The Threshold Bookcast : Chapter 5 : Space Oddity



Chapter 5 : Space Oddity

As the title suggests, the fifth chapter of « 2206 : Window Onto A New World » reveals more details of the recently discovered spatial anomaly, the baffling phenomenon that has all of Ovel talking.

In this instalment, we meet the other two key figures of the Coalition of Progressives, namely, Laura-Sylvia Bauer, head of the Greens, and Edward Rogers, chief of the Liberals, who collaborate with Jake Harvey in order to remove the Conservatives at the helm of the Global Government.

« The Liberal mused that the public opinion had been rather cruel towards his troops since the launch of the campaign. The platform of the formation, or obvious lack thereof as its detractors had been saying, was clearly not attracting the sympathy of the voters. The performance of most of his candidates had been such that almost all of his counsellors had advised to accept the proposition of the New Light Party and officialize the projected union, even prior to election day, as it constituted the best hope of accessing power. »



At the beginning of the episode, the trio of politicians and some of their staff are gathered in a conference room wherein a scientific consultant proceeds to brief them about the mysterious discontinuity. The dynamics of the developing relationships between the three party leaders come to the fore as the presentation unfolds.

I hope you enjoy this week's edition of the Threshold Bookcast. Here's « Space Oddity » !



On a background of environmental and financial crises, and religious influences intertwining with political manoeuvres to determine the fate of an overpopulated planet, The Threshold Series chronicles the saga of the Ovelian civilization, a society very similar to our own, as it heads towards one of the most dramatic chain of events of its history.

The first book, « 2206 : Window Onto A New World, » focuses on the end of the year 2206, which culminates on an important federal election that will be impacted by the discovery of an anomaly in the nearby outer space.

Each episode of The Threshold Bookcast consists in a complete chapter of the series, made available for free online reading.
