Introducing "The Red Zone: A Football Story From A Hot Planet"
The debut of a new longform fiction project on The Action Cookbook Newsletter
Hello! I’m debuting a new feature here on The Action Cookbook Newsletter, something I’ve teased over the past week. A new work of longform fiction entitled The Red Zone: A Football Story From A Hot Planet, it’s a speculative fiction story following an independent football team struggling to survive in a climate change-ravaged version of the year 2070 where the United States has drawn back its borders.
I plan to deliver this story to paying subscribers in regular serial installments over the next several months; today, I’m sending the first chapter to everyone. It’s too long to fit the whole thing in an email, so the first half of it is included in this blast, and there’s a link at the bottom to continue reading the whole thing on the website. (You can also start on the website, here.)
This will not replace any of the regular content you’ve come to expect from The Action Cookbook Newsletter, including the much-loved Friday lifestyle guides; it’s a bonus feature on top of all that.
I hope you read it; I hope you enjoy it. It’s a story I’ve been working on in one form or another for several years, and the time feels right to share it. I appreciate your support.
Now: The Red Zone.
Hi! If you’ve come here looking for The Red Zone… well, I’ve taken it down, because it needs to be finished as a whole piece. Stay tuned…
