(2017)
A collection of stories by

 
 
In this astonishing, variegated assortment of tales, award-winning author Paul Di Filippo covers all the themes and modes he is best-known for, and ventures into new territory as well.

- Visit a hermetic city where beauty is the only currency.

- Experience a steampunk fable in which nothing is what it first seems, and a young man's future rests on finding his true father.

- Hang out with the techno-savvy, social-media gypsies who form the new elite in the not-too-distant future.

- Ride a wild ribofunk express train into the badlands where a man's skin is not his own.

- Experience a counterfacutal World War II where victory is acheived by amazing rays.

- Vist a haunted Italian city where the Neolithic and the present live side-by-side, and a hero who falls in love with a goddess must battle her ancient foe.

- Visit an Orwellian future redeemed only by the imagination and love of a tortured dissenter.

These are just some of the uncanny tales contained in this collection, incorporating comedy and tragedy, laughter and tears!
