Overview

Carlos Theopelli had been dead for years, and no one cared about his life's work: the so-called "Destiny Matrices." As far as most people were concerned, Theopelli was just another crackpot scientist, and pretty much a jerk, to boot.

But not to Angela. And not to the mage-dwarf Caleb Mundo and his pet mindbeast Alice. To them, Theopelli's notebook -- and his corpse -- might be the key to survival. Everything swirled around the confused mind of Joan the Flower Man, who had used pages from the notebook to wrap the flowers she sold on the NYC streets. ***

Add into the mix Dirk, a former history professor turned rock singer, as well as Ecclesiastes Mitsumishi, an eccentric mortician, and Abel Henderson, a preacher with a pet prophet, and you're ready for a wild romp through multiple realities, as well as world-saving heroics. ***

Expect the unexpected at the ABRAXAS MARVEL CIRCUS!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A struggling rock 'n' roll singer, a funeral director with an irrepressible flair for comedy, a hermaphroditic flower vendor, and a dead genius become drawn into an other-worldly search for a lost book reputed to contain the secret of predicting all the futures of the world. An eclectic blend of the mystical, the pseudoscientific, and the manic, this fast-paced fantasy by the author of The Crystal Memory is highly recommended.
