Angels of Sex in Queensland Book 10 of the series The Lodging for the Rose - Large-Format Edition (Magazine Style) The novel is fantasy focused on science. It presents a daring attempt to do what has not been done for a century, and to some degree never. It explores the challenge to take the Principle of Universal Love to the grassroots of our social world, and not exclude sex, but to uplift it above depravity, above morality, even above its tallest image in Christianity, onto the lateral platform where we all stand side by side as human beings "clothed with the sun." The exploration is wide-ranging, though it all unfolds on a small island where leading-edge researchers come together from many parts of the world. The novel "Angels of Sex in Queensland" is a part of the series "The Lodging for the Rose" - Book 10 (Episode 6B) - Published by Cygni Communications Ltd. North Vancouver, BC, Canada (www.ice-age-ahead-iaa.ca)
Lying in north Northamptonshire, close to the borders with Leicestershire and Rutland, the neighbouring parishes of Corby and Great Oakley were formerly part of the ancient administrative division of Corby hundred. Both remained agricultural villages, typical of much of rural Northamptonshire before 1932 when the landscape of the area was dramatically altered by large-scale industrialisation associated with the production of iron and steel following the discovery of rich ironstone deposits to the north and east of Corby village. Corby was most directly affected by these changes, with the parish experiencing a dramatic rise in population after the Stewarts & Lloyds Company chose to concentrate their entire steel producing operation there. Between 1932 and 1950, the increasing population resulted in the hasty construction, firstly by the Stewarts & Lloyds Company and later by the Corby UDC, of housing estates on former agricultural land adjacent to the steelworks, before Corby was designated a New Town in April 1950 and responsibility for it passed to the Corby Development Corporation. From this point on, Great Oakley was inexorably drawn into the expanding new town as it spread southwards, eventually being incorporated firstly into Corby urban district in1967 and in 1993 into Corby Borough. Although Corby is perhaps best known for the social problems or "New Town Blues" that blighted it after the steelworks (the town's principal employer) closed in 1980, this volume documents the lesser known medieval and early modern history of Corby and Great Oakley; it shows how generations of inhabitants utilised the rich natural geology and the abundant woodland to supplement the local agrarian economy, before examining in detail Corby's industrialisation, physical and economic growth, post-industrial decline and 21st-century regeneration.
