Hispania africana

The novel is progressing. I’ve hit the 50K mark and plot and characters are showing signs of improvement, partly because I’m putting a bit more time into research and a bit less into peripatetic weird shit collection. One of the puzzles I’m working through at the moment is the lack of a sub-Saharan chiliastic movement in Spain to parallel the North African Al Qaeda brigade or home-grown millennialists like the Kingdom of Aragon Cataloonies. Post-legalisation there are still semi-autonomous multinational communities of Africans squatting up and down the coast, but for some reason they don’t seem to have latched onto the mythol0gy of African kingdoms in Spain three thousand years ago, occupying land between Cádiz and vaguely Frankish entities to the east. March, you buggers, march: it’s all yours.
