The People


The Author

Martyn MacDonald Adams

Martyn is a lightly bearded guy living in Godalming. He is currently working on a series of steampunk books.

When he gets philosophical he likes to muse on the fact that we all live together on the crust of a ball of molten rock while it whizzes around a deadly nuclear fireball.


Despite this fact, so far, very few of us have fallen off.


Sometimes he looks up into the sky and hopes that there’s nothing out there that will bump into us. Meanwhile, we are poisoning our home and squabbling amongst ourselves for reasons that he completely fails to understand.
