The Deathday Present
The intriguing beginning...
This is the start of The Deathday Present....please feel free to download and read these first chapters!
The first chapter sets the extraordinary scene for the 'deathday' of King William V, in 2182. Much has changed in this dystopian future, yet Berrecloth-Bale also has a keen eye for the perennial, as this chapter exemplifies.
The second chapter is highly unusual within fiction: read on for Emma Berrecloth-Bale's amazing envisioning of the hallucinogen-enhanced ceremony for a royal deathday.
