Twenty-fifth century Drayling, and Britain as a whole, has benefited greatly from advances in technology and medical science, and life in the Graves’ household, and in those of their friends and colleagues, is secure, clear and very content. The desire and need for clarity, truth and order has motivated communities to live in harmony, abandoning any potentially controversial aspects or ways of life, including all religions, in favour of a modern civilised society that upholds order, simplicity, honesty, love and honour as its ideals.

About the Author:
Terry J. Newman lives with his wife, Linda, in Sussex, England. He is a member of English Heritage, The National Trust, Brighton & Hove Albion Supporters’ Club and Mensa. Drayling is his first novel and is, in his own words, “more Futuristic Drama than Science Fiction. There aren’t any little green men or spaceships, it all just happens to take place in the future. It’s a different kind of Science Fiction book – for the intelligent reader.”
As an aside, Newman has revealed that, woven into the book, are twenty six “allusions to my home county of Sussex”. The most obvious example being the title, “Drayling”, which is an anagram of “Ardingly” – the author’s birthplace.
