Peter joins the navy: civilization as we know it ends.Authors critique of his own novelThis is the first book I wrote and published, and it is not very good. I have considered removing it from publication and may eventually do this.The character development is very poor and the characters in the story are not believable. Andy, the main character is autistic so he does not always react conventionally to his emotions.

This is not spelled out until the second book of the cycle. In my much later book, Scar Tail the Platypus, the autistic character is much more believable.The title A Bad Boy was a poor choice because this sort of title is mainly associated with erotic books. None of my books are erotic or pornographic.The book does have a story, and that is one of the things I was aiming for.The science of the book is reasonably well worked out, but things happened much faster than they are likely to in real life.

Although it may not seem like it, the human race and our civilization gets through the coming problems much better than many people are predicting.A Bad Boy is the first book of the Bad Boy Cycle.The Bad Boy CycleA Bad BoyAli the PeacemakerExtrasolar MenaceSearch for Extraterrestrial IntelligenceThese 4 books tell the story of the Human race from 1995 to 2214, mostly told from the perspective of successive generations of the Jones Family and their friends.

At each stage the technology is that of the period. The first part is in the recent past, so the technology is what we are familiar with. In the early parts of the 21st century, the technology is largely based on extension of the current technology. Later in the century, there are some basic new inventions.This means that the cycle become science fiction although this only starts to become obvious about four fifths of the way through the first book when the effects of Global Warming become quite different from the predictions.
