Having been commissioned to novelize the independent, post-apocalyptic sci fi film “Crumbs”, written and directed by Miguel Llanso, I decided that the novel needed a map in order to explain all the geographical places visited in the odyssey.
The setting is mostly in the Federal Democratic Republic of Trans Amhara Oromo which is a small, fictional country located in east Africa on the Gulf of Amar. Formerly a European colony, the Amhara Oromans fought for and won their independence from Belgium in 1983.
Here’s a draft version of it that I’ve been working on…
Hat tip to Joseph Conrad, J.R.R. Tolkein, and an online list of Ethiopian baby names.
The novel is well in to the second draft.
