Chronicle Series

I found these diaries among the remains of a house that burned down in Nottingham in 2012. They were written on some kind of computing device that I’ve never seen before. It’s taken me a while to extract the pages from the device, and get them into a normal format.

I don’t know if they’re a work of fiction, maybe someone’s life’s work and I’m stealing from someone who died in a house fire.

Or maybe they aren’t. Maybe they’re notes from the future. I don’t know. The device was certainly futuristic enough. Some of the things these diaries describe are horrific, some of them amazing and wonderful. I don’t know if I’ll change things by publishing them, or maybe I’ll bring these things to be.

I’m not a philosopher.

There are a large number of years, I've managed to find files for over a hundred so far. I haven’t read them all myself, I've only managed to extract these few so far. I’ll be releasing them as I manage to pull them from the device, one year at a time.

I’ve looked for information about Andrew Woodmaker, the supposed author of these diaries, and I can’t find anything. Maybe I just don’t know where to look.

If they’re just a work of fiction, and I’m publishing the last work of someone that died, I’m sorry, I don’t know what your name was, and I hope you don’t mind my publishing them.

If this turns out to really be a diary from the future, I hope it can guide us to a better world.
