As I’ve been doing the A to Z Challenge since 2014, I decided for 2020 to re-blog my best posts from the 2014 to 2019 Challenges.
Those themes were:
2014: Gossamer Flames – research nuggets for the game-world I created for ‘Wyrm Bait’, which evolved into my post-apocalyptic saga.
2015: The War of 1812 – historical research for a diary that appears in my Snowdon Shadows novel, ‘Seeking A Knife’.
2016: A Brilliant Conspiracy – a mystery, deadly poisons, and best-bet horses. However, the posts were weird, so they’re best archived and not re-aired.
2017: History of Kanata – an alternative history triggered by Leif Eriksson colonising Vinland and forging an enduring legacy with the indigenous people.
2018: A2ZMMORPG – an investigation into the Origins of various On-line Games, including the literature or folklore behind them.
2019: Azure Sparkle – an early case for Detectives Sparkle Anwyl and Kamatchi Pillai of the North Wales Police. A novella in the Snowdon Shadows series.
