the Solar System from Mercury to the Oort cloud. Interstellar space travel is a dream lost some 200 years ago with the colony fleet that left for a nearby habitable system, it took with it the best and brightest so that humankind could start anew – but they were never heard from again.  Now the Solar System is controlled by corrupt mega-corporations, puppet governments and warlords intent on carving themselves a patch of space.  

You can find a bit of background information about the story to get you going on the right, just click on the ‘Background information’ link. Each episode is listed out as they are released under the ‘Solar Drift Pages’ menu – there should be a new episode each month.

There is also a page about myself, the Author, and a bunch of links to others writers, related sites and much more. Oh yeah and don’t forget to check out the ‘Latest News’ page where I post anything that’s going on, I post polls and images/sketches there also.

So put on your environment suit and strap yourself in as I jettison you into the dark future of SOLAR DRIFT !

  2. At this time it appears like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
