New Title

It came to me last night, something finally that works for the book (now 40,000 words quietly and roughly typed up)

The Book of the Alter.

The spelling is deliberate – ‘alter’ refers to the alternative selves who appear in the book. Tick is still very much front and centre, but now he has diverged into two characters – this not indicative of dissociative disorder, but manifestations of…something. Arthur, his dream-friend from pioneer times, an ex-jesuit and something of a dark horse, and Theo, who has a sinister friendship with the young Margaret. I am not sure what he is planning, but it probably will be well intended but cause suffering. Or at the very least confusion.

Which is how this book is being written. A constant and sustained bash of bafflement.
