A Future Unbound
“Any sufficiently advance technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
— Clarke’s Third Law, Arthur C. Clarke.
“Dragon’s Vale” On Earth, in the far distant future, mankind has been transformed beyond recognition. Evolutionary mutation, horrifying wars and nightmarish runaway technology have condemned the world to quarantine from the outside universe and most people have forgotten their ancient origins.
This is a world in which technology has advanced so much it’s become magical, in which Elves, Mages and Unicorns walked the world as the products of unimaginable advances in science and technology over unknown ages of time. Their history forgotten, people treat their world as a natural place, with no thought or memory of their ancient origins. Only one place remembers everything – “Dragon’s Vale”, a remote valley by the ocean, created by the most ancient of them all, with powers like gods.
To conquer “Dragon’s Vale” offers unimaginable power, fortune and glory. But people have forgotten what else lies there awaiting them.
“Here be dragons! Go away, or die!”
Background to “Dragon’s Vale”
“Dragon’s Vale” is a short story (over 18,000 words) written by Michael Bond and inspired by JRR Tolkien’s “The Lord Of The Rings” and the question – what if it was set in the far, far future? What if, following Arthur C. Clarke’s Third Law, technology has become so advanced it was indistinguishable from magic and people had forgotten its origins? An interpretation of what happened after those dramatic, mythic events of Middle Earth, the casting down of rings of power and in the thousands of years that followed during the return of men in the world, as godlike powers reach down to lift the world back to enlightenment.
