I have used some of my now extra spare time to work on The Gold Sarcophagus, and must admit it is quite a challenge. As the final in the Nine Worlds of Mirrortac series, TGS must up the ante on the previous two books, so it means some solid intense writing. I have completed the second chapter at this point, with more than 20,000 words all up down and backed up to the Cloud. There is no shortage of ideas but I have had to diverge from my favourite erfin characters to build up the drama and suspense involving the super race of people called the Uranians. I am again borrowing from mythologies; this time injecting some ancient Egyptian and Atlantis quasi-history around the rise of an ancient god who is actually a Uranian who was thought dead. The erfins’ mission to stop him is thwarted at every turn, and he succeeds in mesmerising much of the earth’s population. The Uranians also are thwarted in trying to stop him when a group of zealots sabotages their efforts to come to the rescue. Things get rather complex, and therefore I will be drawing on some of the masters of fantasy to assist me in my writing. Raymond Feist in his Magician and Empire series is experienced in dealing with the politics of alien races, himself most likely drawing on the politics of ancient societies in our history.
