Table of Contents HNMNBM

HNMNBM is science fiction. The purpose is to entertain, challenge, and inform. The book presents a liberal Christian viewpoint of the day after tomorrow. Nine strangers, some coming of age, from a variety of races, creeds and color meet, grow, develop together in a time of heightened violence, political polarization, pollution, waste, climate change, and economic change, (fiat currency, gilded age). Against that backdrop, the group must work together to survive, worship and prosper.

NOTE: If the book is successful, the plot design allows for expansion into a trilogy, (HNMNBM, Blue Circle, and Citia).

Writing style:
Time in the 24 hour system 4:00 PM is 1600 in the book
Metric system unless there is an explicit reason to use English/American
Molecules do not use subscript, (hard to read) CO2 H2O etc
Numbers in numeric form unless: very large, or it sounds good Saul has his thousands, David has his tens of thousands
Quoted speech, trying to avoid unnecessary quotes, if I need to bring attention to a phrase, I use quotes, punctuation is inside the "
Word boxes are used to explain obscure references, author of poetry etc as a white space alternative to inline explanations that are also used. Try to make it sound like an AI inserted, (no humor, concise)
Run on sentences, yup
References to songs, poems, literature, realize this needs to be standardized
Indent 1: Phone, email, presence, telegram etc
Indent 2: Explanatory text
Indent 3: Sidebars, need to look at this closely

Intellectual Property:
Many real companies/place names consider asking for permission and ....... I have tried to be more careful with people unless historical and famous e.g. Albert Einstein

The novel is politically biased, even so I try to avoid Republican, Democrat, Right, Left, some bleedthrough may happen
