I know the lengthy time of nine months has passed since I last published a book, and told everyone about it, but it’s never too late – and here we have the second in the series of seven novellas I have outlined before. Each of them highlight varying aspects of x-dimensional theory in entertaining and engaging ways. The last, The God of New York, explored six dimensions in a near-future only-just-recognisable landscape. This new one goes back to the Bronze Age in the British Isles.

The main title Sesonsfin, meaning ‘end of seasons’, is derived from the Cornish, as are most of the names in the book. (I suspect much of the fun readers familiar with the UK may find, will be from attempting to identify the places described, as the names are totally different from those today.) It is set c.1000BC round about the time of the Hekla 3 volcanic eruption in Iceland that altered the climate dramatically. A clan from what is now known as West Cornwall glimpse what is coming through their seers, particularly the narrator, a young boy who has special gifts. They realise that their entire culture is about to be lost, and go on a momentous quest around the British Isles to gather hundreds more to their cause in order to preserve what they love. They have a solution, and that solution means tapping into ancient strategies and attempting something so daring it will take all the oratory skill the leaders have to persuade others it is even possible.

The book has been in the planning stages for a long time, but it was only during the first lockdown that I found myself stranded in Wiltshire in ideal circumstances to research and write the book. Using something I – in a slightly tongue-in-cheek manner – call ‘psyarchaelogy’, I used meditation, imagination and archaeological findings to get a sense of how Bronze Age people lived, and how they died. Yet that distinction is not qutie accurate, for I discovered that the division we tend to have between life and death did not exist for them. Part of the reason was that they maintained a constant connection with the beyond, so much so it was part of daily life. How they did this, is one of the main themes in the book. All I will say now is that many archaeological mysteries, such as their reverence for water, the breaking of objects at burial sites, the building of posts at stone circles in times of lunar eclipses, make a lot more sense to me now – and hopefully will for you too if you read this book.

The book is available both as a paperback and an e-book on Amazon (this is the UK link but other countries’ links also work) where you can read the opening pages. It is designed to sit neatly on a shelf with The God of New York, and eventually with the other five in the series. They should look good together. Amusingly, there was an error in publication and the subtitle is listed as the main title, A Tale from the Bronze Age. So the book has two main titles, the ‘erroneous’ one being much easier to remember and search for, a blessing in disguise. All redolent of a Trickster at work, very six-dimensional.

I intend to do a number of book events / talks regarding Sesonsfin, Bronze Age culture and psyarchaeology, so I may well be in your area soon, and you can buy copies from me then. You can also contact me if you would like to arrange one of these events.

So, strangely, or not so strangely, I have become as nomadic as my protagonists once again.
