The Geography of a Pocket Universe

Well not going to make it before the new year but that’s not really a problem. It will be a nice way to kick off the next one. Should be out in the first week or so of January once I get the formatting done.

My upcoming novel titled “Send Us Your Armies” takes place in a reality quite different from our own. I don’t want to spoil the physics of this strange world, as it’s much more fun to discover the details while you read and are forced to piece together the new laws and their implications. But one of the most distinctive features is the fact that the fundamental spatial building block is a three dimensional hexagon. These hexagonal prisms form the nodes of the Etherflow or Aern as some of its inhabitants now call it. Here is a map that I made so that the reader can track the movement of the story’s characters and place the major points of interest. Note that the map is not complete. It only shows the major features that help you place everything in the story. You also don’t really need it. It’s not like reading Churchill’s The River War without a map and having no clue where everything is happening.
