Aer Mutatio: How Environmentalism Fixes The Roman Empire by Ayami Tyndall

Global Warming is happening, but that doesn't mean we can't try to stop it. 

  • 44 BC: Julius Caesar survives assassination attempt.

  • 410 AD: Romans repel King Alaric I.

  • 1010 AD: Albinus Gordian is elected Emperor and begins a new age of environmentalism in the Roman Empire.

Global Warming is happening, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try to stop it.

Spanish anchorman turned international reporter Joe Body is setting out on a globe trotting escapade of unprecedented scale and insanity. His journey begins with the election of Emperor Albinus Gordian, Green Dictator, and ends with the total collapse of industrialized society in the name of saving the earth, but along the way he is on the scene at every major global development in environmentalism.

From eco-mutations in Japan to attacks by anti-environmental-extremist pollutorists in Canada, Joe is ready for anything, but even that might not be enough.

A whimsical romp through the gauntlet of environmental politics of a warped history, AER MUTATIO is a satirical adventure spanning five continents and endless laughs.

All Hail Emperor Albinus Gordian

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Jan 7, 2014: Ayami Tyndall is a prolific writer of online cyberpunk and science fiction, but here is a completely different, earlier work from her – a comedy spoof of current events. In an alternate earth, in which the Roman Empire never fell, they’re encountering global warming problems in the year 1010, and a would-be imperial candidate, Albinus Gordian, is touring with his special presentation "Incommodus Veritas De Dies Diei Secundum Cras".

I love the original and irreverant concept, and it looks like a great setup up for a fun and mind twisting romp through an even more ridiculous version of our crazy world. However, a comedy piece lives and dies on its funniness, and personally, I found the humour a bit strained. The alternate history didn’t convince me either, because too many things seemed to have turned out the same way as our world which probably wouldn’t have. But everyone’s sense of humour is different, so it’s definitely worth a look.
