Ferrocement.com has published and sent water tank, home construction and sculpture manuals around the world since 1999. These manuals have always been free to read on line. Sales tapered off as computers became common everywhere. This fiction section grew from a question serendipitously posed in the ferrocement house building manual; What kind of economy and culture is it where the houses pay the people to live in themselves?

The first three chapters of Many Rivers were written along the banks of the Salinas River in California. Many Rivers began as a short story that asked a question, "What happens next?" Over two hundred copies have been handed out on the main street of Greenfield, Massachusetts. The idea there was to find out if people along the Connecticut River also like old fashioned story telling released chapter by chapter. The answer so far is "Yes." New chapters were written. More were requested. And now there are too many chapters for the author to hand out like the happy young newspaper boy he once was on main street.

These are fun chapters written with the hope they will stimulate others to write stories about what our world will be like when society is organized around healing Earth and having fun doing it. Chapter one can be read on-line for free by pasting this link into your browser http://www.zerowastenews.org/Many-rivers/manyRivers-ch1.html

This is a new story using an old fashioned style; New chapters are released close to monthly. I hope you enjoy reading this unfolding series as much as I enjoy writing it,
Garrett Connelly

A sustainable future hinges on liberty and roofs for all. The door to that idea was unexpectedly opened on the pages of ferrocement.com when describing ferrocement houses in the early 2000s. What kind of economy is it where the houses pay the people to live in themselves? This vista opened to new horizons when ferrocement.com developed a $9.20 per square foot house on this site and realized pride of place would lead formerly homeless parents to prepare their children for a better life with education. This results in an unintended secondary result of smaller families. A gradual population decline reduces overpopulation stress on Earth.

Though the a super affordable house still needs further development, these secondary unintended goods are real and lead to yet another question. What kind of economy leaves the Earth more bountiful with each generation? Will a peaceful relationship with Earth remain political fantasy when housing pays the rent via lower maintenance and insurance?

Pacifica explores these ideas with a fictional future that is light, fast-paced and fun. Even if one prefers the actual tactile book, Pacifica can be read online with no charge at http://www.ZeroWasteNews.org/chapters-web/Pacifica-ch0.html (Copy url and past this url into your browser to leave this page).
