We live in a Newtonian world of Einsteinian physics ruled by Frankenstein logic.
- David Russell.
Hauntspace is basically a haunted house story writ large. The house which you cannot escape is the Sol solar system, and like in any good haunted house story you are in as much danger from your peers as from the boogieman itself. The rich and powerful believe they can buy their way out of danger while the thugs believe they can succeed through might and the intelligent seek a way to manipulate the situation to their own gain. All the while each of them is itching to throw the weak into the maw of any threat that arises for a few more seconds of life.
Although the setting is sci-fi with elements of horror and fantasy, the technology and science is very much hard science. Based on current theories and understanding of the universe as best the writers understand them. The places your characters will visit are not alien worlds (mostly), they are the planets and moons of our own solar system. The aliens you meet come not from other worlds, they come from within, they are us after science has altered them to serve another purpose. Or they are the familiar twisted by the energies of another dimension we wish we had never discovered.
Watch this space for more developments :)
