To brexit or not to brexit? That is no longer the question.

Yes I have answer as to which way you should vote on Jun 23 and the reason why.
It is quite simple really. Essentially I am a science fiction writer, well I like to think I am, and usually I set my (short) stories in the near future. That is always risky as it takes me so long to get a story published (if it ever is) that those clever chaps, and chapesses, at Apple or Google, etc make the stories obsolete rather too quickly for my comfort.
However a few years ago Pendragon Press did publish my story ‘The Joy of Technology’ before any technical advances destroyed its premise. Pendragon published it as a chapbook and, though now out of print, it remains my solitary triumph as an actual ‘book’; stand alone, bound between covers, a spine, cover art a blurb and pages (admittedly not many) of text.
I have since self-published ‘Joy’ as an ebook and with some relevent ‘extras’. That was the origin of this blog and one place you can find the ebook version is here.
“What has all this to with Brexit?” you could be asking, having got this far. Surely that is obvious now.
I tend to worry about my stories becoming technically obsolescent but Brexit would make ‘Joy’ socially obsolescent. You wouldn’t want that. ‘Joy’ is set in a future where Britain is an EU member.

Yote Remain; to ensure my one published book is not outdated, outmoded and unread. Then buy the ebook to see the joys of membership to come.

PS I have no objection to you buying ‘Joy’ if you vote leave. In fact I urge you to do so to see what you may have prevented.
