Overview


The 20th Century is over and done with and nothing can be changed. Or is it? Felice Picano’s two short novels take delicious what-if peeks at outwitting Time’s (seemingly) unbending Arrow.

In Ingoldsby, a handsome graduate student finds himself caretaking a Midwestern architectural treasure in which not everything or everyone is what they seem—or when they seem either! But a sexy newcomer challenges him to change all that, for himself, and for a gay youth way out of his own time.

In Wonder City of the West, a man too young in spirit to be at retirement age takes a leap back to Golden Age Hollywood. He encounters youth, friendship, a movie star lover, and talents he never knew he possessed. But as he succeeds beyond his dreams, he must ask—is he merely a tool for a shadowy group with a far larger purpose?

Provocative, mind-bending, sensual, and entertaining, 20th Century Unlimited is an unexpected addition to an established body of work by an author unafraid to confound and surpass expectations.
