One of the ironies of good fiction is that it should not be messaged based. So previous novels about animals, myths and story are more about the experience of being alive. If one fan and pledger to Kickstarter though can write “There are only two authors that I can say that have had a profound influence on my life and you are one of them.” then it was worth it anyhow.
On the other hand, look at the headline in The Independent in the UK today: Leaked draft of second IPCC report predicts Global Warming will cause violent conflict, displace millions of people and wipe trillions of dollars off global economy.
Perhaps then a novel involving such themes can have some real impact and Light of the White Bear will have a wider meaning and purpose. But not if the pledges do not rise quickly THIS WEEK! You can see a new talk about it by CLICKING HERE
