    Dystopian novel “100 POINTS” by Quig Shelby is published

    What would you do if you had 100 points only to spend on your education, housing and health?

    About the Book:
    Save The People have created the perfect egalitarian society from the ruins of global warming, where youth and health are celebrated in Britain’s constant sunshine. And to ensure that no individual takes more than another from the world’s remaining resources each citizen gets 100 points to spend on education, housing and health; just be careful when they’re gone. Anyone who reaches the age of sixty retires to glorious Scotland ‘where dreams come too’ and gets what they well and truly deserve. But when a shipwreck of drowned old-timers washes up on his beach the village policeman becomes more than a little interested in his own parent’s retirement, and begins an investigation with unforeseen consequences.

    Quig Shelby has previously published six other novels to date including:

    The Crocodile Masquerade
    The Concubine Affair
    The Scrying Glass
    3 SUM
    The Violent Sunflowers

    About the Author:
    No one let me into their world so I invented a few of my own. Welcome to my Universe.

    I'm a night owl and a hopeless romantic with a curious mind, half of it male and half female; the second half is lesbian.

    My advice on life is don't be afraid of being different, be afraid of being the same as everyone else.
    My favourite quote has to be:
    'Normality is a pavement comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.'
    (Vincent Van Gogh)

    Preface to the Book:
    “‘And now for a quick talk on our wonderful 100 points.’

    He covered the injustices of the rusting generation that sucked up the nation’s housing like vampire bats to rent as nest eggs. And they all laughed at the stories of road and trolley rage. There was a short monologue from the commissar whilst reading his notes on God’s approval of the 100 points, after which they all scanned through their condensed handbooks on offences that lost careless citizens points.

    ‘And that’s it, men,’ said the commissar, slamming his book shut.

    Once upon a time, he might have said ‘gentlemen’ but like its female counterpart ‘lady’, it had long been banned. The Party hierarchy had struggled to understand any reason for the terms except to elevate one citizen above another through ill-judged flattery and vanity. It was also believed they undermined the use of man and woman which were meant to be celebrated. As the Archbishop of Canterbury had said when weighing into the argument, ‘there was neither a gentleman nor a lady in the Garden of Eden.’”
