Welcome to Gary Mitchell’s website.S

The ‘SVfM’ website is active at ‘Space Vixens From Mars’ . Set in the 26th century it’s the penultimate sci-fi epic saga and adventure games system.

This site is for everything else and is more minimal and less ‘texty’ – ‘cos that’s what the experts tell me is best. So if you want to know, please contact me.

    G’day Gary- I’ve been out of touch with the doings of the Federation since I left but did catch up with a couple of members recently and heard some stories.

    Get in touch- love to hear what you’ve been up to!

    Hi Gary, The book I’d like written would be about the sheer corruption of both the eldest born in my family and at the same time as the government and how I could not sue and this had been how I would handle such deep emotions in the past: to cover Police Targets – Theresa May’s u- turn on collective bargaining – Immigration and Housing Associations – Digitalisation and how the younger generations believe more in David Ike than the globalisation politics of today: The betrayal left me with no where to live until the 11 year. I saw a different M.P. every year: one piece of protocol stopped them from assisting me that of – not really in my constituency. The Lib Dems put forward a minimum anyone should be living on £10K I’can’t tell you how I wished that had gone ahead.

    • Interesting. The first thing would be to plan the plot and aims. To fictionalise it would probably need a dystopian setting. You would need some conflict amd resolution to the tale too. Every novel needs a good story to tell

    Hi, this is what has come up in response: I’m looking to highlight the power invested in the first born and how the dynamics change as soon as the King and Queen of the family pass on: In Gladiators Ceaser tries passing on his mantle to his best gladiator and his son takes this badly and smothers his father Caesar and tries to have the chosen one killed. It’s as if Rome is in every family when money comes in to play. I wish to tell what has happened to me using Shakespeare and the wiliness of Brutus’ friend who sees Brutus can be chanlled into turning against caesar and that caesar loves him. Dickens Little Dorrit – Shaken out of destinies dice-box – just how I felt.
    Thank you for you suggestions – keeping me thinking.
