Novel with 3 E’s and PP community input
(This post was approved by PP)
Over two years ago, I posted a forum topic entitled “The World in 100 Years”. I was in the planning stages of a book series that’s heavily influenced by the 3 E’s. I asked the Peak Prosperity community to help me with the setting, and they didn’t disappoint. Fifty-five posts and a ton of collective brain power, and I had some interesting ideas to work with.
Here’s that thread: https://www.peakprosperity.com/forum-topic/the-world-in-100-years/
Thank you to everyone who helped me. Your input was invaluable. Some of the especially dark predictions for the future made me realize that I should concentrate on the near future, so I settled on 2050. One PP poster made a great point about having positive subplots, stating, “humans need hope.” I tried to balance the dark and the light, showing the corruption and despair, but also the possibilities to create a world worth inheriting.
Many topics and plot points in the book will be quite familiar to Peak Prosperity readers. One of the main characters is from a prominent banking family. Another is a permaculture farmer. Other plot points are admittedly unrealistic, but it’s fictional entertainment.
The first three books in the series are published, and the final two are nearly finished. Despite the controversial material, I’ve had some nice reviews.
“This is a must read and so plausible. One of the best books I have read in years.” – Mark ★★★★★
“Phil Williams has another hit in my opinion. Psycho Island is a beautiful piece of fiction …” – AZ Golfer ★★★★★

Cool! Looks like a fun read but we might not have to wait 30 years.
Thanks, Darren! I started writing this in 2018. So much has happened in such a short time. After watching the book trailer, Adam Taggert told me I should consider changing the title to 2025. Haha.
Update: I’ve given away 11 promo codes to listen to 2050: Psycho Island for FREE on Audible.com. I still have 14 left for those in the US.
For those in the UK, I have TONS of codes for Audible.UK. For some reason Audible gives me twice the codes in the UK as the US.
Please don’t feel bashful about asking for a promo code. My email: Phil AT PhilWBooks.com
First of all Phil, thank you for offering the book for free. That is a very fine present. As we live in Spain we cannot use your promo codes. But we are grateful for the free book. Lia and Gerrit
You’re welcome Lia and Gerrit! I wish Audible served other countries. The Ebook is free in the Spanish Amazon store though.
Got it! (from Amazon) I had grown weary of the apocalyptic novels I had been reading. This sounds exciting, will start on it tonight, and will review when done. Thanks!
I am listening to 2050 on Audible, today. So far, I’m enjoying it and recommend others get it too.
Thanks Phil! Downloaded it tonight with hopes of reading it on vacation next week. Thanks so much for sharing.
Thank you, Scott, Steve, and Nicky! I hope y’all enjoy the story.
