Creating the World

St Guthlac’s College is based on a school I used to work at called St Phil’s, a state-school, former convent created in an old mansion. It had some crazy corridors, including some amazing attics and cellars.

Inspiration for Superfreak

I’ve been to many schools that have some equivalent of the Unit, but not like the one I described! That’s a mixture of teaching three lessons back to back in Winter with condensation dripping down the inside of the windows.

The flesh bunker Bobs builds is based on an alternative vision of the future: what if it’s not all steel and silicon and glass? What can we do with biotech? It’s based on the future technology of the Dead City, which is essentially a flesh-grown monastery, partly based on the four years I lived in the same building as a very large monastery.
