    I’ve been wondering… where is Beacon?

    • Rad says:

      It’s a secret… an island, I kind of always pictured it being in one of the big oceans, but quite far from land and major flight/boat routes.

  2. How is it that nobody got in trouble for kidnapping kids for years and years?

    • Rad says:

      Because it was a project sanctioned by the UN and implicating the majority of governments – a strategy to keep the human race going was deemed worth the sacrifice.

    This is an interesting concept, how did you come up with it?

    • Rad says:

      I wanted to write a longform story and I initially didn’t know exactly what was happening, but the idea of missing kids and the impact on them, their families and friends was a key hook. The idea of building a ‘perfect’ society came soon after – I wanted to imagine something close to the idea of utopia as a twist on the dystopian format we see a lot. And as I wrote characters and designed sets, other parts started to fall​ into place.
