Under the World - Sci-Fi Apocalyptic Wallpaper - open to interpretation

Under the World – Image by The Saladman – All Rights Reserved – Click Full Size

Part of a series of images from the liquid metal, carbo-plastic, hydrogel and permacrete core of visual creators on the Internet.  Images that stir my senses and evoke plots and concepts for what I’d like to see (or fear) in the future.

This is a great image composite by TheSaladMan. In one respect, pretty wallpaper good enough for a large format screen. In another respect, open to some interpretation. The vibe for me is that this is the view from a man-made habitat (or part of the Borgendrill Corporation machine colony) about to depart the orbit of a doomed planet Earth. The moon – in the background – has become stained red through the cosmic upheavals, of a biblical proportion, in the process of taking place.

Or is it the Sun in the final phase before swelling to consume all inner planets? If so then not sure how to interpret the lens flare – maybe a Zubrin mirror array or part of a now defunct orbital solar energy grid.  Or reflected flight coming off another habitat.

This is the last glimpse any Earth-born will have of the planet that formed them – from which dust and minerals they were created.

Like a futuristic Ark, perhaps? Everything organic or mechanoid or data-centric has been gathered together for preservation.

Or just a pretty wallpaper image…

Dog Eat Dog - sci-fi dark fantasy novel set in the post-apocalyptic cthulhu mythos horror universe of Yellow Dawn

Available in paperback or Kindle

Paperback : from LULU & kindle: US ($), UK (£), DE (Euro)

DOG EAT DOG { novel } takes place in the near future, after the Earth has been devastated by a viral pathogen unleashed when a corporate cargo hauler crashed into the atmosphere; breaking up as a fireball across the sky, it showered Southern Europe and North Africa with a deadly rain of infected debris. Ten years later, over seventy percent of the human population is dead and only a handful of cities survive intact. So called ‘Living Cities’. The vast majority of human habitation is abandoned to the undying creatures left mutated through a brutal twist in the infection. Greed and corruption are left hovering over this bleak and brutalized domain and a cosmic horror is now free to infiltrate the remote abandoned corners of the Earth. Above this, the orbital colonies spin within artificial gravity wells, impartial observers, unaffected by the shocking events below. Within this mix the lives of two survivors collide: a renegade intelligence agent and a cold-blooded master of violence, shaping events with their virulent hunger for money and desire to carve their name onto this new world.
