There have been several inquiries concerning Outpost 86, the prison in Antarctica mentioned in my post about The Devil’s Work. The Devil’s Work specifically singles out the character Wesley Black, the prison’s most notorious tenant, and one of his adventures. Outpost 86 and Wesley are chronicled in detail in the novel, Outpost 86, which is in work, and has been for some time. Wesley is one of the main supporting characters.
Outpost 86 is the world’s most remote and technically advanced prison whose area is approximately 5 times the size of the Pentagon, which creates a labyrinth where the inmates can go without seeing each other for lengthy periods of time in the sparsely populated interior. The reason it is sparsely populated is it is relatively new and only select criminals are sentenced there. These inmates are fitted with special sensors that allow the governing entity to keep tabs on them from their Wyoming based headquarters made from the skeleton of an abandoned and decommissioned Atlas D missile site north of Cheyenne Wyoming on Highway 85.
The only entrance to the prison is controlled with a chamber bookended by two blast doors. The outer door is opened, the prisoner is placed inside, the outer door closes, and then the inner door opens to admit the prisoner to the interior of the prison. After a few minutes, the inner door automatically closes and the chamber fills with cyanide gas, so if the prisoner chooses to not enter the prison, they die. Due to a joint effort, a military base was built inside a mountain adjacent to Outpost 86 that is charged with supply and maintenance functions.
Blood nurses is taking the brunt of my time (when I am working on novels) and Outpost 86 must wait until it is finished. I hope to have it out sometime next year (doubtful), but I have to finish Blood Nurses first and I never know what life will throw at me or what weather will destroy that demands my time and energy. I have included a couple of possible covers below,but I haven’t decided on anything concrete. In the meantime, read The Devil’s Work and begin your insight into a dark and important character in Outpost 86.
