Wanderers and Islanders(2002)
(The first book in the Legend of the Land series)
A novel by Steve Cockayne
In the secluded house, an invisible presence watches over Victor Lazarus as he carries out the instructions of an unknown benefactor ... In the village, Rusty Brown encounters a strange girl who tells him a secret that will haunt his dreams and lure him to the dark underworld of the city ... In the city, Leonardo Pegasus tinkers with the Multiple Empathy Engine - a bizarre contraption of his own invention that enables the user to see the whole world without going anywhere . An old man, a young boy and a magician. Three tales beautifully intertwine to create a wonderfully original story of magic and mystery, of secret pasts and forbidden futures - of wanderers and islanders.
"Steve Cockayne has created something fascinating and strange. It resonates like a sudden memory - one that is intricate, important and moving." - China Miéville
