It’s been a while since one of these, huh? Over two months since a location profile. I was saving this one for last because, really, all the other profiles I’ve done so far are more important. Yes, even the wild animals one.

These posts pertain to locations found in my stories. From Nottle to Shellport!

The other big island in the area alongside Hackney—and perhaps the more important one, though not in the novel Slubes—is Interp. It’s roughly the same size as Hackney, but more oval in its shape with no peninsulas. In the center of the island and taking up half its space is the vast city of Interpolis, while off a cliff face to the west is Shellport. Two beaches lay to the north and south—to the south, the popular tourist destination of Sandy Beach, and to the north, the unpopular nobody’s destination of Rocky Beach (which is made of very craggy, exposed stone).

There’s one thing you should know going into this: I am not going to explain where the name came from. I haven’t a single clue where I came up with that. Apparently there’s a London borough of the same name, though, but neither that nor horses have anything to do with the island Hackney.
So, Hackney is an island. I already said that. It’s where the majority of Slubes takes place, and is divided into a west and east half. The west half has the village of Nottle and a volcano called Mt. Dynamo, and the east half features Gelago City, Reptibia Rainforest, and an old manor that is unkempt and overgrown but with a manor house that is kept fairly clean by its residents, the ghostly spiest (hence its title of Spiest Manor). Oh yeah there’s this feature that cuts off the post on the main index page thingy, forgot about that.

So I’ve talked about my book Slubes somewhat so far, but even in “The Next Big Thing” Blog Hop post I didn’t really get into it. So, just what is the world of Slubes, and by extension, the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos?
Slubes (rhymes with tubes) takes place in a universe that is not called the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos, because universes don’t have names. We don’t even know if there are other universes! This universe may just be the daydream of a lounging slube, and of course his universe is just the madcap tales conjured up by a goofball in a wizard hat who happens to live in the universe that slube is daydreaming about. HA HA INFINITY IS FUNNY GUYS
